Welcome to The Ridge Academy 

The Ridge Academy is a specialist provision for children with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) needs. We teach children across KS1 and KS2 in small classes with an ambitious curriculum and increased opportunities for SEMH development opportunities. 

We have high expectations for our pupils and all our staff work alongside the children, families and other professionals to ensure their needs are met. 

The Ridge is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) which means that there are a huge range of training and progression opportunities for our staff, as well as the capacity to make meaningful changes for our pupils. Everyone strives to find their remarkable selves. 

If you'd like to find out more please do contact us and we look forward to hearing from you.
