School Description

Ripplevale School is for pupils who have an autism spectrum disorder. Some pupils also have other special educational needs and/or disabilities. All pupils have an education, health and care plan and are funded by their local authorities. Most members of the senior leadership team are new in post from September 2019. The former chief executive officer and business manager of Ripplevale School Limited is now head of school. Two existing teachers have been promoted to positions of deputy headteacher alongside the previous deputy. The two proprietors are also directors of Ripplevale School Limited, which exists to run Ripplevale School. The previous standard inspection took place from 31 January 2017 to 2 February 2017, when the school was graded good. Since the previous inspection, the school has ceased to offer residential provision and all pupils are day pupils. In January 2020, there was a material change inspection to increase the number on roll from 99 to 125. The school does not use any alternative provision.

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
