The Bridge Centre is a Pupil Referral Unit, serving the Lichfield Burntwood, Rugeley and Cannock Districts in Staffordshire.  It is situated in the heart of the cathedral city of Lichfield and is housed in excellent accommodation surrounded by extensive grounds.

Students are referred either as a direct result of permanent exclusion from school, as a preventative measure, with medical advice, or having recently moved into the area from a similar setting.  Our aim is to reintegrate students wherever possible into another mainstream setting.  In Key Stage 4 it is more likely that students will remain with us until the end of their formal education.

Students have the opportunity to complete GCSE and Functional Skills exams dependent upon their ability.  Bridge offers a balanced curriculum both academic and vocational in order to meet the needs of all.

Referral Process Dual Registered Placements

Most referrals for outreach or placements at Bridge come through the local District Inclusion Panel but initial interest can be expressed by emailing  in the first instance so that the correct DIP area form can be forwarded to gather further information prior to meeting. DIP referral forms are available direct from the DIP Chairperson.
