Welcome to Ranelagh School

We are always prepared to rise to new challenges and take the school forward for the benefit of all our students.

We are proud of our excellent reputation, our traditions, our academic, sporting, creative and artistic achievements as well as the quality of guidance and pastoral care.  We are delighted our achievements and standards of excellence have been recognised at national level by prestigious awards.  The school has received three outstanding OFSTED reports and Ranelagh is identified in the Annual Report of Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector as a ‘particularly successful school’.  We are a High Performing Specialist School with specialisms in Visual Arts, Business and Enterprise and Mathematics and Computing.  The school has held the Investors in People Award for many years and also holds the National Healthy Schools Standard.  We have also recently been authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School.

The most important people in the school are our students and we are privileged to work with such a dynamic community of young people who are totally involved in leading and managing aspects of the school.
