Bradford Grammar School (BGS) has appointed a new Deputy Headmaster from among its esteemed staff.

Jed Boardman has worked at Bradford Grammar School for 20 years and will take on his role in the new year.

Mr Boardman began his career as a police officer in Manchester before moving into teaching. He taught physics at St Peter’s School, in York, for three years before becoming Head of Physics at Fulneck School, in Pudsey, where he stayed for five years. He joined BGS 20 years ago and held various positions including Head of Year 7, Year 10 and Year 11 and Head of Physics.

He said of his new role: “I’m delighted to take up this privileged position, BGS is a great place to work. It provides a world class education for its students and all the staff both teaching and non-teaching are a first class team. The teachers are specialists in their fields and are passionate about the art of teaching.

“The students are fantastic, they are academically and emotionally intelligent and have a genuine thirst for knowledge which is coupled with a desire to succeed. A BGS education provides its students with so many opportunities to develop their softer skills which are so essential for success in life.”

Dr Simon Hinchliffe, Headmaster at the school, said: “Jed is a terrific teacher and a warm and principled human being. He cares deeply about the students and colleagues at BGS and I have no doubt that he will make a valued contribution to the future direction and the success of our remarkable school.”

BGS was founded in 1548 and granted its Charter by King Charles II in 1662. It has enjoyed outstanding exam results this year with 75pc of its students securing a place at a Russell Group university. It was ranked top three in the North by The Sunday Times for 2019 and named Northern Independent School of the Year 2018.

Mr Boardman replaces Louis d’Arcy who has left to become Headmaster at St Bede’s College in Manchester.

“I’m delighted to take up this privileged position, BGS is a great place to work. It provides a world class education for its students and all the staff both teaching and non-teaching are a first class team. The teachers are specialists in their fields and are passionate about the art of teaching.

The students are fantastic, they are academically and emotionally intelligent and have a genuine thirst for knowledge which is coupled with a desire to succeed. A BGS education provides its students with so many opportunities to develop their softer skills which are so essential for success in life.”
