The permanent school building opened in September 2018. In September 2023, the academy will be 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!
