Bridge Academy


Welcome to the Alumni pages for former students of The Bridge Academy, Hackney.

We want to keep in touch with our Alumni. We are interested in what you are doing and hope that many of you will come back and inspire our students.

Please register at bridgeacademyalumni.com - the aim is to build a vibrant and useful Bridge community network, which provides former and current Bridge students with support and advice, with a focus on the world of work. With Covid-19 this feels even more relevant now.

  • Connect – network with other Bridge alumni - see what they are up to
  • Give back – support each other and current Bridge students
  • Advance – use our careers resources, workshops and mentor support
  • Expand – leverage your Bridge network, talk to other alumni who know your university or the industry you are interested in 

Alumni Events:

Bridge Alumni have been invited to careers events, CV and LinkedIn workshops and the annual leaver event to pick up certificates.

We are now planning activities for 2021, if you have any ideas you would like to contribute, please email us at alumni@bridgeacademy.hackney.sch.uk.

Interested in having a UBS Mentor, or reconnecting with your mentor? Want some help preparing for a job interview. If you have a CV that you would like to have reviewed, or would like some interview practice, or with preparing for an assessment centre, join bridgeacademyalumni.com and we will try and help you.


We hold regular Career Insight Events, recent events have focused on careers in the media, creative industries, communications and marketing, medicine, healthcare, sport, fitness and well-being, legal careers, careers in STEM subjects - Science, Mathematics, Technology Engineering and Mathematics, business, finance and accountancy.

The 'Meet the Expert' sessions are designed to help current students and Bridge Alumni to find out about the types of jobs that are available, the skills and qualities that it takes to succeed, and the various career pathways into the industries including graduate and apprenticeship routes.

The Insight Evenings are finished for 2019/20 and are now being planned for 2020/21.
