Dream – Believe – Achieve

Confidence Through Creativity

Anstee Bridge in Kingston Upon Thames is a project that helps young people aged 15 – 16 build confidence and resilience and re-engage with education through creativity.


With an empowering creative twist, we embed and support confidence for youngsters who might otherwise get lost in the system.

Our emphasis is on raising confidence and self-esteem, teaching life skills and emotional literacy. Using the power of creativity, Anstee Bridge aims to support and engage young people by helping them discover more positivity in their lives and to believe in their future.


Anstee Bridge was set up in 2008 with funding from Kingston Borough Council and is now partly funded through the dedicated schools grant. This means that we are always looking for help with funding, for new supplies to support our learning environment and for the dedication of volunteers to help us encourage and inspire our students to enjoy a fun fulfilling and successful future.

As teenagers do I had a lot of self confidence issues and hated my body and myself all together. I got bullied at school for my weight and my looks which lead me down a very steep slope. Read more..
My life when Katherine reached out to me was struggling, I felt like everything around me was failing; I had no motivation to make it better. My mum was battling long-term depression, my dad was recovering from a heart attack and my school attendance had suffered from the time off I needed to deal with all this. On top of all this education welfare were prosecuting my father because of my poor attendance. I felt that my school gave me no support, or just not enough that I needed. If I didn’t wake up and notice the hole I was digging myself I would have ended up in a pit I wouldn’t have been able to get out of. Read more..
