Welcome to The Ridgeway School and Sixth Form College


Sixth Form life at The Ridgeway College ensures that all students are fully prepared for the challenges and opportunities of Higher Education and work in the 21st Century. Most of our students progress to higher education and the school has an excellent record of success with past students and their university entrance.

The Sixth Form has its own comfortable and well-equipped common room, designed and decorated by Sixth Formers, two computer rooms and a permanently staffed "silent‟ work area, newly refurbished in 2010.

  • We are very proud of our "outstanding‟ (OFSTED 2008) Sixth Form.
  • Many of our students have enjoyed the challenge A Level study brings, and a number have progressed to Oxford and Cambridge and other top universities to study a wide variety of subjects.
  • Our BTEC courses are equally successful and students also progress from these to employment or higher education.

Alongside our academic opportunities, the students are encouraged to play an active role in the life of the school and local community by taking part in various activities including helping younger students.

Other opportunities for our students lie in the sporting arena. We have excellent facilities for students to pursue their interest in sport either seriously or recreationally. This includes a fitness suite and swimming pool. Likewise, Music and Drama feature prominently as Sixth Formers take a leading role in school productions. There is a Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Programme and much more.

We look forward to meeting you.
