Your child may wish to spend a Taster Day at Ratcliffe on a normal school day either prior to taking the Entrance Examination or Assessment or after being offered a place with us. We find this works very well in terms of each child becoming familiar with the school grounds and classrooms, the daily schedule, the content of lessons and how they are delivered, the personalities of teachers and children at the school and generally the overall culture of the school.
Children applying for a boarding place are also welcome to stay overnight as part of their taster visit. This way, if there are any concerns, questions or special requirements that come up, there are no surprises when the pupil comes to join us full-time. We can accommodate needs as much as possible and ensure each child feels confident and excited to join our happy, caring and enthusiastic community.
Simply click ‘book now’ and provide as much detail as possible for your visit, we will then get in touch with your personally to arrange a time that suits everyone.
