Bradford authority identifies a clear correlation between wards with high deprivation and a lack of positive outcomes across a range of measures.  We’re a highly inclusive school fully committed to improving a range of outcomes for our students.  We make a real difference to the lives of our students and welcome applications from others who wish to join us in this important work.
