STEM ambassadors Alex and Gemma Ridgway visit the Design Technology department to inspire the next generation of Engineers


On Thursday 6th July ex students  and siblings Alex and Gemma Ridgway gave up time from their busy schedules to inspire the next generation of Engineers at Aylsham High School. Both Alex and Gemma studied Design Technology at Aylsham High School going on to gain employment as apprentice engineers with National Grid. They are now enjoying exciting and rewarding careers with their work taking them far and wide.

It was remarkable to hear about their experiences since leaving school and the excellent training opportunities they have taken up on their pathway to becoming fully qualified engineers.

Thank you both for making the time to help guide Aylsham High School students on their paths to successful futures.


Mr L Whiting-Smith

Head of Design Technology
