The educational philosophy behind The Roman Ridge School programme is based on the pillars of Responsibility, Discipline, Excellence, Morality, Integrity, and Leadership.
Entering the Senior School marks an important stage in a student’s educational journey. Starting at Form Three, our learners are encouraged to begin working beyond their comfort zone. Lessons and topics begin to become more challenging and more demanding as the IGCSE courses are introduced. Students begin to think critically and questions become more important than answers. Indeed, it is that learning experience and the pursuit of excellence that shapes each student’s development, both in and out of the classroom.
At The Roman Ridge School, we offer a variety of opportunities outside the classroom, namely Community Service and team building activities such as Sports and Clubs. This provides students with a chance to explore their passion and find their voices in the context of a supportive and nurturing community, falling in line with our founders’ mission and vision: “To develop our children to believe in themselves by nurturing, incorporating and applying their talents, gifts, abilities, and character.”
As we progress year by year, our academic and extra-curricular programmes grow from strength to strength. We also aim to develop in our students a strong global perspective which encourages them to accept the challenge of leadership in the world beyond the school gates and we will continue to do so year in year out.

Our Senior School programme provides our adolescent students with a safe environment to fully develop their interests and grow into themselves academically and socially, under the watchful eye and strong mentorship of experienced Teachers. We support the development of identified talents & interests to a higher level and create opportunities for students to serve as good role models for younger students and impact positively on the wider community through various outreach projects and initiatives. Our students are guided to develop maturity and responsibility in all areas of life, appreciate diversity and tolerate the views and beliefs of others. We build up strong leadership skills and their ability to work well in teams, promote public speaking both in and out of the classroom and seize the opportunity to perform and share our ideas and talents through a variety of student-led events.
In the Senior School, we actively encourage each student to take responsibility for their learning and research beyond the curriculum expand key skill development and ensure in-depth knowledge and understanding across subject areas. There is a strong emphasis on critical thinking, analysis, evaluation using evidence, application, presentation, design thinking & creativity.
The Roman Ridge school is a certified Cambridge International Examinations Centre. At the end of Form 5 our students sit their IGCSE Examinations to qualify for entry into our Sixth Form College, where they will prepare to sit for AS/A Level Examinations at the end of Upper Six.
