Our proposal to join the Better Futures Multi-Academy Trust

On 3rd December 2018, Bilborough 6th Form College’s governors opted to secure its future as a strong and successful sixth form college by accepting an offer to become a founding member of a brand new Multi-Academy Trust. The Better Futures Multi-Academy Trust (BFMAT) was designed with sixth form colleges in mind and is sponsored by Coventry University. Its first member college, King Edward VI in Nuneaton, joined in January 2019.

Along with applying to become an academy, the important next steps for Bilborough 6th Form College and BFMAT are to carry out the necessary due diligence and to consult on the proposal with our stakeholders.

Consultation on the proposal is taking place until 12 noon on 15th March 2019.

Our Consultation Document presents an overview of our proposal which we see as a natural next step in our collaboration with other Sixth Forms, as well as an opportunity to provide a unique student experience at Bilborough. The college’s name and its location will remain unchanged. College governors and leaders see very significant benefits for its students from working with other sixth form colleges across the country and a leading UK university.
