Rewards & Recognition

We use our ASPIRE ethos as a platform to reward students for doing the right things in school.

At Bridgemary School we have AMBITION for SUCCESS and PRIDE in ourselves, our work and our community. We demonstrate INDEPENDENCE and RESILIENCE in our learning to be the best we can be. We always put 100% EFFORT in our work
