Bristol Metropolitan Academy is moving into its ninth year and has gone from strength to strength since opening.
It was well documented in 2014 that our results were the third highest in the country for progress, and it was right that this exceptional achievement on the part of students and staff was recognised. It will interest readers to know that following on from this spectacular success Bristol Met has continued to have outstanding progress scores. In 2016, based on progress made by students, Bristol Met was the best choice of school in the city to educate a secondary aged child, securing the best ‘Progress 8’results. In 2017 we secured 2nd place in the city and have our sights set firmly on the top spot again. Our exceptional achievements are now not just a case of one year of great results, but a consistent picture.
When Ofsted visited the Academy in January 2017 we secured ‘Outstanding’ judgements in two of the four categories, with solid ‘Good’ judgements in the other two areas. There were very few areas identified for us to work on; however, we never settle and are never complacent and these areas form the basis of our ongoing improvement planning.
Bristol Met is characterised by energy, enthusiasm and a strong sense of community; we wear our uniform with pride and share a set of core values, The Metropolitan Way, which underpin all that we do. The years at school are few and precious, and it is important that students at Bristol Met have a strong sense of belonging and a belief in their right and their ability to achieve highly. Our staff are dedicated to ensuring that every student’s needs are met within and beyond lessons, and we are committed to working effectively with our students and their parents to achieve this goal. Together with our partners in the Cabot Learning Federation, we are making a positive difference to our students’ lives.

Our Academy is part of the Cabot Learning Federation and benefits from all the advantages of being part of a group of academies.
Children visit other academies for sports and other events such as language or science activities. Students from the secondary academies visit us for to perform drama and take part in sports activities, as well as lead some of them. We share good practice between academies and teachers from all academies in the Federation visit the other academies for professional development.
Here at the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF), we like to celebrate. We celebrate exam results, collaboration, achievement, innovations and new ideas; we celebrate the determination of our students; we celebrate the amazing role played by staff; and we celebrate the efforts and successes of our team.
We celebrate the small achievements and the big. But far from being self-congratulatory, we are always looking to learn, to improve education and to make a positive difference for students and their families. And that's where you come in.
At the CLF, we value your experience, skills, expertise and ideas. We expect you to help us to be the very best education provider, and in return we will listen and support you to take your career in whichever direction you choose.
With the CLF you can be a leader, find solutions, become an expert, close the gaps and inspire and influence. The range of roles and opportunities in the CLF is as diverse as the communities we serve.
Or you may simply want to fulfil your defined role to the very best of your abilities.
Whatever our individual aspirations, together we make education real every day, in a very individual sense for each student. We learn each day from colleagues, students, families and local communities and we embrace our values and take pride in our work.
The Cabot Learning Federation is a partnership of schools that is sponsored by Rolls Royce PLC and The University of the West of England (UWE). It now sponsors twelve academies in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Weston super Mare and Bath. This means that we are responsible and accountable for the education of 5600 students between the ages of 3 and 19 and for the employment and support of over 1200 staff.
Our vision is based upon our mission of "collaboration for outstanding achievement" and the work that is now shared between our schools at senior and middle leadership level, teachers and support staff underpins this every day. All of our staff are employed by the CLF and this enables us to give colleagues the opportunity to work in more than one academy either for their own development or because the skills that they have are needed by more than one of our schools.
The Cabot Learning Federation enters 2015 with a new CEO, Steve Taylor. Steve has played a major part in the development of the federation, both as Principal of Bristol Metropolitan Academy and Executive Principal of the CLF: We are moving forward into the next era with confidence, building on the success of our 3-19 collaboration and continuing to change the face of learning and community cohesion for the areas in which our academies are located.
