Ethos & Spiritual Dimension

Ensuring spirituality features in all aspects of school life

At Ripley we have a deep sense of Christian community; this is expressed not only in the way we live out our lives together but in our corporate worshipping life. Pupils and staff begin each day with an act of collective worship in our school chapel and special services are held throughout the year to celebrate the Christian festivals.

In view of the Christian foundation of the school, the governors expect that in choosing the school parents thereby commit their child to taking a full part in the RE and worshipping life of the school.

Our Vision and Values

As a Christian community, we aim to provide an education which enables all members of our Ripley family to flourish academically, personally and spiritually. Through acts of faith, hope and love, we encourage our young people to live well, to serve others, and to make a difference in the world.

‘And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.’
1 Corinthians 13: 13
