May I offer you a warm welcome to Ruckleigh School’s prospectus which aims to give you a flavour of life within our very special school. We've tried to provide as much information as possible but inevitably nothing matches the opportunity for you to visit us as a family, meet our pupils and experience our comfortable, happy atmosphere for yourself.

As both a parent and teacher, I understand how vital it is that a child’s formative schooling is spent in a nurturing environment where concern for others is central and children feel safe, cared for and want to come to school.  Happy children succeed and we are very proud that this success is reflected in Ruckleigh’s pupils being sought after by the leading senior independent and grammar schools in the area where our school annually achieves exceptional admission and scholarship results – a huge achievement for a non-selective school.

Ruckleigh’s pupils are encouraged, stretched and stimulated with the aim of developing well-rounded, enthusiastic learners who are keen to make a valuable contribution to their senior schools both as pupils and citizens.  No child is alike, so at all levels of their education, we aim to provide tailored support to identify their potential and maximise their opportunities to learn, succeed and shine.

It’s a privilege to be part of providing a preparatory education that provides the first, in what we hope will be a wealth of opportunities for our pupils, as they progress onto senior schools, university and exciting careers.  We aim to create happy memories of Ruckleigh and have been rewarded by many of our pupils staying in touch and keeping us up-to-date upon their amazing achievements.

As you consider where your child may start their education I hope this information will offer you an insight into what we offer and look forward to welcoming you at the school in person so you can see the school at work and play and fully appreciate the true atmosphere of our school.
