Bohunt Education Trust contains eight secondary schools and supports up to 11,000 pupils aged 11-18 on the south coast of England.
The trust operates across five Local Authority areas and comprises:
- Bohunt School, Liphook, including sixth form provision

- Bohunt School, Worthing
- Bohunt School, Wokingham, including sixth form provision
- Bohunt School, Horsham
- Costello School, Basingstoke
- The Petersfield School

- State Boarding School, including sixth form provision operating across three sites.
There are approximately 1,200 FTE teachers and 600 support staff employed by the Trust, and all of the schools are at least Ofsted 'Good', with both Liphook and Petersfield being 'Outstanding'.
BET’s approach to teaching and learning is innovative and immersive – a blend of the latest education thinking, technology and practice both in and outside the classroom. The Board sets the highest expectations for the Trust and its students, and this is reflected in the results and Ofsted progress.
Across all schools, BET has introduced a range of game-changing teaching methods, including language immersion in Mandarin (Liphook being the first UK State school to introduce Mandarin as a main-stream language), cross-cultural projects with Sweden, China and Germany, and an integrated Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) curriculum developed in partnership with business and industry.
BET is at the forefront of the use of 1:1 iPads for teaching and learning. In addition to numerous opportunities for international exchange visits, BET has an active outdoor education programme. Bohunt Liphook is the only school in the South of England to be a self-certifying authority for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, across Bronze, Silver and Gold.
The Trust has an annual turnover of £70m.
