School Description

The Ridgeway School converted to become an academy school on 1 April 2017. When its predecessor school, The Ridgeway Community School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. The school joined Weydon Multi Academy Trust in April 2017. The school has the same headteacher but there is a new deputy headteacher. Approximately half of the staff have changed since the predecessor school was inspected. The Ridgeway School is a special school which caters for pupils with severe and profound multiple learning difficulties. Many pupils also have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. All pupils have education, health and care plans. The sixth form is run by the school in premises located at Farnham College. There were no children of nursery age on roll at the time of the inspection and a very small number of children aged four and five.
