The Ridge College position in relation to the Coronavirus

19th March Coronavirus Message

As we all watch and wait with regards the extraordinary challenges we are facing at this time I wanted to reassure families that the college remains open for our vulnerable learners.

The staff are working very hard to ensure that we continue to offer the support our learners need.  I want to thank the Ridge staff and families collectively for the huge efforts that are being taken at this time.

To ensure the college remains a safe place for learners and staff, can I ask that everyone observes the information about the symptoms of the virus and how to prevent the spread of the infection.  If you need more information please visit,

All necessary measures are being taken in college to protect learners and staff at this time.  I am requesting that anyone with a temperature or a new a persistent cough does not attend college to minimise the risk of infection. If anyone requires further information please contact the college 01302 897445.

Thank you for your continued support.

Melanie Atkin

Head of College
