Founders' Day 2017

We celebrated our annual Founders' Day on 14th July, the wedding anniversary of Thomas and Julia Ripley and the date on which the foundation stone of Ripley was laid in 1856.

Senior students and staff attended a service at the Ripley Grave, followed by our Founders' Day service in the Chapel at which the Archbishop of York's Young Leaders' Award badges were awarded by The Bishop of Burnley, the Rt Revd Philip North. Our guests, many of whom were former pupils at Ripley, celebrated with afternoon tea in the canteen following the service.
