Making an application

Parents with children wishing to be considered for the Prep School are invited to make an appointment with the Head of Prep for a personal tour of the school together with an assessment of literacy and reading ability, plus competency in maths. Children are then able to spend an extended period of time with the class and class teacher to gain a real feeling for life at Bridgewater*

*Subject to restrictions.

To discuss an in-year place or to make an appointment for a personal tour, please contact Mrs Andrea Johnson on johnsona@bwslive.co.uk who will arrange a mutually convenient appointment date with the Head of Prep.

Whole School Open Events

We warmly invite parents and prospective students to visit us to gain a real feeling for life at Bridgewater.
