Headteacher’s welcome

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our Ratton School website, and I hope by visiting us virtually you will get a real flavour of what life and learning is like at our fantastic school.


At Ratton School everything we do is centred on developing our young people to become confident, creative and caring students who achieve excellence in everything they do. Be it academically, or socially, our aim is to enable our students to grow and flourish and achieve all their potential. This means educating the whole child and giving them the skills to take the next steps on their journey when they leave us to attend further education or training, and then into the right career.

We are proud of our broad and balanced curriculum, which enables students of all talents and interests to find a pathway that suits them. We aim to instill a lifelong love of learning and an appreciation that knowledge is worthwhile in itself. We are also incredibly proud of the opportunities that our talented, dedicated and expert staff provide for our young people through our extensive extracurricular programme of activities. There truly is something on offer for everyone to enjoy at Ratton School.

We have high expectations of our students and expect them to behave in a compassionate and respectful manner, and to actively engage in their learning throughout the whole school day. In this way all the school community works together to create a calm and ordered environment where every individual student can thrive. We aim to develop our students’ awareness of the wider community, to engage with the world outside of the school walls, and to develop as global citizens.

We also understand, more now than ever, the importance of emotional health and wellbeing and work with our students to give them the tools to build their own mental and physical health and wellbeing.

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you enjoy learning more about life at Ratton School, and please do not hesitate to get in touch if you wish to find out more about our unique and welcoming school.
