Education

Here in Ribble Valley we are able to boast well performing schools with progress and attainment well above the national average.

Catering for all life stages and covering a wide range of provider types, we feel sure that you’ll find the right education provider for you and your family here in the borough.

Many of the schools in Ribble Valley are maintained by Lancashire County Council. However, they do not maintain Academies and Free Schools, Independent schools or Independent and non-maintained special schools.

For help in informing your search for the right school for your family, take a look at the independent guidance on the borough’s schools through the full inspection reports on the OFSTED website.

Want to find information from those who already have experience of many of the borough’s schools, then why not read the reviews on Parent View. Parent View gives parents the chance to tell Ofsted what they think about their child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.

You can also compare the borough’s various schools against each other on such items as Progress 8 and Attainment 8 Scores for secondary schools and for Primary schools Reading, Writing and Maths Progress Scores.
