Based on a beautiful, rural 200 acre site, Ratcliffe College is steeped in rich history, whilst also offering exciting new facilities as our award winning Prep School was built in 2014. Take a look below at what we have to offer and see if Ratcliffe is the perfect fit for you and your child.

Ratcliffe is a Catholic School, but inclusive of all with a real sense of community. Our approach is designed to encourage our children to express joy for life and to cherish life-long learning. The notion of encouraging big ideas is something that goes right back to our Rosminian heritage, and it sits firmly at the heart of our school today.

We provide first class teaching with our experienced members of staff, alongside outstanding pastoral care. Our small class sizes of 18 work hand in hand with these, allowing for a more intimate teaching experience and relationship with the students, both inside and outside the classroom.

Alongside our excellent academic achievements, there’s a broad range of co-curricular activities. We offer a huge number of clubs in the Preparatory School from Mad Science and Chess Club to Cross Country and Chapel Choir. When you choose Ratcliffe, you choose a varied range of activities, it’s more than school – it’s an experience!

Alongside a dedicated music room, food technology labs and sports hall, Prep School students can also benefit from the further facilities available across the whole site such as: Netball and Tennis courts, synthetic running track, astroturf pitches, swimming pool and a state of the art fitness suite.
