Ridgeway House was one of the first four houses in the early days of the school and is named after Bishop Charles John Ridgeway who was Bishop of Chichester from 1908 to 1919. After becoming Bishop of Chichester he restored the chapel in the Bishop’s Palace which is marked by a brass inscription on its West Wall.

Ridgeway House 2018-19
It has been a busy year for our Ridgeway pupils.
A trip to the Isle of Wight in October for our new Year 7 pupils gave them the opportunity to get to know each other; everyone had a great time and got to try lots of new experiences including lazer tag, lighting fires and bowling.
In December Ridgeway House pupils donned their Reindeer Antlers and Flashing Red Noses to brace the bitter cold elements of the school field. Pupils across all key stages took part and completed a substantial number of laps of the rugby pitches. This is an annual charity event for Ridgeway House Charity Chestnut Tree House Hospice.
Ridgeway House did themselves proud at the Interhouse Dance Competition with Year 7 and Year 9 winning their year group competition, Year 10 coming 2nd, making Ridgeway the overall winners of the competition. Congratulations to all those who took part.
Our Year 11s have had a busy year preparing themselves for their GCSE exams - they worked hard and pulled together to support each other at what can be a difficult time. Many of them attended the Year 11 Prom and now have the summer to relax, many of them returning to us in September for the Sixth Form or going off to new adventures at College and apprenticeships. We wish them all the very best.
