About Us

We recognise that delivering the best possible outcomes for children is the main priority of all school leaders and governors. The aim of BESST is to help school leaders and governors deliver a great education to all children and young people in Buckinghamshire, allowing them, regardless of their starting point, to realise their potential and embark on a positive and exciting future.

BESST aims to deliver against identified needs in Buckinghamshire. We will ensure that our capacity is directed to those areas which school leaders and governors have told us are the areas of greatest need. Where external partners can provide expert support and training that best meets the needs of schools, we will signpost schools to these opportunities.
Our services will be delivered by our team of school improvement and Buckinghamshire Council experts who care passionately about supporting schools to secure the best possible outcomes for their pupils and students. BESST services run alongside our statutory work. Income from our competitively priced BESST services will help to deliver excellent school improvement support in Buckinghamshire for today and the future.
