Ridgeway Secondary School is proud to operate an ‘Open Door’ policy.

Visitors are always welcome and are only asked to give a little advance notice of their visit so that the headteacher or one of our senior colleagues can be made available to answer questions, along with teacher or student guides for a tour of the academy.

Prospective students and their families are particularly welcome at all times. However, during the first half of the Autumn term, the following additional arrangements have been made.

Our open evening is held in October each year. Staff and students will be available to show you around the academy and discuss aspects of the life and work of Ridgeway, and displays and activities will be presented throughout the evening.

We also offer an Open Morning shortly after the Open Evening which is by appointment only.  Should you wish to visit the school on one of this morning, we should be grateful if you would let us know so that sufficient guides can be made available.

Parents or other interested members of the Community, such as employers, who are unable to attend on the occasions listed above are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school at another, more convenient time.
