In February, many of our forty-one bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award recipients were able to attend a rescheduled celebration evening. The ceremony was also attended by family, friends and well-wishers, who were able to learn more about the amazing achievements of Ridgeway students. The guest of honour was Nicky Cage, DofE operations manager for the region, who presented award certificates.
Well done to all the students for their endeavours, showing resilience, determination and fortitude.

Congratulations to the PE department, which has been nominated in two categories in the Wirral Sports Development Forum Awards: Sports Department of the Year and Boys’ Team of the Year (for our Year 7 county cup finalists).
The awards ceremony will take place at Holme Hall in October.
Mr Metcalf, head of PE, said: “The whole department is very proud to be nominated for these awards. It shows the hard work that has gone in over the last twelve months – year one of our five-year plan to make the school a sporting powerhouse in the north west.”
These nominations come just days after the school was awarded the School Games Gold Mark for 2017-2018. In June 2018, the PE department also won the Echo Schools Communication Award for its innovative approaches to communicating with students and parents.
