Transforming lives through learning. It is at the heart of all that we do.

We want every student at Ridgeway to be happy and to enjoy learning. Our aim is to prepare our young people to take their place in the world, equipped and ready for their lifelong learning journey and the challenges of modern life.

A warm welcome to Ridgeway High School

Gavin Sterry
Headteacher

On behalf of the governing body, staff and students, I would like to welcome you to Ridgeway High School.

Ridgeway is an academic, vibrant and thriving school. We are heavily oversubscribed, with our largest ever number of students on roll. We are a school where “pupils are happy” (Ofsted, 2021). We are unwavering in our commitment to ensure that the outcomes our young people secure prepare them for life beyond school.

Our vision is of transforming lives through learning and – through our rich and ambitious curriculum – preparing our students to achieve their dreams.
