Background about the School
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 2023, the
academy became two-form entry from Nursery through to Year Six, taking children
from aged 2-11, with two bulge classes in YR and Y1 as we continue our
preparations to become a 3-form entry school.
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 so that by September 2024, our building
will be able to accommodate over 650 children. Exciting!
