Our Aims


At Bishop Ridley we aim…

  • to create a secure and happy family atmosphere, committed to the care of each member of the school community;

  • to maintain and develop strong supportive links between school, home, parish, diocese and the wider community;

  • to build and nurture our children’s confidence, self-esteem, creativity and skills within an inclusive and caring Christian environment.
