Ripon Grammar School

Co-educational boarding and day

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 historic 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 delighted to have retained The Sunday Times’s ‘Top performing state school in the North’ title for the last six years. We are also in the top 2% of UK state schools for pupil progress from age 11-16. 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.

"Ripon Grammar School is a ‘can do, will do’ school, with friendly, courteous, articulate and insightful students who are confident, without being arrogant, and have a real pride in their school." Good Schools Guide
