In 2013 we were rated as Outstanding in all categories by Ofsted and in 2014 we were named ‘Overall School of the Year’ by the Times. Due to our heritage as a Specialist Language College our curriculum maintains a strong international flavour, including immersion language teaching in Mandarin and French. We are a busy and vibrant school with high expectations and aspirations for all members of our learning community. 

Bohunt School became founder of the Bohunt Education Trust (BET) in 2014. 

BET is ambitious. Beyond running its individual schools highly successfully, we aim to transform education in Britain by sharing the experiences, insights and methods we’ve pioneered in own schools.
