take our short survey


BEP champions a deeply good, civic and academic education for every child in the city.

Birmingham Education Partnership (BEP) exists for the benefit of every publicly funded school in Birmingham and seeks to be co-led by and built on the strengths of all Birmingham Schools. BEP is committed to no school being isolated and sees that local, city and national connectivity is a key to success for schools at every stage of their development.

BEP believes it takes a whole city to raise a child. If schools do well, then children do well and if children do well our city will flourish.
