A Bristol principal has been recognised as one of the "best of Britain" by a national education group.

David Carter, who heads the Cabot Learning Federation, has been named one of 18 Education Reformers of the Year.

He said the award, from the Education Foundation, was an "huge honour" for both him and his colleagues.

Mr Carter's award honoured his "collaboration across structures of schools, innovation in pedagogy and improving achievement".

The Cabot Learning Federation now has 10 academies, six secondary schools and four primary schools in Bristol, Bath and Weston-super-Mare.
