The Bridge London Trust is a unique Multi Academy Trust which consists of three special schools, one primary school, a teaching school and an outreach service.
The Bridge School is a large special school which provides for pupils with severe learning difficulties and/or autism. It is based on two sites, a Primary site and a Secondary site. The Bridge School has been judged outstanding by Ofsted in its last three inspections.
We have always been committed to supporting staff and pupils in other schools and sharing the knowledge we have. It was a natural progression for the CEO/Executive Headteacher to become a National Leader of Education in 2009 and the school to become a Teaching School in 2011.
The Bridge London supports schools which may be facing challenging circumstances through facilitating our staff and staff from other schools to provide advice and support, and to share, develop and promote research.
This has enabled us to offer a wide variety of training opportunities to our own staff and staff from other schools and over the last 5 years delivering our own, individual initial teacher education PGCE programme for primary mainstream QTS through Schools Direct.
The Bridge London is unique, not only in the range of provision but also the fundamental principles which drive us;
The five Ps
Pride, Passion, Professionalism, Partnership and Positivity.
Our decisions and developments are anchored on these values. When recruiting we look for staff who embrace and uphold these values.
About the accredited body
Goldsmiths, University of London, got its name when the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths acquired the original school in 1891; they were one of the first 'city livery companies' of London, starting out as a trade guild in the 12th century.
Goldsmiths' postgraduate programmes champion perspectives that push the boundaries, provoke thought and stretch the imagination. Students will be inspired to develop fresh ideas and new approaches to their discipline through the teaching of renowned academics and their own research. With an exciting events programme and a welcoming academic community, students are bound to find their place at Goldsmiths.
