Principal’s welcome

Meet Caroline Down, the Bristol Futures Academy Principal…

Welcome to the Bristol Futures Academy website.

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

This is a truly exciting and innovative approach to supporting young people in our community. Having worked in Easton for almost 20 years I am committed to improving the futures of all young people and Bristol Futures Academy will improve the engagement, motivation, confidence and academic achievement of those who are unable to thrive in a mainstream school setting.

Please do check out the news section for updates on our progress, and I hope you will join us at one of our events to find out more.
