Bridge Academy Trust now comprises of eleven schools across Essex: 4 secondary and 7 primary phase schools.

Bridge Academy Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) with two core purposes of:
High quality continuity of every child’s journey through education from 3-19
A community and school-led school improvement system
The core purpose is achieved through an agreed set of guiding principles, values, non-negotiables and ‘golden threads’. First and foremost each school within the Trust is a place of learning, where young people (from 3 to 19):
ENJOY coming to school and learning experiences available to them;
Are ENRICHED with a wealth of opportunities inside and outside of lessons and the curriculum, so that all talents are identified and nurtured;
ACHIEVE high standards:
academically, in terms of examination results;
personally, through their respect for others and their environment;
socially, through their contribution to the life of the school and wider community
Bridge Academy Trust wants schools to work with each other in localities for the benefit of the local children and communities.
