Further information about our recent Ofsted inspection can be found in this message from the Principal.
Welcome to our website. As you may be aware, the Academy is now in its fourth year, and since opening has undergone considerable change and enjoyed huge success.
In terms of results, our headline figures have improved considerably. The summer 2012 outcomes showed 97% of students achieving 5 or more GCSEs at grades A*-C. These were our best results yet and were the second highest in the City of Bristol. More importantly they were indicative of the all-round improvements that have been consistently enjoyed at our academy; a massive 54% increase since the Academy opened.
These results represent another step on our road to becoming an outstanding academy. When Ofsted carried out its full inspection in May 2012, it found many elements worthy of praise in forming its ‘Good’ judgement, details of which are available elsewhere via this website. Most importantly, however, the inspectors were able to outline the adjustments needed to make the relatively short step from Good to Outstanding, and achieving this is an aim shared by our ambitious team.
Bristol Met is currently an extremely exciting place to be, to learn and to work, where high achievement is becoming a habit and high expectations and aspirations the norm. Together with our partners in the Cabot Learning Federation, we are making a positive difference to our students’ lives.
Ultimately it is of course the mood and the feel of a school that creates a good fit between students, parents, and the learning environment. This can only be experienced personally and with this in mind, I would like to encourage you to come and visit us to sample the atmosphere at Bristol Met for yourself.
