A big warm welcome to our website
Welcome to Bridgeway School, where our teaching and support staff enthuse passion and are driven to inspire and motivate pupils so that they are equipped with skills and experiences to help them to achieve their goals and ultimately reach their full potential.
Our nurturing environment, culture of respecting everyone, and promotion of tolerance, acceptance and diversity is the perfect backdrop to allow pupils to grow into young adults, who have an understanding of others around them. Our safe and accepting space also allows pupils to express themselves so that they feel part of our community and truly accepted.
We understand that each pupil is different and so are their individual needs. Therefore, to enable them to grow we tailor teaching and learning, making it accessible so that they can flourish and thrive.
We would be delighted to welcome you to the school to see for yourself our very special and inspirational environment and for you to meet our equally inspiring pupils
