On behalf of the governors, staff and pupils I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Ridgewood Community High School.   Our school provision meets the needs of learners with generic learning difficulties from 11-19.  It is a privilege to be the Head teacher, leading an enthusiastic and committed team of staff preparing our pupils for their future lives.


The staff are passionate about providing pupils with meaningful learning experiences which are aimed at promoting their development needs.  This commitment to lifelong learning ensures we provide the best education for our pupils encouraging them to engage with and enjoy learning and new experiences.  


There is a range of expertise throughout the school, from our highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants to specialist teams and leaders who strive to encourage the highest levels of achievement for pupils both personal and academic. We are also very fortunate to have an excellent wider community that shares the schools, staff, governors, parents and students’ aims and objectives so we greatly value our partnership with the local community. The ethos of all concerned is that we believe working together is the best way to ensure our pupils develop a solid foundation and a love for learning.


We hold open evenings throughout the year and encourage you to come along and have a look around.
