Ripon Grammar named among top sporting schools in England Ripon Grammar School has been named one of the best schools in the country for sporting achievement. School Sport Magazine has ranked it in the top 200 out of more than 4,000 schools surveyed nationally. One of only 84 in the state sector – the top 2.5 per cent - to make the cut, RGS is now placed in the top five per cent of all sporting schools in England. Director of sport Adam Milner said:

“Congratulations to all the students involved, it’s a wonderful achievement and a reflection and celebration of how much effort they put into their sport, and of the dedication and hard work of our staff.”
Holding its own against the many elite independent top-flight sporting schools on the prestigious annual list, RGS earned praise for a series of outstanding sporting performances throughout 2023. This is the first time the school, ranked 116th, has made it into the Top 200 list, based on performance in 20 sports across more than 120 national competitions. It follows a remarkable year of national and regional successes in a range of sports, including athletics, cricket, cross country, football, netball, hockey, rugby and swimming. Mr Milner pointed out that schools on the list usually have to make the later stages of several national competitions. He said:
“We are extremely proud and look forward to building on this success, while ensuring that all students continue to enjoy the wide range of wonderful sporting opportunities available at RGS.”
