Historic Ripon may be the third smallest city in Britain, but its home to one of the country’s best performing academies. In our last OFSTED inspection (January 2016) we were judged outstanding in all areas. Ofsted recognise that ‘Outstanding teaching is at the root of students’ excellent achievement’ and ‘the excellent behaviour of students contributes to an outstanding climate for learning’. As a Teaching School, we offer high quality support and programmes of professional development, which provide many opportunities for both NQTs and for more experienced colleagues, with scope to build a career across a range of schools. There are dedicated Directors in this curriculum area who provide subject specific CPD and in school support to ensure that quality teaching and learning leads to exceptional outcomes for all students.
