​The Priestley Academy Trust is a group of six schools located in Bradford, West Yorkshire.​

The Trust was formed to create a local solution in providing outstanding education and to enable our schools to work together to increase our capacity for embedding and sustaining real school improvement for the benefit of our learners.


​The Priestley Academy Trust’s vision is to offer an outstanding, transformational learning experience for each student with a strong emphasis on academic excellence, character development and public service.​


​Our mission is to develop all our students as both academic and well rounded, characterful young people, equipped with the understanding, attitudes, skills and behaviours necessary to succeed in life. We will strive to ensure they are prepared to succeed in higher education, employment, entrepreneurship and their family and community life.


Our ethos is defined by a values based approach to education where respect for human dignity is paramount. Values are important principles that drive behaviour. They influence our attitudes and actions and become our framework for living.

They affect our sense of self and our relationship with others. Students need to learn about values and how people react to them, so that they are equipped with invaluable social skills and emotional intelligence.






Based on having respect for all, achieving academic excellence within a disciplined learning environment, where high expectations are the norm and students are supported to reach their potential.
