Extra Curricular

At Bridgewater, we offer a wide array of subjects and extra-curricular activities, so that everyone has the chance to pursue passions, to participate, to be part of a group, to develop confident relationships but to be unique.

Students have the opportunity to compete at the highest level and represent their school in a range of team and individual sports. In 2019-20, our sporting successes have so far included: National ISA U16 Champions (Football), Salford KS4 Badminton Champions, Salford Netball League Champions, Salford Y9 Girls Rounders Champions, National ISA U16 Netball Finalists and Northern ISA Athletics Champions (various disciplines).

The recent addition of a new sports centre and drama studio, together with a 3G all-weather sports area, have enhanced our wide-ranging extra-curricular programme which continues to underpin the excellent personal development of all our pupils.
