David Carter, Executive Principal of the Cabot Learning Federation in Kingswood, has been included in the much coveted list of 'Education Reformers of the Year 2012.'

This national award has been issued by "The Education Foundation" the UK's first cross sector education think tank. The award is to recognise the achievements of practitioners and system leaders like David who have brought about change to their organisations and who inspire many more beyond in other sectors.

The Education Foundation are acutely aware that the work of people across the system often goes unrecognised and it is practitioners who are forging and consolidating change right across the UK.

The Education Foundation wanted to recognise practitioners and leaders in schools, colleges and universities that they feel have made the biggest impact in the sector this year.

The Cabot Learning Federation now has 10 academies, six secondary and four primaries in Bristol, Bath and Weston-super-Mare. The work David has led in these communities is transforming education for the children that attend CLF academies. Wallscourt Farm Academy will open in September 2013 adding another primary to the CLF family, as the Federation goes from strength to strength.

Mr Carter said: "This is a huge honour for me personally but also for all of my colleagues who work so hard to make the federation and our academies a success. It is very humbling to see the other names and organisations who have been recognised and to think that others have such a regard for the Cabot Learning Federation."

Ty Goddard, Co-founder of the Education Foundation said: "The Education Reformers of the Year 2012 list celebrates those looking at ways of fundamentally changing the way education and learning is being delivered in their communities. There are education reformers in every school, college and university across the country who are trying new ways to teach and motivate young people. Often too, those reformers look beyond old structures and create new partnerships better able to serve their vision. They are the best of Britain."
