Headteacher’s Welcome

A warm welcome from Gavin Sterry

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.

We hope that you find our website holds all the information you need, whether you are a parent or a prospective employee. We believe that Ridgeway High School is a really special place to learn and to work and we are proud to share more about us below:

Our groundbreaking character-education programme

Our website gives lots of very useful information about our school, but we encourage you to arrange a visit during the school day to get a true sense of our fabulous school community.
