Thank you for visiting Fishponds Church of England Academy's website. We hope you enjoy browsing.
We are a large and exciting inner city Church of England Primary School and Nursery in the vibrant city of Bristol. We are a rich and diverse community, with many different religions, cultures and languages and it is this diversity that complements and enriches our inclusive ethos. Children and families of all faiths and of none, and of all backgrounds are welcomed equally. We work closely with families and the community as partners in a child’s education to enhance outcomes together and firmly believe in the education of the ‘whole child’ . Progress and achievements in many areas are valued and celebrated, underpinned by good behaviour and our strong pastoral support by our fantastic staff, which enables children to feel safe and secure.
The school was formed originally in September 2000 following the amalgamation of two Church of England schools in Fishponds, Bristol and became St Matthias and Dr Bell's CE VA Primary School. In September 2012 we became an Academy, as part of the Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust. Our name of Fishponds Church of England Academy, places us as a school in the heart of the community.
We have close links with the two parishes of St Mary’s, Fishponds and All Saint’s, Fishponds. Clergy and members of both congregations play an active part in the life of the school and children visit the churches regularly.
We would love you to visit our school and guarantee a warm welcome. We believe you will be impressed by our high expectations, our plans for the future and our motivated and well behaved pupils. We look forward to meeting you soon.
Mrs Debbie Coker, Principal
