North Ridge High School is committed to every young person getting the careers advice, information advice and guidance they need, and that this advice is in their best interest, and theirs alone.



North Ridge High School was awarded the Inspiring IAG Award Stage 2 in September 2019 for the careers provision delivered to young people.
