Making the decision to send your child to boarding school can be a time of mixed emotions. While the geographical distance may be difficult, you recognize that this unique learning opportunity for your child sets them up to flourish now and into the future.
Ridley’s boarding experience allows your child to acquire a deeper sense of their character strengths, develop interests, gain independence and provides extra leverage when applying to university or college.
Enriched by a community of peers and adults, your child will be well-versed in a global environment that extends beyond the classroom. With over 60 nationalities represented on campus, your child will have ample opportunities to discover new cultures, while gaining a global perspective.
The well-being of your child is of the utmost importance to us. Our boarding programme ensures that each student has an established and strong relationship with their Head of House and residential life team. Our current students and alumni often say that their House is their second family. At Ridley, we strive to be a meaningful home away from home.
