Open Events

Visit one of our open days or arrange an individual visit.

We firmly believe that the best way to experience our individual approach is to enjoy a personal visit, so we are delighted to welcome parents and prospective students to Bridgewater School all year round. Open events are held at various times throughout the school calendar and our first ever Virtual Open Day event, which launched on Saturday 7th November, enables online visitors to take a virtual tour around our inspirational grounds and facilities, hear from our Heads of Department and see just why children are so happy here.
