Welcome to The Ridgeway Primary School.


The Ridgeway is a growing primary school serving a diverse catchment, supporting children and families from the wider Whitley area of Reading and also from the nearby University area. The Ridgeway is one of the schools within the Whitley Excellence Cluster, a group of local schools working together to improve outcomes for children in our local area.


We are hugely proud of all of our pupils and are committed to ensuring that they learn and fulfil their potential in a happy, respectful and safe environment. As our Vision states, we aim to ‘nurture and support all pupils in their personal growth and aspirations’, and we enjoy working alongside parents and the wider community as partners in the children’s learning. 


We hope that this website will introduce you to the ethos and work of our school community.  If you have any queries regarding the information on this website or about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us, and if you would like to make an appointment to look round the school, you will be most welcome.
