Vision and values

At North Ridge pupils come first and our priority is to provide high quality teaching and learning whilst at the same time providing truly enjoyable learning experiences for our community of pupils.  Everything we do as a school is to ensure that the pupils achieve their very best.

We want every pupil to be successful; to reach for success from the very first day they join us, throughout their school lives and beyond school.
