Ethos and Values

All schools have a unique identity and at The Ridge Academy we believe that we have created an outstanding friendly, caring and supportive environment that encourages our children to fully learn and develop into well-rounded pupils ready for the challenge of the 21st century.

We encompass the values of our trust, AET - values we believe will lead children on to truly leading a remarkable life.

Vision and Values

Our children are happy and feel safe in school. Our exceptionally talented staff team use all their expertise and experience to extend learning, creating challenges in a broad and balanced, experience rich curriculum.

Our Governors fully support the school in providing the best possible educational opportunities for all. As a school we actively seek to involve and promote the local community wherever possible.

The firm foundations we build enable us to develop a range of qualities and skills which lead to scholastic excellence through fostering a love of challenge.
