What the school says...
There can be few schools which offer girls and boys such a breadth of education in the real sense, from academic excellence to success on the sports field, with so many opportunities to develop young people through music, drama and a plethora of other activities.
Ratcliffe’s core Catholic ethos, drawing upon its distinctive Rosminian heritage, is at the very heart of everything within the School and is widely proclaimed by parents as being the central strand of what has made the School the success that it is today. Fully inclusive in approach, the school seeks to nurture, develop and celebrate the gifts and talents of all of its students, regardless of background, as they develop into happy, respectful and caring young adults.
The School occupies a beautiful, rural location within 200 acres of rolling countryside, just a few miles north of Leicester. Easy to get to, Ratcliffe provides a totally self-contained campus with modern teaching facilities, elegant buildings, and full on-site sporting facilities. Most recently, a new £4.5 million Preparatory School building was opened.
The development of the all-round potential of each student is our priority, with the happiness and academic achievement of students central to our work. Public Examination results at all levels reflect the continued and on-going successes in this area. The vast majority of students go onto their first choice of university, most being Russell Group universities, including Oxbridge.
Alongside our provision for day students, boarding is also thriving within the School, with full, weekly and occasional options all used extensively.
The School was awarded "Excellent" in all nine categories at its ISI inspection in March 2015.
