New Bridge School Learning Centre successfully raises the aspirations of disabled students and their families by offering an excellent range of Key Stage 4 and sixth form pathways that caters for a variety of special educational needs. Highly effective routes to employment and apprenticeships as well as opportunities which enable students to make outstanding progress in becoming more independent, mean that post-16 students are extremely well prepared and motivated to move on to the next step in their education or training.
