Meet our team

"Staff have an excellent understanding of the wide range of boarders’ individual needs and ensure these are prioritised. Boarders appreciate the difference the school makes to their education and like having teachers who also work as house parents, providing additional support with homework and revision. Boarders are part of a strong school community which recognises their individuality and supports them to fulfil their potential." (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.
