Welcome to our Senior School

Our school is far more than just a place for our students to learn – it is a ‘time’ in their lives. Here at Ratcliffe College we strive to ensure that all our students can look back on their school days with pride and happiness. In the 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 rigour. Our curriculum is complemented by a rich and exciting programme of co-curricular activities, helping every student to develop his/her all-round talents and skills, helping students to achieve Strength of Mind.

I am privileged to lead such a vibrant community that is committed to the all-round education of each individual child as a thorough preparation for life.

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, inspiring them to develop Strength of Values. 

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, which enables students to attain Strength of Purpose.
