Values and ethos

All Bridgewater students merit an education that broadens their experience and prepares them for the challenges of an increasingly competitive world. As part of this, Bridgewater students will need the best possible qualifications available to them. Many of our students come from outstanding primaries where they have already shown high levels of achievement and it is for us to build on this progress and ensure that at the end of KS4 and then again at the end of KS5 they reach their full academic potential. This will only happen where academic rigour is balanced with outstanding care and guidance in the context of an enriched educational experience.

We believe we offer this and can provide all students with the opportunity to thrive. This belief was endorsed following our inspection by Ofsted in November 2011 where we were judged outstanding.
