Bradford Girls’ Grammar School to Become a Free School in September 2013
The governors of Bradford Girls’ Grammar School are delighted to announce that their application to become a Free School in September 2013 has been approved to progress by the Secretary of State for Education.
As an all-through Free School Bradford Girls’ Grammar School will continue to provide a first class education for girls aged 11-18 and for boys and girls aged 4-11. In addition, the school will remain at the Squire Lane campus where nursery provision will be offered for children aged 3 and over.
Chair of Governors Neil Shaw said:
‘Since announcing our intention to apply for Free School status we have been overwhelmed by the level of response we have received from families expressing a firm interest in sending their children to the school should places become available. It is therefore particularly pleasing that from September 2013 the school will become accessible to all and will contribute towards widening choice at both primary and secondary school levels in Bradford.’
From September 2013 the school will be non-selective in its admissions procedures and its admissions policy will comply with the statutory admissions code.
Headmistress Kathryn Matthews said:
‘Bradford Girls welcomes the opportunity to work closely with students of all ability. The school’s traditional ethos, values and excellent education are amongst the most often stated reasons given by parents for their interest in the school as well as their overwhelming approval of its widening access. We will continue to combine these established principles with a contemporary education on behalf of every pupil at the school.’
