Open Evening for September 2025 intake

Our Open Evening for Year 7 intake 2025 will be held on Thursday 4 July 2024, between 6pm and 8.30pm. We are looking forward to showing you all that Ripley has to offer and meeting prospective parents and pupils.

Our Headteacher, Mr Goddard, will give Keynote talks in the Chapel at 6.00 pm and 7.30 pm, and in the Phythian Hall at 6.45 pm. We will have hundreds of pupil and student helpers which really help to make the evening, as visitors will be given personal tours around departments.
We are offering something slightly different this year as we are also inviting Year 10 pupils from local schools to come along and look around the Sixth Form Centre, chat with staff and get a feel of life in Ripley Sixth Form. Our own Year 10 pupils will be having a Taster Day in Sixth Form before the end of term too. The Sixth Form Open Evening will be held in November 2024.
The video below was produced for a Virtual Open Evening in 2020 but as they say, there is no substitute for the real thing, so come along and enjoy our lovely grounds and school – not to mention the farm!
Apologies but there will be no parking on site during the evening.


The Admissions Policy below  gives full details of our admissions criteria and how they are applied.
