Vision & Ethos


Carlton Bolling aspires to ‘Excellence for All’, providing the best teaching and learning in a caring and supportive environment, to prepare our students to be successful and rounded citizens in modern Britain.

We are dedicated to raising the aspirations, ambitions and expectations of our students so they can aim to attain to the very highest echelons of society, thereby breaking the link between economic background and educational attainment.

Standards of excellence are expected in all aspects of school life, including attendance, uniform, attitude and conduct, which will all make their contribution to them attaining the best educational outcomes. The 2017 results were, once again, the best in the history of the school; testament to the dedication of students, staff and all stakeholders of the school. 

Our aim is to continue building upon this success and, with our ‘Habits of Excellence’ embedded throughout the school, we can be confident and proud that Carlton Bolling maintains its position as a beacon of excellence both within the City of Bradford and beyond.
