About us

Bourton Meadow Initial Teacher Training Centre is attached to Bourton Meadow Academy and operates under Bourton Meadow Education Trust (BMET).  

Based in Buckingham, the partnership is ideally placed between Milton Keynes, Aylesbury, Oxford and Northampton. We currently have 16 schools that operate in our partnership.

It is an establised provider of initial teacher training - recognised by Ofsted as an outstanding provider and has been since its formation in 2001.  

"The excellent centre-based training and outstanding school-based training in behaviour management, the teaching of phonics, writing, mathematics and in developing trainees’ understanding of the new primary curriculum." Ofsted 2014

We also work very closely with our excellent partnership schools, which helps us to provide the highest quality of training across a wide range of contxts. This close partnership also leads to exceptionally high employment rates with 100% of trainees gaining employment at the end of the course.

"Leaders and managers of the course have pursued their vision for providing outstanding teachers for partnership schools uncompromisingly and relentlessly since the course was first established ...." Ofsted 2014
