The City Academy, Bristol (sometimes colloquially known as Bristol City Academy) is a non-selective academy in Bristol, England which opened in September 2003. It forms part of the Labour government's scheme for schools in deprived areas.
The school is located in the Easton area of Bristol and was formerly St George Community College. It is now housed in buildings within a £30 million complex. In 2010 the school had 1,230 students, of which some are in the post-16 age range. The school also provides adult education to about 1,200 people.
Both the University of the West of England and Bristol City Football Club are partners with the school and helped fund the school's buildings and equipment.
Each pupil is awarded positive or negative behavioural event logs at the teachers' discretion. These are added to the house point system thereby directly linking house success to classroom behaviour. This system is fully electronic and is dependent on the schools ability to afford sufficient computer access around the school.
The school, since receiving academy status has been, on average, improving its GCSE results year on year, and its 2010 5 A*-C's pass percentage was 83%.
The school receives around £12.5 million annually from private charitable donations, approximately three times the annual budget received by state schools of a comparable size.
