Welcome to Fishponds CE Academy

Welcome to Fishponds CE Academy where our aim is for all children to flourish both academically and emotionally. We provide holistic care for our pupils with an emphasis on emotional literacy and nurture.

Our school reflects the diversity and vibrancy of our local community. All our children are encouraged and empowered to be their very best and our recent inspection reports demonstrate that. Whilst at Fishponds CE Academy, your child will access a broad curriculum which will prepare them for their place on the world stage of their future. With a dedicated focus on building children's confidence we provide them with the skills and vocabulary to become articulate advocates for change on matters such as equality and the environment.

We have a specialist sports provision and dedicated Spanish and Music programmes. We are proud to be the first Bristol school selected for the highly regarded Global Schools Programme.

Most of all, we are a school with love at its heart!
