Bradford Forster Acadmey is an exciting, vibrant, student-centred place of learning, which is fully commited to providing the highest quality education for all of its students.
Our aim is to prepare our young people for a future in which they have the best possible life chances; one where they will be employable, determined, independent, courteous and open minded. We believe that education can transform lives and so we provide a rounded learning experience that emphasises traditional standards, exemplary behaviour and respect, alongside a broad, balanced, challenging curriculum and a comprehensive range of enrichment activities.
Voted ‘outstanding’ by SIAMS, and ‘Good’ in all areas by Ofsted, Bradford Forster Academy is a forward-thinking learning community and, as Principal, I am tremendously proud to lead a dedicated team of skilled staff in delivering exceptional education for every student.
Our Christian values – which were chosen by our students – of Hope, Endurance, Forgiveness and Trust are exemplified in all that we do, along with an ‘attitude of gratitude’ for our wonderful school and the excellent teaching, extra curricular activities and facilities that we enjoy. We believe that these timeless values embody the way we should behave and treat each other in order to ensure a safe, successful and happy school experience.
For us it is vital that we work in partnership with our parents and carers, as we recognise that you are the biggest influence on a young person, and we want to work with you to support your child’s development. We provide some of the best pastoral care in the area and work tirelessly, with our families, to help ensure any barriers your child faces do not limit their potential.
Together, the staff and students create a vibrant and engaging school where there is a true sense of family and where we work hard to ensure all our young people develop skills, independence and resilience in both their academic and personal lives.
If you are a prospective parent or carer, your child will thrive if they join us. We are very proud of our school and so, whilst this website will give you a flavour of our school, I offer you an open invitation to visit and see for yourself the amazing work going on here.
