About Us

Horton Grange Primary School is situated in central Bradford. It is significantly larger than most 2-11 primary schools with 750 pupils currently on role. The vast majority of the pupils speak English as an additional language and the proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those supported through pupil premium, is higher than the national average. The proportion of children with special educational needs is above average. The number of children who enter and leave the school at times other than at the start and end of the year is very high in comparison to national data.

In 2006 the school was judged to be inadequate and from that moment the journey from Special Measures had begun. The appointment of a consultant head teacher began the process and then in September 2007 the journey was further supported with the permanent appointment of an experienced head teacher from an outstanding school. Duncan Jacques was the school’s fifth head teacher in a short period of time and was brought in to raise standards which had been historically low.
