The long term plan of the school, to replace all wooden buildings with permanent brick structures, is well under way and should be complete within a decade.
Powerful first steps were taken with the £1.3 million construction of new dining, art, science and general teaching rooms some ten years ago. New hard netball/tennis court have been recently constructed, primarily to provide facilities for the increasing number of girls in a fully co-educational school.
The next major step was the construction of a new multi-purpose million-pound building completed in August 2013, which removed two of the older classroom blocks and replaced them with a new music studio, teaching rooms, learning support facilities and a Food Technology teaching kitchen, which adds a whole new dimension to the school.
In 2014-15 we built a new swimming pool building, and we have also been making small but significant upgrades to the site, with a new all-weather car park on the field and a re-tarring of the site to provide a safe and sure-grip surface. The adventure playground has recently been rebuilt and a protective surface laid.
In planning now for the near future are two major projects. Firstly, a multi-million pound building offering a number of classrooms, a dedicated Design Technology teaching workshop, changing rooms and more, and secondly a full-size Astroturf with lighting.
The fact that Ripley Court has been able to invest so much in the plant and structure of the school is a testament to its growing success and popularity in the West Surrey area.
