A mixed Boarding House, Ridgeway was built in 1911 by the Edwardian architect T. E. Collcutt, whose other work includes the Wigmore Hall and the Savoy Hotel. Close to the main school campus, Ridgeway overlooks protected parkland with panoramic views towards the West End of London, and enjoys picturesque grounds and extensive gardens.

Ridgeway’s prestigious alumnae include the DNA scientist Sir Francis Crick and Stan Lanevski (Viktor Krum of Harry Potter fame).

Ridgeway is a spacious House with room for 66 pupils, all of whom have study bedrooms. There are three separate common room areas, a television room, a small quiet study room, and a large games room with pool table, table-tennis table, board games and piano.

In addition, there is an inviting large kitchen with kettle, sandwich toaster, microwave, refrigerator and cooker where pupils gather to relax over hot drinks and snacks. Ridgeway girls have a separate common room on their own self-contained floor.

More important than these facilities is the strength of Ridgeway’s spirit and the open, trusting and familial ethos, which is at the heart of the house.

Ridgeway’s Housemaster, Mark Fryer, is part of the academic Mathematics team at The Mount, Mill Hill International and part of the Games department at Mill Hill and has been a Housemaster for seven years. He resides in Ridgeway and he and his residential house staff offer round-the-clock support to the Ridgeway family.
