Academy

Welcome to The Bridge

The Bridge is a quiet, inclusive space, which works around supporting and nurturing those pupils who may need additional support.

The Bridge also provides a space for pupils to catch up academically, should they find themselves behind in their studies and offers a whole school homework club at lunchtime and afterschool.

Here at Ripley St Thomas we are extremely proud of the support we are able to offer those pupils who may be experiencing life challenges.
