School profile

Belle Vue Girls' Academy

Belle Vue Girls' Academy is the lead academy for the School Direct programme of the Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust (BDAT). The academy offers the outstanding quality of education which ensures that, on average, every girl makes nearly two-thirds of a grade better progress in every single subject at GCSE, when compared with all students nationally. The Academy is in the top five schools in Bradford and is consistently one of the top 15% schools in the whole country. Although academic achievement is incredibly important, this is not our only focus. A broad and balanced curriculum and a wide range of extra curricular activities ensure that all girls have the opportunities to participate and excel in all areas - art, drama, sport, public speaking and music to name just a few.
