At The Roman Ridge School we aim to offer your child the highest quality of education in Accra based on the British Preparatory & Public School system, whilst being firmly rooted in Ghanaian life and culture. The educational philosophy behind The Roman Ridge School programme is based on the pillars of Responsibility, Discipline, Excellence, Morality, Integrity, and Leadership, and, is centred on a solid foundation of Christian values. Through the school’s unique course of study and extra-curricular programmes, your child will be exposed to a world-class learning environment, learn from a diverse group of pupils and staff, and graduate as a well educated individual armed with the skills, knowledge, discipline and character to tackle and excel in the subsequent phases of his/her education, and life. The mission of the school is to develop its pupils to believe in themselves by nurturing and developing, incorporating and applying their talents, gifts, abilities and character. Pupils will be encouraged to develop into individuals, who welcome new experiences and engage new interests. With a first class educational programme in place, pupils will benefit immensely from their years at The Roman Ridge School, and will, one day, make a significant impact in the world and lives of those who come across them.
Based on the firm belief that every child is an individual with the potential for excellence, we have instituted the following measures to guarantee the successful delivery for our educational programme:
Small Class Sizes
Maximum of 20 pupils; this affords the Form Tutor the opportunity to develop each and every child to their full potential. However, for our IGCSE & A Level year groups, class size may be as much as 20.
Individual Pupil Attention
Every child will receive individual attention to enhance the development of their character and abilities.
Highly Qualified and Dedicated Staff
The school has recruited some of the finest Ghanaian teachers available, complemented by an experienced multi-national staff.
A Full Programme of Sport & Extra Curricular Activities
The school is a strong believer that a Healthy Body makes for a Healthy Mind, and, to that end will introduce your child to a wide range of sports and activities, including all major sports and climbing, canoeing, swimming, orienteering, snorkelling, karate, ballet, polo and many more. All activities are carefully monitored with safety being paramount.
Pupil, Teacher, Parent Interaction
This is vital to the success of our programme, and, to this end, the Principal spearheads the development of the school’s PTA.
We strongly believe in the value of discipline in the lives of our pupils. We do not employ corporal punishment. We prefer to opt for an innovative system of merits & demerits to both discipline and reward our pupils.
We develop in our pupils a sense of respect and responsibility towards each other and towards adults alike. This is very necessary particularly at a time when modern standards appear to be slipping.
A Sound Christian Framework
We hold a short morning service each day, and although we adhere to Christian principles, we gladly welcome children of all faiths and pursue a multi-faith religious studies programme.
A Caring Environment
Pastoral Care is in the hands of the Principal and the teaching staff, with a resident nurse taking care of the children’s medical needs.
Educational Career Choices
The school runs a comprehensive IGCSE & A Level programme, hereby offering you the option of keeping your child in Ghana whilst enjoying a first class education. We also maintain a strong link with many Preparatory and Public Schools in the UK and are able to offer advice and assistance to you when choosing this educational path.
A Solid Ghanaian Cultural Base
We aim to educate our pupils in our rich cultural heritage and encourage them to respect and value our traditional beliefs.
