At Ratcliffe Senior School, our passionate and dedicated staff ensure a smooth transition at whatever stage you begin your journey with us, whether you are moving from our own Preparatory School, a local School or, perhaps, another country!

In our Senior School, you will find a culture that supports and achieves academic success. Our curriculum is complemented by a rich and exciting programme of co-curricular activities, helping every student to develop their all-round talents and skills.

Students receive outstanding pastoral care and guidance, within a community that practises a universality of warmth and respect. Our students clearly love being here and look after one another, enjoying all the positive benefits of a co-educational environment where happiness is key to the students’ success.

We offer a 3 year GCSE programme for all pupils in Year 9, this will provide the opportunity to go deeper into the content of each subject, with a broader learning experience, whilst also providing more time for individuals to prepare for assignments and examinations.

Our strong sense of traditional family values is tangible at all levels, from the thriving boarding community to our students’ work within both local and international communities.
