Ripley St Thomas Church of England Academy
Ripley is a large school situated in beautiful grounds in the city of Lancaster. The school has a long and proud tradition, having been established as the gift of Thomas and Julia Ripley in 1864. Their spirit of adventure, philanthropy and faith is still at the core of what we do and what we offer today, over 150 years later.
Ripley St Thomas is a Voluntary-Aided comprehensive Church of England Academy opened in 1864, now with over 1700 pupils aged 11-18 on roll. Of these, approximately 380 are in the Sixth Form. The school admits 270 pupils each September. We exist to provide the best educational opportunities we can for the young people and families we are privileged to serve. At Ripley, we aim to combine our rich tradition with innovation in order to develop our young people in body, mind and spirit and equip them to be responsible members of society who will make a real difference in this world.
