Rated by Ofsted as "Good" in February 2019
Welcome to Bridge Academy’s website, I hope you find all the information you need on these pages. There are links to each of our sites:
- Bridge Academy South- our Key Stage 3 provision, now also providing nurture classes for year 6;
- Bridge Academy Central – our Key Stage 4 provision;
- Bridge Academy West – our medical and mental health provision; and
- Stephenson Trust Post 16 Centre, which caters for all Post 16 students within the Trust.
I am proud to be the new Head of School for Bridge Academy, from October 1st 2020. Having worked for Stephenson (MK) Trust since January 2017, I have had the privilege of seeing many young lives turned around, from a place where mainstream education was not working for them, to gaining qualifications and in many cases, returning to mainstream to continue their educational journey.
Our mission to ‘Build Brighter Futures’ has never felt more important than the difficult times we are living through. Bridge Academy, as part of Stephenson (MK) Trust, has access to a large and experienced therapeutic team. We are actively training our staff to be trauma informed in their practices. Holisitic education is very important to us as a team; we need to address the reasons why our young people struggled in mainstream, in order to turn over the stones and make their pathway to adulthood smoother.
You will be able to find more information on our curriculum and policies within the website. Should you require further information, please feel free to contact me.
