Ridgewood High School opened in September on the merger of High Park School and Longlands School (former secondary modern schools), and exists within the buildings of High Park School, which were laid out some thirty years earlier.
The reorganisation of schools which saw the creation of Ridgewood was part of borough-wide changes in 1989 and 1990 which saw another new school, (Castle High), being created by a merger of two schools as well as two small secondary schools closing down.
In the autumn of 1901 , a new building was added which included a dance studio, music rooms, Science lab and ICT suites. This followed the building of an Eco-centre at the rear of the school which is used as a Science lab and a community meeting room.
Previously a foundation school administered by Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council, Ridgewood High School converted to academy status in March 2015. However the school continues to coordinate with Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council for admissions.
