Active Curriculum

All pupils who attend the Bridge Education Centre benefit from our Active curriculum as a part of their daily timetable.


The curriculum aims to support children to;


  • Improve emotional resilience

  • Gain a positive impact upon mental and physical health through daily activity

  • Enable greater understanding of team working and personal responsibility

  • Learn new skills and activities not previously experienced

  • Improve self-discipline, self-esteem and empathy

  • Develop key social skills

  • Working in the outdoors; bush craft, camp skills and orienteering alongside climbing, skiing & canoeing

  • Gain activity specific qualifications such as junior sports leaders, trampolining, coaching etc

  • Add value to their academic curriculum through a cross team collaborative approach giving pupils direct experience of theory in practice.


GCSE Sport is one of our core subjects and the active curriculum delivers this to ks4.


“The curriculum you offer to pupils is broad and varied, and is tailored to meet their individual needs. Activities offered as part of your active curriculum include football,

dry-slope skiing, indoor climbing, canoeing and bush-craft. Pupils appreciate these activities and being able to suggest which activities they can do. The opportunity to take GCSEs, combined with the wide range of other qualifications offered to pupils, helps to prepare pupils well for their future life. Staff work

effectively together to ensure that all pupils

have access to a completely bespoke curriculum.

When devising these curriculums, the emotional,

social and learning needs of each pupil are

considered fully. As a result, pupils are keen to

come to school. They can access all aspects of

the curriculum easily, and consequently engage

positively in their learning. Your flexible

approach ensures that they leave the school

with increased resilience and self-confidence.”

“Innovative practice”

Key elements to the design of the curriculum are

centred on accessing a host of expertise that

may be found outside of the classroom, whether

these are external coaches in sports or high

quality professionals in new areas like Outdoor

and Adventurous Activities, students will experience new settings.


The Bridge Active team use a rich variety of venues to provide pupils with a sense of the community around them, the opportunities available to them and access to high quality professional coaching, mentoring and expertise.

​Team members are qualified to deliver a variety of activities and are ideally placed to advise, support and develop children at ks3 and 4.
