Values & Ethos

Our commitment

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 Key Stage 4 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 October 2022 where we were judged Good in all areas and wherein the opening lines are:

“Bridgewater High School is a welcoming and friendly school. Leaders and staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and achievement.”
