About the School

Ripon Grammar School is an outstanding institution. As a co-educational state boarding and day school, Ripon Grammar School is one of a small, select group of schools. As a place of learning and as a community of individuals, it is unique. At the core of their purpose is the education of young minds to become outstanding members of the community, a community Ripon Grammar School has served since the seventh century and following our re-founding in 1555.

Set in extensive, beautiful grounds at the heart of the historic city of Ripon, Ripon Grammar School possesses a strong sense of place. Boarding inevitably contributes to the vibrant nature and diversity of the school, adding to the feeling of belonging that students so often display. With just over 900 students, Ripon Grammar School is big enough to challenge, but small enough to know each student by name and the school staff pride themselves on fostering a strong and caring school community within which every individual can thrive.

People often assume Ripon Grammar School is an independent school. It's not. Unlike private schools, Ripon Grammar School education comes free, with boarding typically costing a third of independent school fees.

Rated outstanding by Ofsted for both boarding and education, academic results and 'value added' progress are exceptionally strong at both A-level and GCSE, a testimony to both the hard work of students and the high calibre of teaching. Ripon Grammar School inspire all students to think both independently and collaboratively and the large majority leave school to pursue further study at university, many to prestigious Russell Group universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

The values of humanity, kindness and integrity are held as highly as personal responsibility, ambition and confidence and staff and pupils are proud of the rich co-curricular opportunities on offer. Exceptionally strong sport, music and drama combined with an extensive programme of activities, volunteering and outdoor trips contribute to producing well-rounded individuals ready for life beyond the classroom.

Parents are welcome to visit so that they can experience just what an exceptional place Ripon Grammar School is.
