Principal’s welcome

Welcome to the Bristol Futures Academy website.

Bristol Futures Academy is an Alternative Provision Free School providing education for 14 -16 year olds who have found mainstream schooling difficult for a variety of reasons. We opened in our newly refurbished school building in Barton Hill in September 2016, offering truly individualised learning packages and support programmes for every one of our students.

This is an exciting and innovative approach to supporting young people in our community. Although I have spent most of my career in mainstream education, I have also spent several years in alternative provision and special education working with young people who have a variety of needs. I am passionate about improving the futures of all young people and Bristol Futures Academy aims to improve the engagement, motivation, confidence and academic achievement of those who are unable to thrive in a mainstream school setting.

The students value the approachability and individual support of staff.
