About Carlton Bolling
Carlton Bolling is an Outstanding school which has been on a rapid improvement journey over recent years, gaining an Ofsted “outstanding “rating (2017) less than two years after coming out of “special measures”. We recently achieved the World Class School Quality Mark (2018) confirming our continuing commitment to move the school forward to the very highest levels nationally with focussed new initiatives and innovations.
Our shared vision of “Excellence for All” runs through all aspects of students` school life. As well as outstanding academic outcomes the school provides a breadth of curriculum and enrichment opportunities which add value to every child, preparing them for modern British life.
Staff enjoy working at Carlton Bolling and are supported and encouraged to lead and develop practice with the quality of teaching and learning being a significant strength. “Pupils and staff are enthused and excited to excel. Pupils and staff work together within a harmonious community, where they are fully supported”: Ofsted, November 2017. I am very proud to work alongside established teachers, leaders and staff with a proven track record in delivering high quality learning with excellent outcomes for students. We offer bespoke and regular CPD opportunities that are linked to career stage; this ensures our best teachers are given development opportunities for future leadership roles. Our ITT, NQT and Teach First development programmes are robust, fit for purpose and lead to a significant number of trainees securing permanent jobs with us. We have recently partnered with Bradford College to facilitate our own Carlton Bolling Route into teacher training.
Fostering close links with families and the community are embedded in our ethos as we value their engagement and support. Our sports academy concept has successfully established the boxing and cricket academies, both are open to staff, students and the BD3 community.
We are proud to be the founding school in the Carlton Academy Trust and look forward to working with other schools on their journey to excellence. These are exciting times at Carlton Bolling and we sincerely hope you will decide to join us on our journey.
