Ridgewood High School - Information for Year 6

At Ridgewood we work hard to develop our links with our local primary schools and there is a primary transition programme that runs for the full year that enables students to come and have different experiences at Ridgewood and find out what we are about. It is my privilege to work with our local primary schools and their fantastic students and we are working hard together to produce a primary program of events that will encourage academic success alongside creativity, resilience and fun!

Clearly this year has been very difficult and COVID has prevented us doing lots of the lovely events that we normally would with our feeder schools. However if you wish to find out more about us and what we offer please follow the links below and this will give you an idea of our usual primary transition pathway, the events that we normally hold for Y5 and how we support Y6. We will have an online induction booklet going onto the website shortly it is just having a couple of updates! In March we will have confirmed our next Y6 intake and we will be starting to contact parents so that we can introduce ourselves to you and answer any questions you may have. In the meantime there are a number of video clips in the Y6 information section under `transition videos’ which you can watch at your leisure that provide you with student and staff perspective of the school.

If as a prospective parent you would like a tour of the school please do feel free to contact me via the email below in order to arrange one, we will be able to offer these after Easter. If you have any questions or queries about our primary transition or induction program or want to talk to us about your child please use the email to contact me and I will be happy to set up a meeting either with myself, our Head of Year 7 or our SENCO.



Yours sincerely
