Meet our team

"Boarders are part of a strong school community which recognises their individuality and supports them to fulfil their potential. 
Managers are persistent in reviewing the well-being of boarders and achieving positive outcomes for them.
Teachers also work as house parents. This provides additional support for boarders with homework and revision. Boarders frequently commented on the positive difference this has made." 
(Outstanding boarding Ofsted report, 2017)

The comfort, wellbeing and welfare of the students in our care is central to all aspects of boarding life at Ripon Grammar School, where both staff and students share a true sense of family and community. Our professional, enthusiastic and dedicated boarding team, made up of both teaching and non-teaching staff, are on hand to support and care for our students, encouraging them to achieve their potential academically while enjoying their lives at RGS to the full.
