UBS sponsoring Academies
July 2010

Bridge Academy Hackney 

UBS is the first financial firm to sponsor a new secondary school under the UK government’s ‘Academy’ program. We are making a financial contribution of £2m to the project – half of which is being provided by an anonymous private client – but expect to make an even more valuable long-term investment through the skills and commitment of employee volunteers. 

The Academy will educate 1,150 students when full and specialize in maths and music. When complete, it will be more than just a learning establishment: we hope the school will also provide a resource for the whole of the local community.
