Bridgewater Colours introduced for Seniors

It gives us immense pleasure to introduce ‘Bridgewater Colours’, an award programme for the new academic year which acknowledges excellence, commitment and the positive representation of Bridgewater School within the local and wider community.

As a school we firmly believe in nurturing the holistic development of our students. While we pride ourselves on our exam success, we understand the importance of encouraging participation in extra-curricular activities and celebrating achievements beyond the classroom. These awards aim to do just that by honouring those students who have consistently demonstrated exceptional dedication and effort in various areas of school life.

Bridgewater Colours is designed to be fully inclusive and celebrate success across interests and disciplines, fostering a sense of pride and achievement among our student body and providing opportunities for pupils to thrive and flourish in different areas of interest. Colours will be awarded to students who have given up their own time to consistently represent our school externally in at least three areas that enrich the school community. These include such activities as the Music Showcase, Maths Challenge, school productions, chess tournaments, sports teams, Debate Challenge, ISA competitions and events, and voluntary fundraising efforts.

Colours will be awarded as follows:

Half Colours – Students at the end of Year 9 who have met the criteria through Key Stage 3

Full Colours – Students at the end of Year 11 who have continued to meet the criteria throughout Key Stages 3 and 4. (For students joining in Year 10, Half Colours may be awarded at the end of Year 11, subject to meeting the criteria described above and Full Colours for those that go above and beyond).

Half Colours and Full Colours can still be achieved by students joining Bridgewater after Year 7, providing they meet the required criteria in each subsequent year.

Throughout the academic year our dedicated staff members will closely observe and evaluate the performances, attitudes and commitment of our students. These awards will therefore not only highlight their individual achievements but also acknowledge their positive influence on the school community.

As a student, you are the most amazing discovery you will ever make.
