Welcome to Ripplevale School

We provide a caring learning environment where our students

make meaningful progress.

We are an independent specialist school for boys aged 6 to 18 years old.

Our focus is on boys who have been diagnosed as being on the Autistic spectrum with associated conditions. Our school is located in the village of Ripple near Deal in Kent.

We have a dedicated and committed team of teachers and support staff and we take pride in providing an appropriate school environment where our pupils can learn and develop.


At Ripplevale School we believe that different thinking is needed to improve the lives of our pupils and their families. This thinking starts right here in our Primary department...


We know that the key to academic success is for a student to feel secure and valued first and foremost. We therefore take a holistic approach, combining therapy with a full curriculum to give our students support in whichever areas they need...


Our aim is for every one of our pupils to leave Ripplevale School as independent and socially competent adults. To enable this, Post-16 provides a bespoke curriculum tailored to students’ individual needs...
