Perry Beeches The Academy Trust

The Perry Beeches Academy Trust partnership is delighted to be offering the largest number of School Direct places within the UK.

Perry Beeches The Academy is the lead school within the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) partnership and has been recognised with accolades such as “Most Improved School In The UK – Ever” 2010, “Secondary School Of The Year”, “Overall Outstanding School Of The Year” TES 2011/2012 and was awarded “Outstanding” in all areas by Ofsted in 2013. Perry Beeches 2 – The Free School was also graded as “Outstanding” in all areas by Ofsted in 2014.
Such success has led to national recognition by the DFE and the opening of PB2 – The Free School in 2012, PB 3 – The Free School in 2013 and most recently PB 4 – The Free School in 2014.

“One of the most successful comprehensive schools ever in Britain, PB I, which had a pass rate of 20% got it up to a pass rate of 80% and has now created other good schools, PB II, PB III and next year PB IV” .
(Rt. Hon David Cameron, MP, Prime Minster – Opening of PB III 3rd September 2013).

“There are some amazing schools in Birmingham, there are some great independent schools, there are some great grammar schools, but I have to say the best schools in Birmingham are Perry Beeches I and Perry Beeches II, comprehensive schools doing an amazing job for every child”.
(Rt. Hon Michael Gove MP)


PB’s mission is to create a small network of outstanding schools working in the Birmingham area to ensure those in the area have access to a high quality education where students succeed. Perry Beeches believes this can be achieved through clear leadership, outstanding staff and strong relationships between students, parents/carers and the local community and the wider national and international links.

As a family of academies and free schools, Perry Beeches now offers an exciting and ambitious vision for the future. PB students benefit from the expertise of professionals who raise students’ aspirations and learning. Our academy and free school enjoys the leadership, support and challenge of our Trust Members and Directors who refuse to accept that there is a ceiling on what can be achieved.
