If you’re wanting to study in the UK and looking for the best possible experience, then look no further than Ratcliffe College. Why choose us? We are based just outside the city of Leicester, in the heart of the midlands and are an independent school steeped in history and tradition. Ratcliffe College is a Catholic school that welcomes all faiths into our warm and friendly, close-knit student community.

Not only do we have first-class pastoral care, we have recently invested £10 million into our facilities including a brand new fitness suite, sports hall and music rooms which all complement our specialist tuition. We are extremely proud of our academic profile, with nearly half of our pupils achieving A*/A grades in 2019, we believe our smaller class sizes and focused support from tutors play a large part in this.

Our Co-curricular activities work hand in hand with our academic programme. We believe your child’s time here should be well rounded and skills outside the classroom are just as important as those inside. Students have the opportunity to develop new skills and find new passions and friends with similar interests.

We also provide excellent facilities both inside and outside the classroom, allowing your child to reach their potential in anything. To find out more about these topics please click below:
