1st Newbridge Brownies and Guides
sand and The school opened 1st Newbridge Brownies in September 2013 and 1st Newbridge Guides in 2019. These are real Brownie Guide Unit which are open exclusively to Newbridge Preparatory School girls (a sponsored unit). As a school, we were keen to expand the range of extracurricular provision available to the girls and we wanted to introduce something which would broaden the girls’ interests.
Girl Guides learn new hobbies, play music, explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors. Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Archaeology to Inventing. We try to complete a Brownie Skilll Builder Theme each term. So by joining Brownies and Guides the girls will be joining a whole range of ‘extra-curricular clubs’ all at the same time!
Additionally, we see great benefit in the girls belonging to a worldwide association and a uniformed organisation.
The unit is run by Mrs Fisher (Headmistress) and Miss Hughes (Year One Teacher). Girls can join Brownies from Year Three and Guides in Year Six. We are proud to belong to the wider community of the Girl Guiding Oxley Park District and Girl Guiding County of West Mercia.
