Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website.
I hope what you see and read here reflects the vibrancy of the school community and the commitment that we have to attaining the very highest standards – as summed up in our school mission statement ‘Excellence for All’. This is not just words, but something we take very seriously, as seen in our 2017 results which are in the top 5% of schools nationally and the recent Ofsted inspection which rated the school as ‘Outstanding’. However, I am pleased to say that this is neither the limit of our ambitions or ceiling of our achievements, with the current progress of students on track to propel us to our target of being within the top 1% of schools in the country.
We also have many exciting non-academic successes and initiatives to celebrate. September saw us move in to our new building which, apart from being a far more pleasant working environment, has given everyone a lift and feeling that we are special and deserve the best. Meanwhile, our girls’ cricket team continue to excel appearing in the National Schools Final and winning award after award at local, regional, national and international prize-givings. Community engagement is also taken very seriously at the school, with the Sports Academy concept successfully underway through the Boxing Academy which opened in January 2017 and the Cricket Academy which opened in January 2018. Both are open to staff, students and the community in general, underlining our commitment to making BD3 the very best it can be.
These are certainly exciting times for Carlton Bolling, and we hope you will join us on our journey.
