A warm welcome to Bradford District PRU
District PRU was established in 2008 as a virtual school commissioning a range of local Independent Schools and Alternative Providers over 20 different sites for students who were unable to continue to access mainstream education. I am proud to have been appointed in April 2016 to lead on moving the school forward by occupying refurbished premises at Anerely St and we currently work in partnership with six other provisions in the City.
District PRU has been on a transformational journey over the last year, continuing to further develop the new school in adding much needed additional facilities. In changing from a virtual provision to a Vocational Centre combined with a bespoke traditional core curriculum; the shared vision for all stakeholders is to rapidly increase the life chances of students referred to the school. The response to improve alternative provision has led immediately to significantly increased participation and attainment for all students over recent years.
