Personal Development at Bridlington School

 Bridlington School’s intent is to equip its students with a broad and contextual knowledge of the wider world, enhancing their personal development and ensuring they get a wide variety of cultural enrichment.

Our Aims

  • Extend the curriculum beyond the academic, technical or vocational. Our curriculum provides for learners’ broader development, enabling them to develop and discover their interests and talents.
  • The curriculum and the school’s wider work support learners to develop their character – including their resilience, confidence and independence – and help them know how to keep physically and mentally healthy
  • At each stage of education, the school aims to prepare learners for future success in their next steps.

How do we prepare learners?

Bridlington School prepares learners for life in modern Britain by:

  • equipping them to be responsible, respectful, active citizens who contribute positively to society.
  •  developing their understanding of fundamental British values.
  • developing their understanding and appreciation of diversity.
  • celebrating what we have in common and promoting respect for the different protected characteristics as defined in law.

We are acutely aware of the national, regional and local context of the school and aim to respond to the demands of the community that our learners will graduate into by delivering a thoughtful, bespoke provision. Learners begin this journey immediately when they arrive in Year 7 and continue to benefit from a strategically planned and interleaved provision via: the curriculum, visitors to the school, the pastoral structure they become part of, extra-curricular clubs and activities and the very ethos of the school.
