Mr Watkins, a representative from St James' Place Foundation came to the Ridge Academy on 4th February 2014 to present us with a cheque for £10,000!  This grant is for a wonderful art project to be run by a local art therapist from September 2014 as a joint project for pupils and parents.  The art work done by the participants will be supported by a visit to a local gallery for inspiration and will conclude with an exhibition hosted by the pupils and parents themselves in June 2015.  Mr Watkins was welcomed by pupils from the school and enjoyed a guided tour around the classrooms to see all the excellent work going on at the Ridge.
