About Us

Green Ridge Academy is a new primary school built on Berryfields, which opened in September 2017 in temporary accommodation on the site of the permanent building.  The permanent school building opened in September 2018.  The academy currently has two Nursery classes, two Reception classes, two Year One classes, two Year Two classes and a Year Three and Year Four class.  The school will grow year-on-year, taking children from aged 2-11.  The school will initially have a capacity for over 450 children but is built with the additional capacity to extend to a three-form entry school with just over 650 children.

The academy is now looking to appoint additional staff to meet the needs of the children within the academy in its brand-new building.  You will be part of the team which has the unique opportunity to build and grow the school from its infancy.  There is no doubt about it, setting up the academy from scratch will take vision, dedication and hard-work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding to see the academy take shape over the next few years.  To see more information about the school, including design plans of the school, please visit our website
