About The City Academy Bristol

City Academy is a very diverse school with a high proportion of disadvantaged students (47% PPI, 21% SEND and 40% EAL) serving its community in the heart of Bristol. It was the first academy in the South West, opening on the site of the St George School in 2003.

Students often arrive in the academy with very low prior attainment, with the Year 11 for 2021 having an average scaled score of 95.2(national average =102.4), 73% of Year 9 entered the school with a reading age below their chronological age and 24% having a reading age of less than 9 years old on entry.

Due to its location in Bristol a large number of refugee and migrant students attend the academy; 26% of the academy are “in year “ admissions and this increases in the older year groups. The main catchment area is the Lawrence Hill ward which is one of the 10% most deprived in the country where over 50% of children under 16 are living in poverty. Latest data indicates that the academy is in the highest percentile nationally for deprivation, and has the highest percentage of pupils who are pupil premium in the City.

The academy has been on a rapid improvement journey in the last four years which has seen outcomes improve to be consistently above floor and P8 = +0.26 in 2018 and for the cohort of students being educated on site P8 = +0.15 in 2019. In 2018 PP students achieve as well as England state-funded non-disadvantaged pupils with P8=0.13 and over half a grade per subject per PP students compared to PP student progress nationally (-0.40). The vision for the academy is built and communicated around the following statement:

We exist to address inequality so that all students are equipped to make the choice to: go to university, choose their career and improve the world so that we make a positive contribution to society.
We value grit, honesty and team spirit so that we win in life.
We educate everyone in our local community.
