Careers education and exposure to sixth form, college and business providers is excellent.

From an amazing choice of enrichment activities to involvement in charitable and volunteer work we aim to develop well-rounded individuals. This includes regular extra-curricular activities, in a range of subjects, day and residential experiences both in the UK and abroad, even expeditions to North Africa!

Sporting and cultural life at Ribblesdale celebrates and rewards pupils not only for their involvement in the wider life of our school, but also in our local community.
