We are Ambitious.
We are Committed.
We are Proud.

Welcome from our Headteacher

I am extremely proud to be the Head Teacher of The Ripley Academy and am absolutely committed to ensuring we provide the best quality care and education for the children of our community. All staff at The Ripley Academy are very ambitious for our students’ futures. Our aspiration for all our learners is for them to become “nothing short of remarkable”. I regularly tell the students that my hopes and dreams for them are that they can become anything they want to be and do anything they want to do; a remarkable future is all within their grasp. My vision to achieve this centres around ambition, commitment and pride. We use the tagline “We are ambitious. We are committed. We are proud” which makes up The Ripley Way.

Thank you for taking the time to look around our website and I hope you enjoy discovering more about our great school. I look forward to working with all parents and carers in order to provide the highest quality education and experience to the young people of our community.
