Secondary school of the year

Secondary school of the year

Carlton Bolling, located in one of the most deprived communities in Bradford, was once described as “arguably the most broken in Britain” due to its association with the Trojan Horse scandal. However, it has since turned its fortunes around, and was rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted just two years after being put in special measures.

The school has been entirely rebuilt over the past few years, and awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark for offering unique work experience, access to peer support and cultural opportunities to take pupils beyond the local community.
