Bradford Academy Primary welcomes students from the age of two to eleven, from a wide range of backgrounds. We were set up in 2010 and are now established as a vibrant, happy successful school.

“A city on a hill cannot be hidden”
Our mission is to make a difference.
Whatever brings you to our website, I hope that you leave with a sense of who we are and curious to find out more.
The Academy opened in 2007 and since then we have grown both in size and ambition. With over 1800 learners from the ages of 2 to 19, we have transformed the community in which we are deeply rooted. The majority of our youngsters remain with us into Post-16 and we have a tradition of sending 80% of our learners into higher education each year.
With faith at the heart of all that we do, I am proud to lead a team of dedicated staff who are enthusiastic about learning, and committed to our young people and their educational and spiritual journey. We work with a range of partners to ensure that the experience of our young people is personalised, appropriate and challenging. This was recently recognised through receipt of the prestigious TES award for Community and Collaboration.
We are a “Good” school as recognised by OFSTED both in February 2013 and December 2017. We are rightly proud that all aspects of our provision; Early years, Primary, Secondary and Post-16 are consistently good and have been since 2013. You can read the full report in the OFSTED section of our website. We have also been awarded the Professional Development Quality Mark from University College London at Platinum level for our training and development of staff.
On a more personal note, I came to teaching 25 years ago and have never looked back. I have worked in Bradford schools for most of my career and am committed to making a difference in our region. Access, choice and freedom from discrimination are guiding principles at Bradford Academy and all in our community are challenged to ensure these are at the heart of working and learning here.
It is our mission to ensure that we secure bright and prosperous futures for all the young people at Bradford Academy. I hope that when you visit us, you can see this for yourself.
