Ripon Grammar School

Ripon Grammar School is an outstanding, selective, co-educational state school with boarding accommodation for up to one hundred students, making us unique in Yorkshire and one of a small, select group of schools in the country. The school is forward-looking with state-of-the-art facilities, complementing a spacious green field site on the outskirts of the city. I hope you will be able to visit us and see for yourself the strong sense of community which is such a feature of Ripon Grammar School.

Set in the beautiful Cathedral city of Ripon in the Yorkshire Dales, Ripon Grammar School has been educating children from North Yorkshire and beyond for more than 450 years.
