The educational philosophy behind The Roman Ridge School programme is based on the pillars of Responsibility, Discipline, Excellence, Morality, Integrity, and Leadership.
At The Roman Ridge School we aim to offer our children the highest quality of education in Accra based on the British Preparatory & Public School system, whilst being firmly rooted in Ghanaian life and culture. As an Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) endorsed school, we are proud to offer our children an education that complies with the British Government’s Standards for British Overseas Schools.
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, our children 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 their 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 are encouraged to develop into individuals, who welcome new experiences and engage new interests. With a first class educational programme in place, pupils 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:
A five member Board of Directors administers the school. The Board appoints an Executive Director and the Principal and entrusts to them the day-to-day administration of the school. The Roman Ridge School Board comprises of highly accomplished and respected individuals, and as a result, the school benefits from the diverse backgrounds, leadership, and experiences of these individuals.
The Board of Directors further appoints an Academic Board of Governors to oversee the academic programme of the school and work in tandem with the Principal and her Academic Team.
From the time the children enter the school they are taught from the English National Curriculum and the English Preparatory Schools Curriculum. Courses on the school’s programme include English, Mathematics, Science, French, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Computer Awareness, Music, Physical Education, and Art & Drama. A full programme of diagnostic testing is also available to all children. This gives teachers and parents an insight into the children’s strengths or weaknesses. Once established, extra attention must be given to the areas where it is most needed.
