At Ripley Court School, we teach the children to be kind, charitable citizens who are aware of the world around them. We have strong links with the community and local charities, and our motto, Non Nobis Solum (not for ourselves alone), reminds us of our commitment to those around us.
One of the charities we cooperate with is 'Together With Music'. Created by Intergenerational Music Maker (IMM), an organisation well known for their support of local nursing homes, "Together With Music" allows Ripley Court to share some well-deserved cheers, songs and music with our senior citizens residing in care homes.
The School also has close links with the local church, and we support the community by collecting food, Christmas gifts and clothes, for those less fortunate than ourselves.
Caring for the environment is a way of life at Ripley Court; the children are committed to making the world a more sustainable place. Litter picking is embedded in our school calendar, and pupils in Year 1 to 6 are invited to join 'The Green Team'. We invite speakers such as beekeepers, waste busters and heathland educators to motivate a healthy, greener way of life.

Ripley Court was rated as excellent for Pastoral Care in the 2012 ISI inspection.
"I say with full confidence that it is the best school in the locality if a parent is looking for holistic growth. There is a good sporting culture and art facilities as well. Those who excel in these fields will be supported as well as pushed to achieve more. The feel of the school is relaxed but disciplined. Children are happy and look forward to attending school. During the Covid crisis, the School supported not only children of key workers from Ripley Court but other schools in the area as well."
