About Us

Headteacher’s message

We want every student who leaves Ridgewood School to aspire to achieve beyond what they thought they could do when they first started with us.

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Interim Headteacher of Ridgewood School from September. It is a privilege to have been appointed by the Governors and entrusted with the role of leading such a fantastic school.

I have been involved in education throughout my career as a teacher, senior leader, headteacher and school improvement consultant. I now embrace the opportunity of working with our highly inclusive and aspirational school community until the permanent Headteacher, Mr Andy Peirson, takes up post in January 2021.

I am determined to do the very best for Ridgewood School and look forward to working with you. I would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and support in ensuring a successful and safe reopening of the school this September.

- Jean Pickerill, Interim Headteacher
