Alt Bridge caters for KS3, KS4 & Post 16 and we aim to equip our pupils with the ability to follow active, enjoyable and responsible lives.  We are committed to lifelong learning and developing pupil’s ability to become active, enjoyable and responsible citizens.  A major aim is to develop social skills, good relationships with peers and self discipline within the school and home.


We have attempted to create an environment where pupils can be academically and socially challenged to achieve the very highest standard, albeit in a setting that doesn’t create unnecessary anxiety.  We have a highly experienced staff team and extremely supportive parents and governors.

The curriculum at Alt Bridge is designed to ensure our pupils are engaged, curious, well behaved, motivated and keen to succeed.  The resources and the building enable continued development of the curricular offer, which we are always progressing.

We believe pupils have an entitlement to resources and facilities of the highest quality, this combined with committed and dedicated staff provide for a winning combination.  Pupils are able to develop into young adults in a safe, caring and stimulating environment, where learning is enjoyable and fun.
