Ripon Grammar School

We are delighted to have retained The Sunday Times ‘Top-performing school in  the North’ title for the last seven years.

One of the oldest grammar schools in the country and  one of the top state boarding schools in the UK, Ripon Grammar School is set in beautiful grounds at the heart  of the small cathedral city  of Ripon in the stunning  Yorkshire Dales.

“Choosing to board at Ripon Grammar School is the best decision I ever made.”

Large enough to challenge but small enough to know every student by name, we pride ourselves on fostering a strong, caring school community within which every individual can thrive – in and out of the classroom.

Both our boarding and education are rated outstanding by Ofsted, and we are also in the top 2% of UK state schools for pupil progress. At RGS, education comes free, so boarding typically costs only a third of independent school fees. Five miles from the A1 and 23 miles from Leeds Bradford Airport, London is just over two hours away by train from nearby Thirsk. Do come and visit. A warm Yorkshire welcome awaits you.
