Ridgeway Education Trust is a multi-academy trust (MAT) which currently comprises two secondary schools, Didcot Girls’ School and St Birinus School, with a joint Sixth Form.

Didcot Girls’ School is an Outstanding school, as confirmed by Ofsted in its most recent inspection of the school in November 2015. The school has a commitment to the very highest standards in everything that it does and is an exciting and happy school where real attention is given to professional development and staff wellbeing. St Birinus School was judged to be a Good school by Ofsted in March 2016 and aspires to become outstanding. The school has a strong sense of identity, a tangible ethos and a vibrancy which visitors always comment upon.

Both schools are unique as the only single sex state schools in Oxfordshire and share the same strong values of high quality teaching and learning and respectful relationships within an inclusive learning community.
