Introduction to the Governing Body

Welcome from Rachel Hudson, Chair of Governors


As chair of Governors at The Bridge, I extend a warm welcome to students, parents and professionals working with the school. The Bridge is a short stay school to provide for students who have been permanently excluded from mainstream school. It is our aim to break down and remove barriers to learning, to develop students' self confidence and their readiness to learn. We have high aspirations for our students. We recognise that there are challenges to overcome in order to help students to be ready to learn. The school invests heavily in support, welfare and personal development in order to help students to achieve good outcomes and to bridge the gap between their current level and their ability and potential. We support students onto quality destinations at college, apprenticeships and into employment.

We believe that every student is an individual with the potential to achieve. We recognise that students often arrive at a difficult time in their school career, often below targets but we strongly believe that with the support of staff, a strong partnership with parents and professionals in the community, we can achieve excellence
