Outstanding contribution recognised on Founders' Day at Ripley St Thomas C of E Academy

Ripley St Thomas School was opened on July 14 1864.  The School celebrated its 156th birthday on Tuesday.  Due to the current ongoing restrictions, Ripley was unable to have its usual Founders' Day celebrations but a special event was held instead to celebrate the outstanding contribution made by four members of staff during the time of the Pandemic.  

Vicki Bell, Mark Bush, Chris Hale and Steve Walton have embodied the Ripley spirit over these past months and have gone the extra mile in a whole range of ways to keep the school going and to support our local community and local NHS.

Vicki, Mark, Chris and Steve were presented with a Ripley Medal by Mrs Garnett, Chair of Governors, in honour of their dedication and their contribution.

Well done to them all!!
