Our Academies

    CEO Welcome

    Dear website visitor. Many thanks for taking the time to look at our website. I hope you will
    get a great flavour from these pages of the work of The Beckmead Trust with our children,
    families and staff. We welcome visitors so please feel free to contact the central team in
    Sanderstead to arrange a visit to any of our schools to see first-hand the wonderful work of
    our staff and the fantastic achievements of our pupils.

    As a relatively young trust we have been working hard to ensure that a clarity of direction is
    held by all our schools that contributes to and enhances the vision of the trust. This vision
    places improving the life chances of our children at the forefront of everything we do and as
    a trust we feel a moral purpose to undertake this work to the best of our ability.
    We aim to provide a united partnership of excellent academies that are primarily linked by
    the non-negotiable values of trust, honesty, integrity, respect and empathy enhanced by
    outstanding local leadership and governance.

    The Croydon schools are now entering their second term as three stand-alone academies.
    This new format has brought focus to many areas of the South London hub and is popular
    with pupils and staff. The official opening of Ropemakers was a landmark for the school
    moving from contingency accommodation into its extraordinary state of the art new build
    on the outskirts of Hailsham. A great day for all members of the school community included
    the pupils burying a 25-year time capsule at the front of the school for the 2046 cohort of

    The trust continues to work towards converting the outstanding Wells Park School
    (Chigwell) into Beckmead which should be completed by Easter. Wells Park will bring their
    expertise of residential care to the trust as both of our new schools in Essex will have some
    boarding places. We are also at various stages of the delivery programme for our new
    schools: The Greenwell Academy (Harlow), The Sir Geoff Hurst Academy (Chelmsford) and
    The London River Academy, (Richmond). Beckmead continues to be ambitious to work with
    a growing number of vulnerable children and will always strive to deliver the best possible
    education and care for our children and families. I am proud of our children, staff and
    schools and urge to you visit the fabulous provisions which make up the Beckmead family.

    Dr Jonty Clark OBE.
    CEO The Beckmead Trust.
