About Winterbourne International Academy

Mr Evans

Specialising in Mathematics and Modern Foreign Languages.

Welcome to Winterbourne International Academy, an 11-18 co-educational Academy with a fantastic local and regional reputation for academic and extra-curricular excellence. The Academy, previously known as Ridings High School, forms part of The Ridings’ Federation of Academies.

From September 2014, students will be greeted by a stunning new building and first-rate facilities. Almost £20 million has been invested into replacing the majority of the existing buildings to transform the learning environment for our students.

The whole site will revolve around a central, open-plan core building incorporating a new auditorium, learning resource centre, canteen and classroom learning facilities. Click here to find out more about the new build
