Bridge House Independent School


In September 2019, the educational watchdog, OFSTED, created a new inspection framework that requires schools to develop their students’ cultural capital. The framework further reflects on ‘Personal Development’ and how schools support children to learn skills and realise talents, develop character and resilience, and learn about British values, diversity and mental health & well-being.

As a school, we place a high value in the lessons our students learn outside of the classroom – this is reflected in the rich diversity of our enrichment offer, which all students are able to access as part of their school day.

Sessions offered change from term to term and enable our students to focus on developing new hobbies or interests; skills or knowledge or to investigate and interpret current events.

Some of the sessions currently offered include:

  • Art
  • Gardening
  • Music
  • Construction
  • Woodwork
  • American Football
  • Baking
  • Escape rooms
  • Business and Enterprise
  • Horse Therapy
  • Sensory Bus
  • Reading Café
