Accepting day students from the age of 11 and boarders from 16, the focus is on exam success in a lively, supportive and informal atmosphere. Students are encouraged to be themselves and achieve exam results that often exceed their expectations.

RIC is accredited by the ISC (Independent Schools Council) and a member of the Independent Schools Association.
