Schools within School

Tor Bridge has grown rapidly and now numbers 1250 pupils including a sixth form of 350 (seventy of whom have joined from other schools in the City and beyond). Although the success is encouraging, we don't believe large units are best for children, so we have completely re-designed Tor Bridge High around four small schools, each with about three hundred students with their own Head of School and staff team. One of these schools (Cade) is the sixth form whilst the other three are for students aged 11-16. The schools are home bases with a strong family atmosphere where staff really get to know children and their families very well. The small school teams work very closely together but, needless to say, are also extremely competitive with one another!

We firmly believe that children and young people thrive in smaller, not larger, units where they work with staff who really know them and their families. Pooling our staff and resources will enable us to transform the way children and young people learn, with world class facilities, flexible room layouts and teaching groups they don’t always depend on learners being the same age. We are doing this so that learning can be genuinely personalised, with learners belonging to small, family-style hubs and where challenges and opportunities don’t have to wait ‘until you’re old enough.’ Whether it’s doing GCSE maths early, going pot-holing, organising a show, starting a mini-business or learning Mandarin, if students are ready, they’ll do it!
