Description of Bridgewater Private School

  • Year of foundation: 1950

Bridgewater School is a private independent school for boys and girls 3-18 years old, where children receive a modern and high-quality education in an inspiring and inclusive environment, stimulating and encouraging creativity, focused on supporting individual achievements and developmental environments. It prides itself on outstanding academic results, strategic vision and family spirit.

The school dates back to 1950, when the local community decided to find an alternative to public schools in the area, believing that their children were entitled to a better education – and so Bridgewater was born. The first intake included 55 students, but every year as results were achieved, due to a combination of personal discipline and the pursuit of excellence, the school grew and strengthened. To this day, family ideals are at the core, and the school never tires of opening up new opportunities for boys and girls in the most inspiring, stimulating and receptive environment.

Shortly after opening in 1950, the school moved to Drivewood Hall, part of the Duke of Bridgewater's estate. This building was built in 1855. In 1968, girls were admitted to the school for the first time. The 60-70s were marked by development, expansion and modernization; each new principal sought to contribute to the development of the school. In 1990, a new preparatory building was opened, and in 1996 - the senior building, equipped with laboratories and halls for painting, theater, computer classes. In 2006, a complex of sports facilities and a canteen were added to the ensemble of the school, and in 2015 - an all-weather sports ground.

Today, almost five hundred boys and girls study within the walls of Bridgewater.

Scholarships Bridgewater Private School

The school is a registered charity with the aim of providing independent education to boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 18. Bridgewater accepts children from all social strata and social groups: for this purpose, the school has a number of scholarships, free places have been opened for talented schoolchildren who in another situation could hardly get the opportunity to reach their potential.

In total, more than 20% of high school students receive financial assistance.

  • Scholarships for high school students for excellent success in entrance tests, for merits in the field of fine, performing arts or sports. The assigned scholarship will be paid for the duration of the study, provided that excellent academic performance, attendance and high standards of conduct are maintained. The maximum amount of such a scholarship can be up to 25% of the cost of education. The scholarship can be awarded at any stage of study, but, as a rule, is awarded to applicants of the 7th grade or Sixth Form.
  • Along with the scholarship for distinctions in studies, students can also be granted a scholarship with a check of the criteria of need. It is addressed to students whose values, ideals and aspirations meet the high criteria of the school, but the level of well-being does not allow paying the entire amount for education in full;
  • Every year, the school allocates several free places for low-income students. To qualify for this privilege, the applicant's family must provide a package of documents from the tax authorities, as well as a letter of recommendation from the school where the child studied earlier.

If enrolled in sixth form, students must meet the GCSE exam performance criteria to be considered for a scholarship application.

If a child's parents want to be considered as potential scholarship recipients, they must make a note on the registration form. After reviewing the initial application, the school will send parents an application form for a scholarship, which will need to be sent along with a package of supporting documents before the entrance exams.

Scholarships are awarded based on review by the Bridgewater School Board of Trustees. When awarding any scholarship, the school considers the security of the family; the amount of payments can be adjusted both upwards and downwards.

The number of scholarships is limited, therefore, if there are several applications, those that were received by the school administration earlier will be satisfied.
