The opportunity to educate other people’s children is an honour and a great privilege, bringing with it a huge responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible as we aim to prepare young people for happiness and enjoyable success in their adult lives. At The Bridge International School, we take this responsibility extremely seriously. We care about the individual child and young adult and pride ourselves in the warmth of a community in which all our pupils feel valued for who they are.

We live in exciting and fast changing times and this means that providing an outstanding, progressive and well-rounded education is more important than ever. Never forgetting that examination results matter and at The Bridge our pupils consistently achieve excellent results in all areas of the curriculum, giving them access to the top universities in the UK and overseas. However, this is just one small aspect of the education we provide; pupils are supported to demonstrate ambition both within and beyond the classroom environment. In June 2020, our year 6 students had 100% pass rate in the national exams, our IGCSE results were 100% A* to C, AS 100% A* to C and A2 100% A* to C with these top results, The Bridge International School achieved top results in the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards. We were delighted to see Kamden Simo Sarah receive the “Top of the World award” for achieving 8 A* and an A at IGCSE level.

At The Bridge we are opening the young minds to the future of Artificial Intelligence, part of educating students is now in the home, as well as in the classroom, we have made important and timely execution to embrace online learning and active facilitation in this digital world. Our forward thinking goals, have enabled a strict self- discipline training for our learners, enabling prepared students to thrive in a changing environment, with the full support of our Honourable Cambridge Teachers our students will grow in responsibility, self-discipline, and a general growth in individual high performance without any excuses.

Our aim is School should be fun, and we know happy children are more likely to be successful.  We see it as our responsibility to bring out our honourable students talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. To do this we aim to foster confidence, resilience, perseverance, tolerance and integrity; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; and to promote an open-minded and outward-looking mentality so that our honourable students are ready to make a genuine positive contribution to their family, and wider community.

Tradition is important here and still shapes some of our guiding principles but we seek to build on the past while looking to the future. This is, and will remain, a forward-thinking school that enthusiastically embraces research and innovation, with an openness to present confidently new opportunities.

We are committed to making The Bridge International School’s education accessible to talented students in an inclusive approach, whatever their background.

We also pride ourselves for being a very safe school keeping to a strict Covid 19 protocol.

We will do our very best to add lasting value into our students hearts, minds, and body

 

At The Bridge, we care, we share, we learn together

Best wishes,
