Welcome to Polden Bower School                                                                                                                
I would like to welcome you to Polden Bower School, a  special school on the edge of Bridgwater. I hope that you find what you are looking for on our website.
Polden Bower opened its doors in May 2021 after 4 years of design and build work. The school was built to bring additional specialist capacity to the town of Bridgwater and the surrounding areas within Sedgemoor. 
Polden Bower caters for children and young people from 4 years to 19 years who have an Education, Health and Care Plan. 
I am very proud to be the Executive Headteacher of Polden Bower, we have a team of very dedicated and passionate staff who work hard for every student and strive for excellence in everything that they do. 
I am also proud of our students and how hard they work to overcome the barriers to their learning and development. 
Polden Bower is in a hard federation with Avalon Special School in Street and also in a formal partnership with The Bridge School in Sedgemoor. The three schools work very closely together and the partnership ensures the sharing of resources, facilities and expertise.
We welcome visitors to Polden Bower School, if you would like to visit the school or have any questions about our work, please contact the school reception on the contact details below.
Helen Farnell
