Sixth Form Information Evening

We hold a Sixth Form Information Evening every November, for entry into Year 12 in the following September.  If, in the meantime, you wish to have a Personal Visit, please see below.

Personal Visit

However, you are also welcome to visit us, with your son or daughter on a normal school day.  By arranging a Personal Visit, you will have a tour of the School, accompanied by one of our Sixth Form students, and an individual meeting with either the Head of our Preparatory School, Fr Cann, or the Headmaster, Mr Reddin.  If you would like to arrange a Personal Visit, please contact our Admissions Department on +44 (0) 1509 817031 / 817072 or at

Taster Day

Would your son or daughter like to know what it’s like to experience a typical school day at Ratcliffe College?  Then arrange a Taster Day!  Your son or daughter would attend normal school lessons and get a good indication of whether they feel Ratcliffe College is the right school for them.  A Taster Day can be arranged either prior to taking the Entrance Examinations/Assessments or after being offered a place.  Children applying for a Boarding place are also welcome to stay overnight as part of their taster visit.

To arrange a Taster Day, please contact our Admissions Department.
