The Ripley Academy

Values and Ethos

The Ripley Academy is a child-centred school which, through personalisation of learning, aims to ensure that all of our students will thrive and excel within a framework of firm, fair and caring discipline.  We pride ourselves on educating the ‘whole child’; preparing our students for life in modern Britain as members of a global society.


We always seek to give our students the best opportunities and facilities; as such we have well-qualified, experienced staff who support the students as they develop their individual talents and interests.


We have great ambitions for the children of Ripley and firmly believe that a good, solid education, resulting in the best possible qualifications, will provide our young people with choices for their future.  It is our hope that students leave The Ripley Academy as confident, resilient, readily employable young adults.
