Breaking down barriers and building futures

Welcome from the Head

We are a small education learning community on three sites in Bristol, one in Fishponds for KS3 & 4, one in Brentry for KS3 and the other in Easton for KS2. Pupils who are referred to our Academy often tell us that much of their experience of school and learning has left them feeling disillusioned and negative about education. This feeling does not last long.

We strive to ensure that the personalised learning journey of all our young people provides academic success and the confidence and skills to break thorough personal barriers. This means our pupils develop a positive attitude to learning which enables them to achieve and grow and succeed.

Supported by a dedicated, skilful and committed staff team our young people successfully move on from St Matthias Academy back into mainstream education, to specialist education or to college. We help and guide our pupils to take the next steps that are right for them.

    Enrichment afternoons mean there is a lot of work going on, building resilience, taking turns and being creative in Chess Club, Ju-jitsu and Crafts. And if you're in Year 11, some GCSE mocks!! @LearnatMAT #ThisisAP #alwayslearning
