Reed’s School in Cobham has recently announced that Ripley Court Prep School will be merging with it. The two schools have worked together for many years and share a philosophy of education focussed on developing the whole child within a nurturing environment. This merger is a natural extension of this strong relationship. It will allow both schools to benefit from a combination of outstanding staff and facilities, whilst the name, identity, location, structure and admissions’ process will be retained for each school.
Reed’s will remain all-boys from 11–16, with a co-educational sixth form, and will continue to admit pupils from a wide variety of schools. Ripley Court will remain co-educational for children from three to 13 years and will continue to prepare its pupils for a wide variety of senior schools.
“Reed’s School was founded in 1813 as a school for orphan children and the central mission to support disadvantaged children has continued to this day through our Foundation. I very much look forward to working with Ripley Court to consolidate this work and take both schools forward to preserve and improve the education and opportunities for the children in our care,” says Mark Hoskins, headmaster of Reed’s School.
“I am personally delighted that we are merging into the Reed’s School family. It provides a huge opportunity for Ripley Court pupils and staff. The schools are a perfect fit in terms of ethos and approach to the education of young people,” states John Evans, chairman of governors at Ripley Court School.essence info
