Welcome to Ridgeway Primary Academy.


Welcome to the website for Ridgeway Primary Academy based in South Shields. We are delighted to introduce our website and hope you enjoy having a look around.


We are so proud of Ridgeway and the journey we have been on. Ridgeway is now classed as a 'Good' school by Ofsted (November 2016) and have seen results improve dramatically. Our progress in writing is the best in the whole country (over 22,000 schools) and our reading and maths progress is in the top 1% of the country.


We also make sure we cater for children who have the potential to achieve top results with the highest % of children achieving a higher standard in KS2 in the whole of South Tyneside being at Ridgeway.


I urge you to come and meet us and have a look around our wonderful school. I really look forward to meeting you.



“The essence of Ridgeway is to do our best so that we can be outstanding”


Mr. M McCarthy – Head Teacher
