In January 2015 the Bitterley School community took the decision to become part of a Multi-Academy Trust(MAT). There were a number of choices open to us but we decided to become the first partner school with the Hereford Diocese MAT named the Bishop Anthony Educational Trust (BAET). This decision was taken for a number of reasons taking into consideration the demise of the Local Authority, the need for continual challenge and support for our school and the long term sustainability of Bitterley Primary School. Most importantly the decision was taken only after it was agreed that the move would be to the benefit of the children of Bitterley School. On the 1st July 2015 Bitterley School became Bitterley Primary School Academy 2 -11 as part of the BAET.
