Who we are
We have been improving schools since 2011
Our multi-academy trust was founded eight years ago by Education Development Trust, an international company with charitable status that has been providing a range of education services all over the world for over 50 years.
Since starting out under the name CfBT Schools Trust with just three schools, Anthem now serves over 8,000 children and young people in 16 schools across the East Midlands, London and Thames Valley.
All our schools are unique, and each has something special to offer. This rich diversity is what inspired us to change our name in the summer of 2019. We are no longer simply a ‘Centre for British Teachers’ (CfBT), but a place where everyone, wherever they are from, has an opportunity to learn and grow, and to be valued for what they bring to our community of schools.
Together, we create ambitious and successful schools where every child thrives.
