Ridgeway Admissions 2022

Headteacher’s Welcome

I am delighted that you are considering Ridgeway High School for your child’s secondary education. You will understand why we are unable this year to offer our usual menu of open events. I hope that this page — and the rest of the website — offers you at least a snapshot of what we like to think of as ‘the Ridgeway journey’, the five years during which you entrust us with the care and wellbeing of your child.

Our vision at Ridgeway High School is a simple one: to transform lives through learning. It is at the heart of all that we do.

Watch our new transition video!

We have put this video together for students who are joining us in September.
