Ratcliffe College is a private school in Leicestershire founded in 1847 by the Institute of Charity. Founder Antonio Rosmini was renowned as an educational innovator and that spirit has propelled the College forward ever since.
Our vision is to educate young people in the spirit of the Gospel and the traditions of the Catholic Church, seeking to nurture the God-given talents and potential of each individual so that each one may become a confident, responsible and useful member of society.
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. Academic achievement will always be paramount, but personal fulfilment and growth through a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities are also of fundamental importance.
