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.

@BerniceKostick: @NorthRidgeSch A very sad week. A loved member of our school team died. We got ready to tell our pupils & then we had to close our Key stage 3 bubble on Friday. Thanks to staff, One Ed EP service for your support. Most of all our thoughts are with Sharon & her family RIP🥲
