News Bishop of Leeds visits Bradford Forster Academy

The Rt Revd Nick Baines (former Bishop of Bradford and now Bishop of Leeds) will visit Bradford Forster Academy on Tuesday 19 April. He’ll observe an RE lesson, take part in Collective Worship and meet staff and students.

Bradford Forster Academy is a new 11-16 Church of England secondary school which opened last September – the third C of E secondary school in Bradford. It has begun with 150 year 7 students, and will work up to five year groups in 2019.

Tessa Mason, Chair of Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust, says, “We’re delighted to be able to show Bishop Nick how far the school has progressed in such a short time. We’re very pleased that it’s already become a central part of the community and we are grateful for the support of our parents and partners in helping us make a really excellent start.”

The Principal, Diane Pickering, says, “The vision for Bradford Forster Academy is to further raise the hopes and aspirations of students by generating self-belief and confidence. Year 7 are a talented group of young people willing to embrace the range of learning opportunities that are available to them, and our focus on high quality teaching has seen the students make good academic progress.”
