The Bridge Centre is a Pupil Referral Unit, serving the Lichfield and Burntwood 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, housing a small farm, raised beds, student art work and a pond, aiding the therapeutic side of what Bridge seeks to offer.
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 up to 9 GCSE's dependent upon their ability. Bridge offers a broad and balanced curriculum both academic and vocational in order to meet the needs of all.
