Breaking down barriers and building futures

Welcome from the Head

We are a small secondary education learning community on two sites in Bristol, one in Fishponds and the other in Brentry. 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.

September 2020 Coronavirus Update

Following Department for Education Covid guidelines, St Matthias Academy is now fully open for the business of education and learning. We are following strict health and safety guidance through our comprehensive risk assessments. Your child’s tutor will keep you up to date with Government advice and guidance.

The most important thing to us is the safety of your children, our staff and everyone’s families.
