The Bridge Short Stay School provides an education for KS1-KS4 students in the Lichfield, Burntwood, Cannock and Rugeley District who are either permanently excluded from school, in danger of losing their mainstream place or experiencing emotional health issues. The Bridge staff are dedicated to improving the life chances of students and wherever possible encouraging them to return to mainstream education where possible. The Bridge Short Stay School is a place where students can achieve and exceed previous expectations. We have a strong, supportive staff team in an environment where there is a positive ethos and a sense of enjoyment.
