Ratcliffe College Nursery School

Founder Antonio Rosmini was renowned as an educational innovator and that spirit has propelled the College forward ever since. The College ‘Victorian Gothic' buildings were designed by Augustus Welby Pugin, who co-operated with Sir Charles Barry on the design of the Houses of Parliament. The buildings have been continuously added to, a process which continues today, preserving the glories of the old buildings whilst adding the modern teaching and boarding accommodation our students now require.

Co-education was a major milestone in the development of the College. Girls were admitted to the Sixth Form in 1977 and full co-education was introduced in 1984. One of the greatest strengths of Ratcliffe College is that it provides the expertise and resources to enable boys and girls to fulfil their potential in all aspects of their education. The College places great emphasis on the development of the whole person.
