Welcome from the Headmistress

Bridgewater is a school for families. We are a co-educational independent school for children aged between 3 and 18 years and our educational provision is inclusive, challenging, academically stimulating and pastorally supportive.

We truly believe in a holistic approach to education and offer an extensive range of opportunities in academic work and in the form of extra-curricular experiences beyond the classroom. Our school ethos aims to produce individuals who are well-rounded and able to meet the challenges of life in the 21st century and we feel that personal development is greatly enhanced by the challenge of a wide-ranging extra-curricular programme across all sections of the school.

As a 3-18 school on a single site, we work harmoniously across our full age range supporting your child in their first steps into our outstanding Early Years’ section and throughout their learning journey up to university entrance after their studies in the Sixth Form. Our community provides recognition of the individual needs of each child and student whilst still ensuring that the collective needs of teams, choirs, productions and all the other facets of a vibrant school community are also well promoted. We want our pupils to celebrate and take pride in personal, individual and group achievement.

We are a reflective school striving for continuous improvement in and out of the classroom and in the facilities that we offer. We encourage our pupils to be equally reflective, mutually respective, considerate, thoughtful and ambitious. We expect the highest academic standards and provide a stimulating learning experience for all our children and students.

While the website should give you a flavour of our wonderful school, only a visit can give you a real sense of the welcoming atmosphere, positive relationships between staff and pupils and our purposeful approach to learning. We strongly encourage you to come and see us, either on one of our open days or on a bespoke individual tour of the school where you can experience our unique atmosphere for yourself and become part of our exciting future!
