Bridgemary Community School

Bridgemary Community Sports College, formally "Bridgemary Community School", is a comprehensive 11-16 secondary school in Gosport, Hampshire, England.

Bridgemary College is based in the most deprived ward in Gosport, and in 2001 was classed as a failing school with only 19% getting five or more good GCSEs. The school has also been identified by the Department for Education and Skills as being among 148 nationwide which were likely to have a "high number of persistent truants".

The current head - Cheryl Heron - has introduced ability-centred no-age-related classes (with year groups: E1,E2,E3,L1 and L2), and by 2006 the GCSE A to C pass rate has risen to 35%. fact|date=October 2007

In September 2006 it was announced that Bridgemary College was to be the first school in the country to offer teaching around the clock with teaching and extra-curricular activities taking place from 7am to 10pm and learning modules being available online at any time. The scheme will be phased in over four years, beginning in September 2007. In the first and second stages, the school will ensure that teaching support is available 24 hours a day and in four different time slots for four different groups of students. Stage three will see teaching expanded to 364 days a year, while stage four will see community users of the school integrated into the pupils' school experience.
