Boarding Admissions

Ripon Grammar School is a selective, co-educational state boarding school for pupils with families based in the UK or overseas.

Ripon Grammar is a selective school and boarders take the same entrance exams as other pupils. In each year group, 14 places are reserved for boarders and those not taken up are then made available to day pupils.

Applicants for boarding must have a current full British citizen passport or EU passport and provide a photocopy of the identification page in the passport showing the prospective pupil’s photograph.

The name, address and telephone number of a legal guardian resident in the United Kingdom is required. This person is responsible for the applicant whilst at school and during holiday periods.

Boarders only pay boarding fees - there are no tuition fees. Sixth form applicants pay a non-refundable £50 registration fee as part of their application.

Students board weekly (Monday-Friday) or termly, staying at school at weekends.
