A few words from the Head

 I am pleased, on behalf of the staff, governors, pupils and students, to write these few words of welcome and an introduction to the Springboard Project.

The New Bridge Multi Academy Trust has been successful in applying to open a new free school in Oldham, the Springboard Project. This provision will provide high quality innovative alternative educational experiences for pupils and students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH) across the 14-19 age range.

We will ensure that all our learners, from Key Stage 4 onwards, engage in a revised and vibrant curriculum offer. As well as including key skills, the young people will also have the chance to experience a wide range of vocational and extending learning opportunities.

The Springboard Project will be linked to clear and aspirational adult outcomes, offering a continuing relationship with families until the young person reaches the age of 25.

We hope our website will provide you with the information and news you need so that you can keep up to date with what is happening here at school. Whether you are a prospective parent, current parent, staff, student, community or casual browser, we trust you will enjoy looking through our site as we aim to provide the best for both our young people and the wider community.

Please contact our team on 0161 883 3250 and we will be happy to answer any queries you may have and refer you to the appropriate member of staff.
