Ripley Court School is a popular, independent, co-educational preparatory school for 3-13 year olds set in 19 acres of beautiful Surrey countryside including extensive playing fields and a Forest School.

• Lead the school through a period of change in a rapidly-shifting educational landscape.

• Build on and extend the school’s reputation for providing a well-rounded education and exceptional care for every pupil.

• Develop the opportunities provided by the merger with Reed’s School to improve areas of the school as well as share expertise, facilities and resources.
