Welcome to Early Years

In many ways, our early years are some of the most important in our lives. They can start to shape and define both who we are and our view of the world. That is why at Bridgewater School, we like to give young individuals an early idea of how inspiring and enjoyable school life can be.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is an integral part of the Prep Department; many of our most successful students began their academic journey here, developing an early sense of self in a safe, friendly place that gives them the space to express themselves for the very first time.

 

Bridgewater School early years fun

Outstanding in every way, every day.

The EYFS encompasses those children aged 3 to 5 years in Kindergarten and Reception Classes. We are a one form intake, ensuring consistently high teaching standards and a happy continuity as pupils progress through to our Prep School.

Your child will be able to form early friendships and find out about the world of learning in an environment which the Independent Schools Inspectorate Service has regularly assessed as ‘Outstanding’.

A professional approach to play and learning.

Our Early Years Team Leader is a qualified Early Years Teacher and Early Years Professional who oversees the smooth transition from home to school and then on to Key Stage 1.

Under her caring and expert tutelage, our highly successful Kindergarten and Reception Classes are not only a happy place for our very youngest pupils, but welcoming for families too.

Call 0161 794 1463 or email admin@bwslive.co.uk today to arrange a Taster Session for you and your child, and discover an altogether more successful approach to early learning.

I am constantly amazed by what they have learnt at such an early age. The quality of teaching and learning is superb.
