Ripon Grammar School is a selective, co-educational state boarding school for pupils with families based in the UK or overseas.
Ripon Grammar School has two boarding houses - one for girls (Johnson House) and one for boys (School House). Each house can accommodate 50 boarders. Students board weekly (Monday - Friday) or termly, staying at school at weekends. Boarders have to fulfil the same academic criteria as day students. At Year 7 there are 14 places reserved for boarders and at Year 9 there are 4 places reserved. At Year 12 the only limit to the number of boarding places that can be offered is capacity in boarding accommodation. Boarding places may be available through In-Year testing, dependant on whether there is a day place available and whether there is spare accommodation in the boarding house.
Applicants for boarding must have either a current full British citizen passport or an EU/EEA passport, and will be required to provide a photocopy of the identification page in the passport, showing the prospective student's photograph. The name, address and contact details of a legal guardian resident in the United Kingdom is also 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. All boarders pay a bond of £1750, which is refundable at the end of their academic education here.
