Vision and Ethos
Bridge House Independent School seeks to improve the life chances of children and young people by raising aspiration and fulfilling potential.
We believe that all children have a right to a high quality education regardless of their ability, prior educational or life experiences. We offer our students a curriculum which is tailored to their individual needs and which delivers real life experiences, promotes independence, and stimulates intellectual curiosity, whilst developing a strong sense of individual responsibility, personal belief, and confidence.
Our approach gives every student the opportunity of a secure progression route in their learning and personal development and prepares them to take positive steps into their futures, as successful and caring members of society.
Everything we do is about the future of our students.
Our 4 Core principles underpin all we do:
- RESPECT: We treat each other as equals, respecting differences and celebrating diversity.
- TRUST: We listen to and each other and develop open and honest relationships.
- ASPIRATION: We believe that we can and will become the best possible version of ourselves.
- ACHIEVEMENT: We support each other to reach our goals and fulfil potential.
Bridge House Independent School strives to be recognised, within our Local Educational Authority, and beyond, as a centre of excellence which can provide the highest possible standards of education, care, and facilities for children with additional Social, Emotional or Mental-Health (SEMH) needs, within a culture of enjoyment and achievement for all.
We aim to provide a curriculum which is tailored to the individual needs of the student, delivering real life experiences, promoting independence, and stimulating intellectual curiosity, whilst developing a strong sense of individual responsibility, personal belief, and confidence.
