Welcome to The Bridge Academy.
We are a school with a simple mission: We aim to ensure that all our students go on to University or a high quality equivalent, thrive in their chosen field and live a great life. In order to achieve these ambitious goals, everything we do at the Bridge is driven by our six core values:
Bravery: We meet our fears head on. We embrace challenges in order to thrive
Respect: We value everyone equally. We treat others as we would wish to be treated
Integrity: We do the right thing, even if no one is watching
Drive: We are determined to succeed. We never stop trying to get better.
Grit: We never give up, even when things get tough
Excellence: We go above and beyond, without excuses, to achieve the best.
The Academy’s partner, UBS, the city financial firm, has supported education in Hackney for more than 15 years and The Bridge Academy represents its biggest single, long-term commitment as part of a wider drive to raise educational standards in Hackney. The scale of the partnership with UBS is unique in education, and offers our students amazing additional opportunities in addition to parallel the expertise and passion for learning of the Academy staff.
As a result, The Bridge Academy is an academic, inclusive and inspirational environment where innovative thinking and creativity are encouraged and aspirations are raised. It is a hugely exciting place to work and study in, and one that I am extremely proud to be a part of.
I hope that this website will give you a taste of what sets us apart as an Academy, and the sense of pride that we have here in all we achieve, both individually and as a community.
