Welcome to Ripon Cathedral School

At Ripon Cathedral School we are in the process of writing the arrangements for the start of term September 2021. We will inform parents via email and by posting guidance on the school website (during the week before children return to school) once we are confident that the guidance we have received from the Department for Education and the Local Authority, are final for the start of the new school year.

We are confident that the start and end times for the school will return to pre-pandemic timings as from 7th September 2021.

Doors will open for children in Reception - Year 6 at 8.45am 

Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 will finish at 3.10pm 

Children in Key Stage 2 will finish at 3.15pm


It has always been our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. We would like to take this opportunity to remind parents of uniform expectations so that families can ensure that children are suitably attired for their return in September.


Children should bring trainers for PE and running the mile, however we do expect children to wear suitable black shoes for school.

PE Kit

Governors have recently reviewed the school's uniform policy and it has been agreed to change the colour of PE shorts from white to black. As a school we do not expect families to have to replace perfectly good shorts, however we do ask that when you are replenishing kit that you ensure that children have a plain white polo shirt and black shorts.

Uniform Expectations

An overview of uniform expectations can be accessed via the link below and our full uniform policy can be found on our school website.
