Introducing the Thrive Approach
What does it take to develop healthy, happy, confident children who are ready and open to learning? Recent advances in neuroscience, attachment theory and child development have provided some of the answers to this question.
The Thrive Approach draws on insights from these fields to provide a powerful way of working with children and young people that supports optimal social and emotional development. In addition, the Approach can equip you to work in a targeted way with children and young people who may have struggled with difficult life events to help them re-engage with life and learning.

The Bridge Education Centre is recognised for excellence in science teaching
The Bridge Education Centre has today been
awarded the prestigious Gold Science Mark,
in recognition of the excellent work undertaken
by our science department.
Science Mark was created by STEM Learning to
recognise and celebrate best practice in science
departments across the UK. Schools and colleges
receive the Science Mark when they can show that
they are delivering inspiring lessons for students
