Welcome from the Chair of Governors
Our vision is for The Bridge Academy to be an exceptional place where every student can make the most of their talents and abilities.
We have very high aims for the Academy and our students. We are committed to creating an inspiring culture of ambition, achievement and learning that will lead to the highest possible standards. We aim to broaden our student’s horizons and motivate them to see the exciting possibilities within the wider worlds of work and higher education as they develop into the citizens of tomorrow.
Our Mathematics and Music specialisms give our students a wide range of fantastic opportunities within a broad and bold curriculum and these opportunities don’t stop at the end of the Academy Day. Students will take part in a variety of enrichment and extension activities, clubs and societies.
The Bridge Academy is home to a team of highly committed and talented staff who make learning stimulating and enjoyable. Our Principal, Stephen Foster, provides exceptional and exciting leadership to the Academy and is a wonderful role model for our students.
The Academy itself occupies a superb, purpose-built building with outstanding facilities on a canalside site, and it is integral to the Academy’s vision that we are at the heart of the community we serve.
As the Chair of Governors, I am excited by the opportunity to work with the whole community to realise our ambition for The Bridge Academy. The Academy’s sponsor UBS, the city financial firm, has supported education in Hackney for more than 15 years. The Bridge Academy represents its biggest, single long-term commitment as part of a wider drive to raise educational standards in Hackney.
UBS staff volunteers their time at the Academy and work with students and staff on a wide range of activities including Maths and English intervention, the Maths and Music specialisms and links to some of London’s most prestigious organisations.
We hope you have the opportunity to read our prospectus and we look forward to meeting many of you as you make choices about a secondary school and Sixth Form for your child for the next Academic Year.
