Year 6 Open Evening 24th September 2014 - 09 September 2014 - Mrs Hindle

Dear Parent/Carers,


We would like to invite you and your Year 6 child to our Open Evening on Wednesday 24tth  September 2014.


The evening provides the opportunity to look around Lower School, meet some of our staff and listen to a 30 minute presentation involving senior colleagues and myself.  Because of the high numbers attending these evenings, we ask that you attend the thirty minute presentation at 6.30pm if your surname begins with letters A-L and at 7.30pm if it begins with the letters M-Z.


Parking is available at Lower School so we would request that you avoid parking on Hall Drive or in the area around Beechways, Fairways and Pineways.  Instead if at all possible, we ask if you would walk to the school or leave your car in the Upper School car park on Broomfields Road.


If you are unable to attend, we also hold an Open Day on Thursday 25th September 2014 which involves a tour of the Lower School by pupils.  If you would like to take part in this, please can you return the reply slip indicating the time, which is most convenient.  If you would also like to tour the Upper Site please contact Mr Parker Deputy Head of Upper Site (Tel:- 01925-263919).


If you have any additional accessibility requirements that you feel the school should be aware of prior to either the Open Evening or Open Day please contact Mrs Gorman at the Lower Site. (Tel:- 01925-263814).


I do hope the prospectus, Open Evening and Open Day will enable you to make the best possible choice of secondary school for your child and if there is anything else you wish to know please do not hesitate to ask by contacting the school.


Yours sincerely,




Mr T.M.Long

Exam Results Summer 2014 - 02 September 2014 - Mr Long

Students Shine at Bridgewater High School

Following the summer exam season, Bridgewater High school is proud to celebrate the individual success of many of its students. At GCSE there were some incredibly strong performances across all grades. At the higher end for example, the following students gained at least 8 A* to A grades: Fiona Bainbridge, Eve Bottomley, Caitlin Bracken, Reece Brunt, Alexander Carr, Sam Cooper, Jessie Duncalf, Joe Farmer, Harry Gibbins, Kieran Greaves, Timothy Hatch, Julia Kaut, Laura Kennedy, Kyle  Kirkpatrick, Abbey Lawrence, Emily Mahon Rosie Mead, Lydia Mercer-Smith, Luke Monks, Alex Mulholland, Alastair Nunn, Georgia Pantazides, Poppy Parker, Katie Pennington,  Salena Rayner, Gregory Ridley, Holly Roach, Rianna Russell, Olivia Seger-Evans, Libby Shaw, Kate Shrewsbury-Gee, Hannah Simpson, Benjamin Sutcliffe, Ruth Tomlinson, Georgie Unsworth.

These robust individual performances were matched by an increase of 3% in our overall figure for 5 or more GCSEs at A*-C including English and maths. There was also an increase of 4% for students gaining an A*-C in both English and maths. Overall subjects performed strongly with some notable achievements at A* and A. In Chemistry 43% of students achieved this benchmark whilst for Biology and Physics it was 40% and 46% respectively. Meanwhile in History, traditionally a high performing subject at Bridgewater, 47% of students gained an A*-A whilst in Computer Technology- new this year, 53% of students gained an A*or A. The Arts subjects and Graphic Design also saw students put in some very strong performances where overall 39% of all entries gained an A* or A grade.

Students who attended Appleton College also put in some excellent performances including the following: Kate Dewsnip 2A, 2B, Alex Lord 1A, 2B, Luke Marsh 2A*, 2A, Zain Rana 1A*, 2B, 1C, Hetty Roach 1A, 2B, Mia Singleton 1A*, 1A, 2B, Abbie Soutar 1A*, 1A, 1B, Jamie Taylor 3A, 1C, Natalie Williams 3A, 1C, Rachel Winterburn 2A*, 1A, 1B.

I am delighted for the students who have worked so hard over the last few years.  At a time when exams at all levels are getting harder students have risen to the challenge and done themselves, their families and the school proud. I trust now that they will be able to build on their well-earned success.  Well done to everyone.
