Ridgeway Admissions

Welcome to prospective parents from Gavin Sterry

Gavin Sterry
Headteacher

I am delighted that you are considering Ridgeway High School for your child’s secondary education. 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.

I hope that the information collected together on this 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’.

Open events

We have now completed our scheduled open events for this year. However, you are welcome to contact the school to arrange a visit if you want to learn more about us.

Watch our transition video!

We put this video together in summer 2021 for students who joined us the following September.
