Please see above a photo from the life of an Army musician event that Siobhan attended on Tuesday. Throughout the day Siobhan was involved in a full rehearsal of the Tidworth marching band, and then she had a chance to play for her grade 5 piece to the whole band. Overall, the day was very enjoyable and has helped Siobhan gain an even better insight into the career she wishes to fulfil.


Congratulations to our Year 9 students for completing the Arts Council Award for thei rwork on the NHS Installation Project. Please see the photo of them with their certificates in the gallery.


Isabel Faria – Head Girl

Hello! I’m really thrilled to be Head girl. This is an incredible opportunity and I am so honoured to be able to represent a school that means so much to me. This role has already developed and nurtured my leadership skills and confidence, something I’m very grateful for, and I want to use this opportunity to promote kindness and acceptance, as well as ensure that everyone gets the most from their experience at Ridgeway.

I am currently studying Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths with a real passion for learning, I am really enjoying the process of preparing for the next stage of university.

However, in my last year at Ridgeway I want to give back as much as I can to a community that has inspired me and make positive contributions to school life for the benefit of others. As we as a student leadership team continue to liaise between the students and teachers, I’m very excited for what the next year will bring.

Alina Safina – Deputy Head Girl

Hiya! I am delighted to be this years Deputy Head Girl. I am thrilled to work alongside the leadership team and students to create an even more exciting and supportive community. Ridgeway has helped many of us to gain confidence and I am very grateful I get the opportunity to do the same for others. I aim to collaborate with R6 committees to bring more academic and social events, as well as building a support system for the students. It’s an honour to represent the school and take part in its activities. I am currently studying Politics, Law and German at A-Level, with an aim to study International Relations and Politics (with a Modern Language) degree at University next year.

Callum Thomas – Head Boy

I am delighted to be The Ridgeway School’s head boy for the next year. Having enjoyed my time here since Year 7, I have been afforded a plethora of opportunities both academically and via extracurricular activities, as such, hopefully, as a Student Leadership Team, we can provide even more great opportunities for every member of R6 and ensure that everyone’s interests are accommodated for. Additionally, given the disrupted nature of school life in the last year, it is our hope that we can reintroduce some of the staples of our great Sixth Form, as well as introducing some exciting new ideas of our own! Currently studying A Level History, Politics and Drama, I am passionate about both the Arts and Sport and thus hope to incorporate a diverse range of opportunities for all students that will be conducive to both academic and personal success. I am eagerly looking forward to getting started and working alongside the Student Leadership Team to ensure that everyone gets the best possible R6 experience.
