Welcome to our website.

I hope you find the information on it useful and it gives you a flavour of the school. I am privileged and proud to be the headteacher of Ribblesdale and am committed to building on the strengths of our school and delivering a world-class education for all who attend. At Ribblesdale we have very high expectations for both students and staff and believe fervently in a team approach; with parents, pupils and the school working closely together. The school is strongly rooted in its local community and enjoys the benefits this gives in many areas of school life.

Our mission is to provide a challenging but nurturing environment for young people; promoting their social, moral, intellectual and personal development and ensuring they are equipped with the skills, knowledge and resilience to be successful in adult life. I believe Ribblesdale offers young people a unique balance of academic challenge and personal support, alongside a wealth of opportunities.

As well as ensuring pupils are equipped for the increasingly digital world and the demands of 21st century, we also place a strong emphasis on instilling the traditional values of good manners, respect and courtesy. I hope you find this website useful however sometimes, there is no substitute for seeing the school in reality, if would like to visit us and see the school in action please feel free to contact us and arrange a tour.
