About Merchants' Academy

Venturers Trust is a dynamic and focused multi-academy trust based in Bristol, formed in September 2017 through the merger of CGS Trust and Merchants’ Academy Trust. The Trust is responsible for eight academies, 3,500 pupils and 700 staff with a commitment to making a significant and lifelong difference to the lives of young people from some of Bristol’s most disadvantaged communities.  
The Trust is currently made up of five primary schools: Bannerman Road Community Academy, Barton Hill Academy, Fairlawn Primary School, The Dolphin School and The Kingfisher School; the all-age Merchants’ Academy; Colston’s Girls’ School for girls aged 11-16, located alongside its sixth form, V6, for girls and boys; and Venturers’ Academy, the first state-funded school in Bristol for students aged 4-16 diagnosed with Autism and with an EHCP. Our academies are happy, vibrant and exciting places to learn and work and are led by a team of talented, morally driven and committed Principals.

The Trust is sponsored by the Society of Merchant Venturers and the University of Bristol.
The Society of Merchant Venturers (SMV) is a philanthropic organisation that works with and supports people and communities from the wider Bristol area through education, care for older people, charitable giving and social enterprise.  In education, SMV’s simple but highly ambitious vision is to transform the life-chances of students from the richly diverse set of schools within Venturers Trust, both during their educational journey and beyond.  The Society’s expertise in education spans more than four centuries and today, the commitment is practical as well as financial, with many of its members taking active roles in the governance of Venturers Trust and the wide range of schools within the Trust.  SMV firmly believes there is nothing more important to the health of our communities than outstanding education and training in life skills for young people. 
The University of Bristol ranks as one of the top 10 universities in the United Kingdom. It is actively involved in the governance of our schools. The university offers support in areas such as curriculum development, subject expertise, higher degree and research opportunities for staff at Venturers Trust. It also offers student mentoring and an innovative and inclusive programme for students as part of the university’s commitment to widening participation and access to higher education. These activities include extensive support and opportunities for our Sixth Forms including scholarships, preferential offers of grades to gain a place, with the additional possibility of bursaries to support undergraduate degree studies.  
Both sponsors seek to ensure that all our young people receive a truly inspiring education. Their hands-on support, challenge and expertise are greatly valued.
