Welcome to the website of Bridge Integrated Primary School. We hope you enjoy this visit and that it will give you a brief insight of our busy and vibrant school.

Bridge Integrated Primary School opened its doors in September 1987 with only 75 pupils. Today the school has over 400 pupils who come from a wide range of backgrounds, creeds and abilities. 

Bridge IPS is a child-centred school, where the individual needs of pupils are met in an environment that is caring, positive and motivating. We promote an ethos of respect and positive behaviour in order to allow everyone to achieve their fullest potential. 

At Bridge IPS we value the support and co-operation of our parents.  We hope that you enjoy browsing our website!
