Welcome

Ripplevale School is an autism specialist school welcoming pupils aged 6 to 11 years at its Lower School campus in Broadstairs, and ages 11 to 18 years at its Upper School campus in Deal, Kent. The school provides a caring learning environment where students make meaningful progress, relative to their individual starting points. 

The staff team is passionate in their collective goal of helping students to feel safe and secure, whilst fulfilling their potential both academically and socially. Students and their needs come first; every student is truly individual and the educational setting aims to nurture those individualities and encourage students to enable them to become confident, independent and aspirational young men ready to enter into adulthood.
