Our Development Programme

In 1950, a group of parents wanted to find an alternative to the schools in the area, believing that every child deserved access to the best education possible. Out of this shared vision, Bridgewater School was born.

Today, almost seventy years later, this aspiration remains at the heart of everything we do.

Thinking ahead, to help our students to get ahead

At Bridgewater School we provide a balance of outstanding tradition and pioneering modernity which achieves consistently exceptional results both in and out of the classroom. Pupils continue to benefit from our incredibly high teaching standards and the wealth of enrichment opportunities offered. Ongoing investment in our buildings and facilities, such as the new drama studio and sports centre, Prep library and dedicated Early Years unit, is designed to enhance this experience.

We are committed to a programme of continuous development and improvement, dedicated to offering facilities and opportunities that enhance and enrich the experience of every child, and the school governors, staff and pupils all share a real sense of excitement about both our recent accomplishments and Bridgewater’s future.

Investing in our own students

Through our own bursary support scheme, currently funded solely through school income, we are able to give talented children the chance to achieve their full potential, regardless of circumstance and provide financial assistance to around one hundred pupils every year.

However, with assistance and support from potential donors through our Bursary Appeal, we hope to more than double this number and open the doors of opportunity to many other deserving young individuals.
