About the Federation
Our Federal Vision
"To be Britain's highest performing federation, where customer and community needs are met, students are happy, successful and reach their full potential"
"To provide innovative, exciting and relevant learning opportunities that lead to employment and/or further study."
"One purpose, one team, one standard."
Led by the Barnfield Education Partnership Trust (BEPT) as the sponsor, the Federation includes Barnfield College, a Beacon College (16 years upwards), Barnfield South and West Academies (11–18 years), Barnfield Moorlands Free School (4–11 years), Barnfield Vale Academy (4-11 years) and the country’s first FE sponsored Studio School, Barnfield Skills Academy (14–19 years), with further academies planned for the near future.
We are in the planning stages of welcoming on board Barnfield East Academy (previously Putteridge High School), Barnfield Kingsbury Academy (previously St George’s Lower School in Leighton Buzzard), and Barnfield Sandy Academy (previously Sandy Upper School). We look forward to sharing best practise and expertise with the newest members of our family and increasing opportunities for all.
As a federation Barnfield strives for excellence in all that we do, keeping the student centre stage at all times.
