Work's really progressing on our new build. Due for completion in February 2022.



Barton Court Academy Trust (BCAT) is proud to be opening this brand new secondary school, a non-selective, co-educational, 11-18 years school called Barton Manor School (BMS) in September 2022 to Year 7 students. There will be 150 places open to Year 7 only in September 2022 and the new BMS building is sited on Spring Lane, Canterbury on the former Chaucer School site.

As part of its formal responsibilities, the Barton Court Academy Trust was required to consult with parents and carers, as well as the local community and other key stakeholders. The consultation process was undertaken between 4 May 2021 at 9am and 22 June 2021 at 9am.

The School’s brand new amazing state-of-the art design build will be open to 150 Year 7 students in September 2022 and the Trust believes this outstanding design, combined with an innovative curriculum, excellent teaching and learning, and strong pastoral care and guidance, will provide outstanding education for the local community for generations to come.
