We are proud to announce that our brand-new school building is now open!
It has superb, cutting-edge facilities, built on three floors, with classrooms fully equipped with cutting-edge technology to support students’ learning.
Creativity and Enterprise
The ground floor is the base for the Creativity and Enterprise Faculty (Design Technology, PE and Performing Arts), including a main hall auditorium, dance studio, drama studio, music room and practice rooms, art & design facility with kiln, two food rooms, textiles and two product design facilities.
All-day catering hall
The ground floor also has a separate ‘all day’ catering hall that serves both the school and community events in the evening.
Communication and Ethics
The first floor is the Communication and Ethics Faculty (English, MFL, Humanities and Learning for Life). This floor also includes a library resource centre for private study and research, as well as a suite of small learning support tutorial and seminar rooms for intervention and small-group work.
Innovation and Development
The second floor is the Innovation and Development Faculty (Mathematics, Science, Computer Studies and Business) and includes a suite of five science rooms, two ICT-rich classrooms and six further classrooms, similar to the middle floor.
Headteacher Mr Taylor said:
“We have come a long way to realising the vision for the school as a provider of inspirational learning. I’m particularly keen that Ridgeway remains at the heart of the community, opening fifty hours a week for fifty weeks of the year. These superb new facilities should benefit each and every one of us – students, staff and the local community.”
