Ridgewood School


We value a rounded education, so our students have access to an extremely wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. We firmly believe that students get out of school what they put in to it, so we encourage our students of all ages to get actively involved in the many clubs on offer.

For more details of the clubs, trips and activities available this half term, please fill in our ‘Contact Us’ form, select ‘Extra-Curricular’ and let us know what you would like to hear more about.
