Riverside School is an exciting and innovative place to be. Our pupils are highly enthusiastic, motivated learners who have high expectations and achieve a lot during their time with us.

Read our latest Ofsted report HERE.

We cater for children aged from 3+ to 11 years of age.

We aim to ensure that our pupils have the opportunity to develop physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, to the best of their capabilities.

During their time with us we hope to help each child to realise his/her maximum potential. For this to be successful, school and home must work together. We value and encourage parental involvement and look forward to working with our families.


Many useful school documents, including the school registration form, can be found under the link 'Paperwork' from the homepage.
