About Us

Welcome To North Ridge Community School

North Ridge Community School, part of Nexus MAT, is a special day school for pupils aged 3-19 years with severe learning difficulties; with a small cohort of Post 16 pupils being educated at our offsite provision, The Bridge. We fervently believe the children and young people are at the heart of everything we do.

North Ridge is a place where everyone feels welcome, secure and highly valued – and such is promoted through our REACH Values:


The education we provide is personalised and inclusive of everyone.

Our unique North Ridge Curriculum provides innovative opportunities, inspiring experiences and encourages our children to be learners. This is underpinned by both the Foundation Curriculum and the National Curriculum; including wider opportunities such as Forest School and Duke of Edinburgh.

It is our responsibility to work in partnership with parents to ensure our children and young people develop skills for life. We ensure every student has the best opportunities to flourish.
