The INSPIRE programme comprises an exciting line-up of guest speakers and events throughout the year to inspire our students to broaden their horizons beyond the curriculum. 

INSPIRE introduces our Sixth Formers to all manner of opportunities for Higher Education, work experience and future careers.  It also serves to connect current and former students of Ratcliffe, drawing on the wide-ranging talents of Old Ratcliffians who generously give their time and expertise to the benefit of our students.
