North Star 240°

Reshaping the Future

Who We Are

Based in North Bristol, North Star 240° is a secondary school that caters for pupils aged 11-16 with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs and associated learning difficulties. Pupils who have difficulties with their emotional and social development may have limited social skills and find it difficult to make and sustain healthy relationships.



At North Star Academy Trust, we take safeguarding very seriously.  Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everybody’s responsibility and it involves:


Protecting children from maltreatment;


Preventing impairment of children’s health or development;


Ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
