Bradford School scoops top teaching ‘Oscar’

A school in one of the most deprived areas of Bradford has been honoured in a prestigious national awards ceremony.

Back in 2014 Carlton Bolling College was dubbed ‘the most broken school in Britain’ and put into special measures by inspectorate Ofsted.

However, with a new governing body in place, the Undercliffe school has gone from strength to strength in the last few years

It gained an Ofsted rating of ‘outstanding’ in 2017 and was awarded ‘World Class Schools’ status the following year.

This week Carlton Bolling’s improvement journey was further recognised at the Pearson National Teaching Awards – dubbed the ‘Oscars’ of the teaching world – when it was named as Secondary School of the Year in the Making a Difference Category.

The judges said that as well as outstanding academic outcomes, the school provided a breadth of curriculum and enrichment opportunities for its predominantly ethnic minority students, preparing them for modern British life whilst fostering close links with the community.

The Pearson National Teaching Awards is an annual celebration of exceptional teachers, founded in 1998 by Lord Puttnam to recognise the life-changing impact an inspirational teacher can have on the lives of the young people they teach.


You can find out more and see the award presentation as it happened at 17.30pm this Saturday (26th October) on BBC 2 or on catch-up shortly after the broadcast here.
