Supporting the School

Welcome to our page about supporting the school!

We are very fortunate in that many organisations and individuals in the Community continue to support us in many different ways.

Ipswich Golf Ladies Section presented a cheque to help towards the school's new sensory room.

Chatsworth Ladies Group- Chatsworth Ladies have continued to support us over a number of years both in fund raising and providing each pupil with an Easter Egg at Easter.

Gipping Valley Stompers- The Gipping Valley Stompers regularly play their Jazz Band for us at many different events throughout the year.

Suffolk Motorcycling Group- Over several years they have provided funding to pay for specialised transport for whole school outings.

Duke of York Public House, Ipswich- For the last two years the patrons of the public house in Ipswich have held a `Fun Day' on the Bank Holiday Monday in August and have donated all the proceeds to The Bridge School.

We are very fortunate to have four mini buses, two on each Campus. Two of our mini buses were donated by The Variety Club when we were Heathside School and Belstead School and another of our mini buses was donated by The Freemasons. Without the use of our mini buses we would not be able to attend our weekly Riding for the Disabled sessions, work experience, social skills visits to local supermarkets, forests and seaside.

Each year our Year 11 students take part in Work Experience and we would like to thank the following establishments for making this possible:- Whitehouse Enterprises, Tesco and Growing Places.

Local people of Suffolk who kindly send in vouchers on a regular basis for Sainsburys, Morrison's and Tesco which help provide very valuable resources to be used in school.
