On 1st April 2018, Great Bedwyn School joined the Excalibur Academy Trust, which includes St John’s in Marlborough. This decision was taken by the school and its stakeholders after years of research and deliberation.

Bringing Excellence to Education
The school works closely with the Excalibur Teaching School Alliance. This means that Great Bedwyn can be part of training, supporting, nurturing and recruiting the very best teachers for schools within and beyond the alliance.

- Continued Professional Development (CPD)
- Professional Qualifications
- School to School Support
- Research & Development
- Coaching & Mentoring
What does this mean for us?
Not only will Great Bedwyn be able to continue to host students from Bath Spa University,it also means that we will be able to access school to school support which will (by drawing on a wealth of expertise from all partnership schools) positively impact on our continuous drive for school improvement. In addition we will be able to get involved with research projects, access high quality professional development for our staff and get involved in initiatives that will ensure we remain up to date with the latest best practise in education.
