Brunel Academies

Welcome from the ceo

The Brunel SEN Multi Academy Trust (BSM) is a 0-25 multi academy trust specialising in the special education sector. BSM was established in March 2016 and has grown over the last five years. The Trust now includes All Aboard Nursery, part of BASIS (Brunel Autism Support and Inclusion Services), two Special Primary Schools, The Chalet School and Brimble Hill School, two Special Secondary Schools, Uplands School and Churchward School, as well as Horizons College, an independent 16-25 specialist college, part of BSM’s subsidiary company, Brunel Education (BE).  

These 6 fabulous SEND provisions work together to deliver exceptional learning experiences that lead to significantly improved life chances and outcomes for our children and young people with SEND.

The Trust has the experience, skills and expertise to focus on special education enabling the development of diverse quality provisions while maintaining high standards and performance. The Trust’s vision is to deliver this aspirational specialist approach through a “boutique” MAT which values and recognises the need for each specialist provision to be creative and unique to ensure they meet the individual needs of the children and young people.

Each of our provisions are committed to the BSM/BE vision and have firmly embedded the core values Aspiration, Integrity & Inclusion in all they do.

Family really is at the heart of all we do – both our children and young people’s families and the BSM/BE family itself. We always put our children and families first, recognising the incredible job they do every day to support their child in achieving happiness and a place in their community.

The commitment to our BSM/BE family and our people has been vital to see us through the challenges that we have all faced over the past months of the Covid-19 pandemic. BSM/BE remain firmly committed to focussing on the wellbeing of the BSM/BE family and as we move into 2021/22 BSM/BE will be able to focus on enabling a positive approach to learning and support our children and young people to make progress in all areas of their development.

To be able to offer these life changing opportunities for our children and young people we need to have exceptional staff. We invest heavily in the people who work in our provisions and believe in developing our staff across every level of the BSM/BE family. This investment has been vital in supporting and enabling staff to continue safely deliver their role, while embracing a new and complex way of working.

Individuals in the BSM/BE family make a real difference every day to the lives of children and young people with SEND.

We all believe and commit to the vision …No barriers only potential
