Ratcliffe College Foundation

The Ratcliffe College Foundation – Our vision for the future

This is an exciting time of change for Ratcliffe College, as we open our doors even wider with our new Preparatory School. Already this has provided us with improved facilities and bright, spacious places in which our students can learn.

The Ratcliffe College Foundation aims to ensure that we always move forward and continue to enhance the opportunities and facilities offered to all of its students.

We have ambitions to continue to develop our teaching spaces along with increasing the provision of sport, music and drama for all students at Ratcliffe.

Through the Foundation we hope that the wider Ratcliffe community – past pupils, parents, grandparents, staff and other friends of Ratcliffe – will lend their financial support and, in so doing, significantly enrich the lives of students at the College.
