Stephenson (MK) Trust is an organisation committed to supporting young people who are at risk of exclusion from mainstream secondary provision (Bridge Academy) and specialist secondary provision for students with Social Emotional and Mental Health needs (Stephenson Academy). We provide inclusive education for young people with a range of educational and social needs in order to maximise and improve their life chances.

Bridge Academy is a two campus Alternative Provision, part of Stephenson (MK) Trust where we are committed to building a strong foundation within our workforce in order to improve the life chances of each young person within our Academy. Our age range is 11-18 and we have an embedded induction programme and Initial Teacher Training scheme, as well as development within the Trust for support staff as well as teachers. Wellbeing is a high priority for us, for staff and students alike. In the autumn term we expect that Milton Keynes Primary Pupil Referral Unit will join the Trust and are currently in negotiation with the DfE around the academisation process.

Stephenson Academy currently provides education for students aged between 11 and 16 years. We are the local secondary SEN provision for students with social emotional and mental health needs. We pride ourselves on delivering a high quality curriculum, truly individualised to meet the needs of our students, ensuring successful outcomes for all. From September we will extend our age range to include children aged 9-11, the upper end of primary. We are currently finalising a £2m build programme with Milton Keynes Local Authority to facilitate this development, this will also lead to a significant increase in student numbers
