Extra-Curricular and Enrichment
At Ridgeway Secondary School, we offer a wide range of activities outside of the classroom for students with varied interests. These can range from musical clubs, chess, art, reading and STEM clubs and numerous other sporting activities. Where possible, students will be given the opportunity to attend trips which support learning in the classroom to expand key knowledge and ideas.
Students should discuss attending clubs with their subject teacher first to ensure that they are aware of the day, when the club is starting, venue and club start and end time and then discuss attending with parents, in advance. Clear arrangements must be made regarding getting home safely/suitable collection point.
A timetable will be sent to parents every half term.
At Ridgeway we understand that learning about who we are and developing as a person does not just happen in the classroom. There are those priceless experiences that we all remember from our time at school. The residential trips, visits and sports fixtures that build character and forge memories that stay with us until today.
As students’ progress through the school, they have opportunities to take advantage of trips and experiences outside of the classroom. Ski trips, residentials for outdoor activities, foreign exchange visits, sports tours, museum visits and theatre performances all feature in the programme. The school also offers the Duke of Edinburgh Award to its students from Year 9 onwards with students achieving both bronze and silver levels of the award.
