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.

As a result of our work during Anti-Bullying Week earlier in the year, Ridgeway High School has been recognised as the Anti-Bullying Ambassador School of the Month for March 2019.
Miss Grundy said: “This is a fantastic achievement, as we have been chosen out of a pool of over 1200 active anti-bullying ambassador schools!”
More details to follow.
In early December, we welcomed back last year’s Year 11 students for their awards evening.
Mr Taylor said:
“This is always one of my favourite occasions in the school calendar. A few short months ago, these students were sitting GCSE examinations; now, they are embarked upon their post-16 journey and adulthood beckons. For me, therefore, as well as being an opportunity formally to congratulate students on their efforts, successes and achievements during their time at Ridgeway, awards evening is also a reminder of our core purpose as a school – to prepare our young people to take their place in the world, equipped and ready for the challenges of modern life.”
Congratulations to Mr Metcalf and the PE department. On Friday 16 November, in the stunning surroundings of Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, the school was announced as runner-up in the Outstanding Commitment to Sport in a Secondary School category at the prestigious Educate Awards, the largest education awards in the north west.
