North Bridge House has a strong and burgeoning academic reputation in London and beyond. The Independent Schools Inspectorate regularly inspect each North Bridge House site and our focus on delivering a broad and innovative curriculum taught by specialist teachers, our commitment to the personal development of our pupils and the outstanding social, moral, spiritual, and cultural programme we offer is consistently recognised and valued by the inspectorate.
As part of the North Bridge House ethos, we aim to provide a well-rounded academic education that allows our pupils to become independent, lifelong learners, who can fully contribute to and make informed decisions within society. Our vision is for pupils to be able to pursue their personal academic interests through a relevant, engaging and appropriately challenging curriculum. We want our pupils to leave with the very best skills and achievements so that they are fully prepared for higher education.
All Year 12 pupils are encouraged to take the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), with pupils receiving dedicated support with academic research and presentation skills and the assistance of a supervisor for their project work.
Pupils applying to Oxbridge colleges visit Oxford or Cambridge in the final term of Year 12 and attend academic lectures and reading sessions, as well as workshops on writing their personal statement. At the start of Year 13, pupils are allocated a mentor to support the finalisation of their personal statement and begin preparing for international/admissions assessments. When invited to interview, pupils receive additional support from a mentor and an external tutor. North Bridge House alumni who have attended Oxbridge colleges are also involved in supporting our applicants.
North Bridge House takes a very similar approach with pupils applying to Health Sciences degree programmes and provides mentoring and specialist support for interviews. Time away from school for work experience and job shadowing in specialist fields is encouraged and supported.
