Bradford Council has a statutory duty to ensure there are sufficient school places in the District to meet present and future demand.   

The demand for school places changes over time and predicting demand is a complex task involving a range if factors such as birth rates, housing growth and inward and outward migration.

For forecasting and planning purposes all secondary schools are organised into 8 planning areas of schools and are based on where children live and which schools they are likely to attend. For secondary schools this is likely to cover a much wider area across the District particularly for faith schools. Note however that this does not restrict parents making preferences for any school across the District or elsewhere.

Please note: The DfE has recently approved our proposals to amend the secondary school planning areas. Forecasts, Census and housing data is not yet available for the new planning areas and will be updated in the summer. The information below is the most recently submitted forecast data to the DfE and should still be used for planning unless advised otherwise. Please email sufficiency@bradford.gov.uk if you have any questions about this.

Additional information on the schools in the 8 planning areas is shown below:

For information on individual school forecasts, please email sufficiency@bradford.gov.uk to make the request.
