Woodridge Primary School opened in May 1967 to serve the community of Woodside Park and Totteridge. Our name 'Wood-Ridge' is a combination of these two places. A campaign to build the school began in 1962 when local residents wrote to the council because there were not enough places in other local schools. When the school opened in May 1967 there were only 14 pupils. This grew to 148 pupils in September with separate classes for Reception Class, Year 1, 2 and 3 and a mixed class of children from Years 4, 5 and 6. Today, the school has 210 pupils across seven classes. Woodridge was built on former farmland with views across the Totteridge Valley to Mill Hill with the Woodridge Nature Reserve adjoining the school grounds.
