About Ridgewood School
The school's values of excellence, integrity, teamwork and enjoyment permeate all aspects of school life and are central to our work at Ridgewood. We are extremely proud of our school and the high quality education we provide. We insist on high standards of conduct from all our students and we expect them to behave impeccably: treating each other, our staff and visitors with kindness and respect.
We strive for all our students to meet and exceed their potential academically, however, we also place a great deal of importance on them really enjoying school and developing skills that will enable them to be responsible members of society. Our aspirations for our students drive every action, shape every interaction and inform every decision each day. We work hard to instil a love of learning, develop resilience and build confidence so that our students continue to flourish now, and in the future.
“We want every student who leaves Ridgewood School to aspire to achieve beyond what they thought they could do when they first started with us.”
Our curriculum is ambitious for all students, regardless of their starting point. We offer a wide range of courses at GCSE and A Level to meet the needs of all. Our curriculum beyond the classroom is also vast and varied, providing our students with countless opportunities to broaden their horizons and share new experiences.
We want Ridgewood to continue to thrive and be at the heart of the local community.
