A Foundation For Success

A Message From The Head

Welcome to our school website. I hope that it gives you a flavour of our vibrant and thriving school community. I feel immensely privileged to be the Headteacher of a school in which pupils are challenged and nurtured in equal measure. Here at Ribblesdale we prize the growth of positive, well-rounded citizens as highly as we do academic success, pursuing both with vigour and commitment. In our most recent inspection (February 2020), Ofsted commended our strong record of academic outcomes and rated our Personal Development provision ‘Outstanding’.

Opportunities for Ribblesdale pupils are rich and varied: our innovative use of education technology has seen us recognised as a Microsoft Academy and a Department for Education Demonstrator School and our unique Enrichment Programme helps pupils foster their talents and gain new skills and experiences, extending learning well beyond the classroom walls.

Regrettably, due to restrictions caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, in-person visits to school are not possible at the present time. Contact reception on 01200 244563 or via enquiries@ribblesdale.org to request a telephone appointment with a member of our dedicated staff team.
