Ridgeway will follow government policy of offering the E-Bacc which means all pupils must take the following subjects: English, maths, history OR geography, the sciences and a language. More information on the E-Bacc can be found at https://www.gov.uk/english-baccalaureate-information-for-schools

As with any school, the delivery of subjects outside the E-Bacc are liable to change dependent on pupil choice and government policy.
