The Ridge Primary School
The Ridge Primary School was built in 1968 and provided education for children from 5 to 11. Prior to the opening the children from this area would have had to attend either Gig Mill or Meadow Park or the Junior School in the village. The building is at the top of Gregory Road and in the top left corner of the photo there is High Park Avenue and in the bottom right some of the buildings of what was then High Park Secondary School can be seen.
The first headteacher was Harold Hoyle who retired in 1975. He was succeeded by Mike Cruise who left in 1998. The next head was Grahame Robinson and when he left in 2003 Deb Hudson was appointed and is still in the post in 2012.
