About Ripon Grammar School

Ripon Grammar is a smaller than average-sized secondary school. The school selects students for entry by ability through an examination held at age 11. The vast majority of students is White British and there are very few students who are known to be eligible for free school meals, compared to national figures. Three students have a statement of educational needs and a significant minority of students has been identified by the school as having an additional learning need, within the overall intake of high-ability students. These are typically medical needs or are related to literacy difficulties. Nearly all students attend as day students, coming from the town and surrounding rural areas. There is a small boarding department comprising two boarding houses, one for boys and one for girls. Sixty-three students are boarders; of these, 11 students board termly. The school has specialist status for engineering and holds the Artsmark and Sportsmark awards, and Healthy School status.
