Ridgeway Charter


The Ridgeway Charter sets out the targets, challenges and opportunities we offer all students and notable milestones along what we call the Ridgeway journey. Students can graduate at bronze, silver or gold level, depending on the number of activities successfully completed.

The Ridgeway Charter was introduced in 2018 and revised in the summer of 2022, incorporating students’ feedback on how we might refine and develop it.

The Ridgeway Charter consists of two aspects:

The first is the ‘core’ – elements such as attendance and achievement points, which are relevant to all students in school, regardless of age.

The second aspect is year group-specific.

Through our Charter Days and after-school provision we offer a wide range of activities for students. Examples include:

  • Enrichment clubs
  • A full calendar of sports, with competition at all levels
  • Performing arts, including drama and music, offering performances throughout the year
  • House competitions and events
  • Student Voice and student leadership roles
  • The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme
  • Delivering assemblies and form-time activities
  • Completing acts of kindness
  • Endurance days, including completing the Wirral Walk
  • Involvement in transition activities with local primary schools
