“Our daughter attended the Bridge School between the ages of 12 and 19. Previously, I had always felt that when her school said ‘do drop in at any time’, that we were always in the way if we did so.
At The Bridge it was different; I always felt that I could drop in, talk about any problem [and very often either receive help in solving it or have it solved for me, or just provide a listening ear], meet and chat to any of the staff and was always part of a happy caring environment. Everyone always made us feel welcome and never a nuisance.”
“In my country, my daughter had to be hidden away and was ignored. I didn’t know what to do, I felt that I had lost her but when we came to England The Bridge School gave her back to me.”
“My son loved the curriculum which was really relevant to his needs, and being at school. We were always treated with respect and I can’t fault the school.”
“My daughter attended the school for many years from the age of 2 years to 19 years old. Her needs became increasingly complex as she grew older but the school was always able to adapt to her daily needs. Staff always bent over backwards to support her not only with her education but with her emotional and health needs as well as supporting our family in whatever context was needed.”
