Welcome to Roman Ridge School

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.
