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

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

Ridgeway is a happy, vibrant and thriving school. We are heavily oversubscribed, with more than 180 students in the current year 7, our largest-ever year group. It is a sign of the confidence that the local community has in us and is due in no small part to the hard work of students, staff, governors and parents over the last few years.

I hope that our website conveys something of how we set about turning vision into reality — transforming lives through learning and preparing our young people to take their place in the world, ready for the challenges of modern life.



We hope that, if you were unable to join us at our open evening, the information collected together on our Ridgeway Admissions 2022 page — and the website as a whole — will give you a snapshot of what we like to think of as the five-year ‘Ridgeway journey’.
