Sat 15 Feb - Sun 8 Nov Educating Bradford


Since the famous Education Act of 1870, Bradford has been a national pioneer in education and child development.

Educating Bradford is a family friendly exhibition that:

· celebrates 150 years of education in Bradford, from 1870 to the present day;

· shows how modern teaching methods are still influenced by 19th and 20th century educational and child healthcare reforms;

· charts the development of adult learning; recognition that an educated workforce helped support the development of Bradford as an international powerhouse.

This is an evolving exhibition that, like a child, will develop and grow throughout the year.

This exhibition is inspired by the landmark book Education in Bradford 1870-1970 which provided a detailed description and celebration of learning in the city. 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of its publication.
