Welcome to Prep

Finding the perfect learning environment for your child is as much about instinct as educational accomplishment. When you find the right school, it just instinctively feels right. Which is exactly the way you will feel when you experience the friendly and nurturing atmosphere at Bridgewater Preparatory Department.

Success and happiness go hand in hand.

When seen through a young person’s eyes, the world is a place of excitement and wonder. It shines brightly with a light that will illuminate the rest of their lives. We see it that way too. We give children the learning tools and the space they need to discover the world their way, allowing them to flourish as they develop their individual abilities.

We share your ambition for your children. We are proud of their achievements. But like you, we are equally focused on their happiness; it is a pleasure to see them grow into true individuals, guided and enthused by our committed and supremely qualified staff.

Not just life changing. But life transforming.

Our exceptional Early Years team provide the essential building blocks necessary to ensure our Key Stage 1 and 2 staff can give children the creative and academic skills needed to transform their life journey.

All of our staff have the talent, insight, and knowledge to imbue every moment of achievement with true enjoyment. Because what we care about the most, is giving your child the opportunity to flourish in a naturally friendly environment. And as you will discover from your first visit onwards, that is a wonderful feeling.

Call 0161 794 1463 or email admin@bwslive.co.uk to arrange your appointment today and realise our potential to unlock their potential.

For us, achievement means so much more when it is coupled with true enjoyment.
