About Green Ridge Primary Academy

Green Ridge Academy is a new primary school built on Berryfields, which opened in September 2017 in temporary accommodation on the site of the permanent building. The permanent school building opened in September 2018. In September 2022, the academy will be two-form entry from Nursery through to Year Five, with a single class in Year Six, taking children from aged 2-11. Whilst the school currently has the capacity for over 450 children, this is an exciting time at Green Ridge, as we continue to grow our site is being expanded with the additional capacity to extend to a three-form entry school with just over 650 children in the near future.

The academy already has a highly skilled and experienced leadership team, and we’re looking for a new Deputy Headteacher to take us to the next level in our journey towards limitless learning; infinite possibilities. There is no doubt about it, setting Green Ridge up on its next phase will take vision, dedication and hard work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding to see the academy take shape over the next few years. To see more information about the school, including design plans of the school, please visit our website www.greenridgeacademy.co.uk.
