Ridge View is an all age foundation special school for children with Profound, Severe and Complex learning difficulties, many of whom are on the Autistic Spectrum. Ridge View is the District Special School for Tonbridge and Malling and has places for up to 120 pupils aged 2 to 19 years old.


Ridge View is located in North Tonbridge and sits on the same site as a mainstream primary and secondary school. Our specialist pre-school provision (Oakridge) is based on our site as is the 14-19 Department. Our traditionally built school has a range of facilities including multi sensory rooms, soft play room, food technology room, therapy rooms, hydro therapy pool and grassy play areas.


The school was inspected by Ofsted in June 2015 and was found to be an outstanding school. “Pupils make outstanding progress in English and mathematics. A big majority of pupils make or exceed the progress that is expected of them. Overall pupils achieve better than pupils of the same age and starting points in other schools. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding and they have an excellent attitude to their work. There is outstanding practice for ensuring pupils' safety and welfare." Ofsted 2015

I hope that the website captures the spirit of Ridge View and provides you with useful information but I would urge you to come and visit us to experience for yourself the quality of education given to all of our children and the unique atmosphere of our school.
