Bridgewater School is an independent, co-ed school located in Worsley in Greater Manchester. Established in 1950, Bridgewater boasts a number of modern facilities, including an all-weather pitch, an indoor sports hall and a Drama studio. [1]


The curriculum covers a variety of contemporary topics and provides pupils with an array of possibilities for all-round growth. Class teachers aim to maximise children’s numeracy and literacy skills, while specialist staff further enhance their abilities through engaging lessons for PE, music and drama, among others.


Located in close proximity to Worsley Woods, the school actively invests in diversifying learning and organises regular trips and excursions with the aim of familiarising pupils with the natural world. A selection of clubs is also on offer, allowing children to engage in sport, art, dance, debating, academic challenges, games and music, and hence develop new hobbies and interests. [2]


Supporting pupils academically, non-academically and pastorally, Bridgewater is noted for its warm and inclusive community where children are challenged to perform at their best. The holistic approach toward educating is paired with a forward-looking ethos which prepares students for life beyond school, producing considerate, thoughtful and ambitious individuals.
