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.
Nicky Crook, local Duke of Edinburgh’s Award operations manager, was in school recently to present Mr Taylor with a plaque and official certified recognition of Ridgeway’s new directly licensed centre (DLC) status.
Mr Cross, Ridgeway’s DofE coordinator, said:
“This is a really significant development. It allows us to move away from local authority oversight and deliver all future DofE training, assessment and certification in-house. Ridgeway’s efforts should prove to be an example, as an increasing number of schools opt for the DLC pathway.”
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at Ridgeway high School continues to go from strength to strength. Click to learn more.
