Bridge Academy came into being on 1 October 2013, having previously been four separate Pupil Referral Units, known locally as Personalised Educated Centres [PECs]. We now operate as one Academy across three geographically dispersed sites not three separate entities within one Academy. Strong links are maintained with referring mainstream schools. Data on attendance is fed back weekly to mainstream partners and academic progress data shared on a half termly basis. This is important particularly as reintegration is a primary focus of the work undertaken, particularly at Key Stage 3. Support in Bridge Academy is provided for up to 195 young people of secondary school age.Click here to read the full welcome
