Welcome to North Ridge High School...

We are a school that meets the diverse special educational needs of pupils between the ages of 11 and 19 and a specialist support school.

I am very proud to lead this developing and successful school. We have a thriving, challenging, calm and happy environment where our pupils strive to do their best educationally, emotionally and socially in our supportive and caring learning environment.
