Welcome to The Bridge Short Stay School

As Headteacher, I am delighted to be able to welcome you to the website of The Bridge Short Stay School, as a Pupil Referral Unit, The Bridge caters for young people across Cheshire West and Chester. The majority of our students have been permanently excluded from mainstream schools, others, for a variety of reasons, have found themselves without a school place. All students are offered the support they need within a personalised programme to give them a second opportunity to succeed in education. We change lives by putting our students in a position to make the most of the opportunities that will come their way in life.

I’m proud to lead a staff team that believe in our young people and regularly go above and beyond in order to support them. Our students may have experienced difficulty in school previously but they have boundless potential and it is a privilege to watch them grow into the young adults they can be. Previous students are graduating from University, successfully completing apprenticeships and contributing to society in meaningful employment.

Please explore our website and look at the information which should give you a flavour of our school and what we do. If you would like any further information however, please contact school to either discuss or arrange a time to visit.

Collaboration and trust empower our school community and allow all students to achieve their full potential.
