Outwood Academy Ripon is a small Academy located in the beautiful City of Ripon close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. We are extremely proud of our tradition in serving the families of the community of Ripon through delivering a fantastic all round education. We took the decision to join the nationally renowned Outwood Grange Family of Schools in 2010 and we have achieved outstanding results and progress for our students. In our last Ofsted inspection, January 2016, we were judged to be an ‘Outstanding’ School in all four of the major categories.

Information for former students collecting Examination Certificates

Please be informed Examination certificates are now available for collection for Year 11 students who left in the Summer 2017. Certificates can be collected between the hours of 9.00am and 4.00pm from the main reception. Please call in advance before collection.
Students must bring identification with them upon collection.
If a student cannot collect their certificates personally, a representative can collect them on their behalf but they must provide the following documentation:
• A signed letter of authorisation from the student
• A copy of their own I.D
It is extremely important that certificates are collected as they are required for Higher Education and workplaces often request them.

Literacy in the Academy

“Word of the Week” is part of the Academy’s ongoing strategy to improve students’ literacy. Students are being taught the importance of language and the need for a good vocabulary, both for their school work and as an essential life skill. There is an Academy W.O.W. which is displayed around school and on the website, and its use is reinforced by VMG tutors and in school assemblies. The word will link to the assembly topic for that week and is designed to make students confident in their use of a range of complex words and their meanings.

“As vocabulary is reduced, so are the number of feelings you can express, the number of events you can describe, the number of the things you can identify. Man grows by language.” – Sheri S. Tepper

E- Safety

Learning about staying safe online is very important. At Outwood Academy Ripon we make sure our students are aware of the risks to safety that are online and what to do to stay safe.

We are committed to improving E-Safety not only in school but at home as well.
