About Us

The Ripley Academy opened on Monday 8th September 2014 as a brand new entity as part of the East Midlands Education Trust. The Trust currently has four schools in the East Midlands, the West Bridgford School, South Wolds Academy School & Sixth Form, The Kimberley School, John Flamsteed Community School, Joseph Whittaker School and The Ripley Academy.


Our aim is to widen the horizons of young people through opportunity, challenge and achievement, and inspire in them an excitement for life-long learning. Our school provides a safe, happy and orderly environment with a strong code of values.


We hope that these web pages will give you insight into our learning community, and provide details on how you also can be involved more in the education of children.
