Academy Ethos & Vision

Snowdon Village is the term used to describe a family of schools that sit within the Cabot Learning Federation. We currently have 4 schools namely, The Nest, Engage, Bristol Futures Academy and City School.

Our schools are alternative provisions and we provide education to students (ages 4 – 16) who have been excluded from mainstream schools or who have specific learning needs which mean they find it difficult to cope in a mainstream setting.

The Snowdon Village Values are:

  • Positivity
  • Equity
  • Resilience
  • Love

We are a trauma informed school and having an awareness and understanding of trauma sits at the heart of everything we do.

Mission Statement

Snowdon Village empowers the next generation of young people by providing a platform which creates opportunities for their life long journey. We value and promote creativity and teach transferable life skills, which are bespoke to meet the needs of the young people we work with. The holistic education we provide helps our young people develop and transition through the Village and beyond.

We have high expectations for all our students and seek to guide our individual young people on their chosen path towards their peak potential.

Curriculum Intent

We aim to provide an innovative and creative curriculum which will engage and empower young people to be confident learners who have a strong sense of belonging.

Our curriculum will challenge self-doubt and negative preconceptions by carefully scaffolding the learning to meet all individual needs; enabling our students to have a positive and sustainable future.
