Olive Secondary School is unique in the model of education it offers to its students and the community. It is novel to Bradford and in fact Britain.
The School was founded in 2005 in recognition of the need for the provision of a broad system of educational excellence; one that would meet the demands of parents who want their children to be equipped with the necessary skills and moral qualities to prepare them for tomorrow's world.
At the time of our humble beginnings we rented a detached property which consisted of four classrooms in terms of individuals we had six staff members and forty male students in Yrs 7 and 8. Now we have a purpose-built building with around twenty classrooms including specialist laboratories and ICT Suites; in terms of (wo)manpower we now have over fifty staff members specialising in various subjects and in excess of three hundred male and female students across Yrs 7 to 13.
Our aim is to inculcate and nurture within the students, staff, parents and the wider community the need for;
1- Being healthy by enjoying physical, mental and spiritual health and living in a healthy environment;
2- Staying Safe by protecting from harm, mental and spiritual health and living in a healthy environment;
3- Enjoying and Achieving by getting the most from this life and developing skills for adulthood;
4- Making a Positive Contribution by being involved with the community and society and not engaging in anti-social or offending behaviour;
5- Economic Well-Being by not being prevented to achieve their full potential in life due to economic disadvantage.
