Students first: raising standards and transforming lives.

About the Academy

We are proud that Outwood Academy Ripon is rated Outstanding by Ofsted and we are delighted to be based in the cathedral city of Ripon, near the UNESCO World Heritage Site encompassing the magnificent Studley Royal Park, including the well-preserved Cistercian Fountains Abbey.

We are a welcoming and supportive academy, with a relentless determination to provide the very best education for every child. We place students at the centre of everything we do, with a focus on creating a culture of success and a positive climate for learning.

The Academy became part of the Outwood Family of Schools in 2011 and as a member of the Outwood Family we believe in putting Students First, raising standards and transforming lives.
