Sixth form boarding

Every year, there are a number of new places available for sixth form boarders joining Ripon Grammar School from other schools. Students join RGS from schools in North Yorkshire and beyond and a number boarders have families living overseas. The school is a selective co-educational grammar school with boarding which makes it one of a small select group of schools in the country.

Sixth former Poppy talks about how she benefitted from moving from Italy to board and study at RGS. Click on the play button below to hear what else she has to say:

Our boarders comprise Ripon Grammar students moving up to sixth form – some of whom have boarded before and others who have opted to board only for their final years – and students joining RGS in the sixth form having spent their education to date at other schools. Most are attracted by our outstanding results and broad range of extra curricular opportunities. For many, boarding also offers an extremely valuable opportunity to experience living away from home as an independent young adult, helping the transition to university in two years’ time. A unique opportunity to join a state boarding school in North Yorkshire.
