Coordinator’s Message

Welcome to Ridgeway Grammar Schools, situated in the heart of both Kampala and Wakiso districts. The schools’ purpose is to educate pupils of the world to take their productive place as leaders in the global community by offering our learners a comprehensive education from Nursery to Primary seven. We are a caring community where pupils’ needs are a priority and where traditional Ugandan and modern  educational values are respected and encouraged to coexist. Ridgeway grammar offers secondary preparatory programmes aiming to provide a challenging academic environment emphasising learning, as well as social and personal growth. 

As the new coordinator of Ridgeway grammar Schools, I am delighted that the schools’ values align with my own personal values, including the importance of trust, respect, innovation and a sense of community.

Shk Shabaan – coordinator Ridgeway grammar schools 

I know that the development of the school over the past few years has been significant. The future will build on these firm foundations focusing on the quality of school life, especially for the benefit of our learners. Buildings have been renovated and high-quality teachers recruited. 

The curriculum emphasises the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities for all learners attending our schools. We believe that every learner is unique and special and that they all have the ability to learn. We believe it is our responsibility as teachers to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life.  Learners are continually encouraged to appreciate our diverse community and to care for others by becoming global citizens, and develop a concern and active respect for the environment.

At Ridgeway grammar, the educational community strives for excellence by preparing students for learning beyond their school years and assisting them to become lifelong learners, as well as helping them to be self-directed, realistic, and responsible decision makers when solving problems that they will encounter in our multicultural, ever-changing world. Ultimately, each learner will gain from their life at school according to the effort they apply.

At Ridgeway, we strongly believe in the importance of teachers, parents, and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. We continually improve the quality of tools of communication, including giving our parents access to an interactive website like this one where you can post your comments. You are encouraged to regularly check our website and read about our exciting academic and co-curricular activities. We look forward to serving you and your children over the coming years. Interested parents are encouraged to contact our school and to ask any questions they may have regarding our schools and the programmes we offer by using contacts on this website.
