About Ridgeway Academy

WELCOME TO RIDGEWAY ACADEMY

Ridgeway Academy is an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school based in Welwyn Garden City. It was founded in 1968 as Sir Frederic Osborn School, in honour of one of the founding fathers of Welwyn Garden City, and became Ridgeway Academy in 2018 when we joined the Alban Academies Trust.

Now oversubscribed, the school retains its strong sense of community with our students describing us as ‘a school with a big heart’.

Our school vision is  ‘Everybody can achieve’. We will develop every student’s capacity to learn so that they become increasingly independent as they progress through the school.  The strength of positive relationships between students and staff allows everyone to achieve in their learning.

The very highest standards of conduct, respect, effort and personal attainment are our goal for all members of our school.  We are a caring and well-disciplined school and our key aim is to ensure that all students realise their potential. We are a happy school, with an energetic and talented staff committed to the achievement of our young people. Everyone has a part to play at Ridgeway Academy and everyone is listened to.

We are a member of the Alban Academies Trust, a Trust where each school makes a powerful contribution to the on-going progress across the Trust, and we enjoy working in partnership and learning constantly from each other. Working collaboratively we remain focused on continuously improving to provide both rewarding careers for our employees’, and amazing experiences for the young people in our care.

Please visit our website to learn more about our school.

Ridgeway Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointment to  our posts may be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check, as well as other pre-appointment checks including an online check, as outlined in Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2022).

We are committed to the aim of ensuring that everyone who applies to work for us receives fair treatment and we positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of age, disability, race, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, religion or belief, marriage and civil partnership and caring status. We expect all our staff to demonstrate a commitment to advancing equality of opportunity and fostering good relations.
