About the School

The St Marylebone CE Bridge School, a co-educational Special Free School for 11-16 year olds, aims to create an environment in which our students can achieve their maximum potential, gain independence and social awareness so that they can enjoy and participate in the world of work and adult society along with their mainstream peers. The Bridge School was opened in September 2013 by the existing St Marylebone CE School, a mainstream secondary school rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, to provide an innovative education to students with Educational Health Care Plans (EHCP) for Developmental Language Disorder. Serving the local community, it fulfils the need for secondary places for students with speech and language barriers.


As a church school we nurture respect for religious, moral and spiritual values.  These are located within scripture in Colossians 3.12-17 and underpin much of what we believe in. We seek to nurture Compassion, Kindness, Patience, Forgiveness, Wisdom, Peace and Gratitude in our school community. We acknowledge our special responsibility in preparing our students for life in modern Britain.
