The construction of Bridge Learning Campus (BLC) was completed in December 2008, opening to students the following January. It was officially opened by The Princess Royal in October 2009. BLC, as an all-through school, enjoys a rare identity as one of only a handful of schools in the UK where a child can begin and end their entire school career within the same establishment.
BLC has incorporated the secondary school formerly known as Hartcliffe Engineering Community College, and also the former Teyfant Community Primary School. BLC (or “The Bridge” as it has become known) has been constructed as part of the former Labour Government’s Building Schools for the Future programme (since scrapped). Additionally, New Fosseway Special School also re-located to the new site in 2009, joining the campus organisation.
