1994 was the birth of our democracy and a time of significant growth in our valley. It soon became apparent that there was a demand for an excellent, world-class, English-medium school in the valley. Three families came together to make this dream a reality. If their imagination got us this far, just imagine what we can achieve in the next 25 years.
The concept of a local English-medium independent school in the Berg River Valley moved from the realms of fantasy to a realistic possibility. The Huxter, Friedman and Rands families devoted themselves tirelessly to making it happen; Graham Beck, the owner of the neighbouring farm, Bellingham, generously agreed to donate 10 hectares of an undeveloped corner of his land and the Bridge House School dream became a reality.
