The Ratcliffe College Foundation is a registered charity that works alongside the Ratcliffian Association to maintain strong links with Old Ratcliffians, parents, and friends of the College.

Our mission, through good communication, building good relationships and encouraging support of all kinds, is to assist the growth and development of the School, keeping it at the forefront of independent education in Leicestershire.

By widening access through the provision of more bursaries and by helping to support the necessary development of the school’s buildings and facilities, we want to enable students to develop to their fullest potential so they can leave the school as responsible young men and women, ready to fully participate in and influence the changing world around them.

If you would like to support our work or visit the School, do get in touch and we will be pleased to meet with you.
