About Risedale School

Risedale School is a smaller than the average sized secondary school and currently has 560 pupils aged 11-16 years. It enjoys an enviable and growing reputation in its local community. It is expected to expand to between 600 and 800 pupils over the next decade as the population of Catterick Garrison increases and becomes a ‘Super Garrison’. Links with the Armed Forces are strong. The school has one of the largest proportions of service children (over 52%) of any secondary school in the UK. This military connection is an essential part of the school’s distinctive character.

Risedale was inspected by Ofsted in November 2019 and the glowing report which followed saw the school being judged as 'Good' in all four areas of appraisal which includes; The Quality of Education; Behaviour and Attitudes; Personal Development; Leadership and Management.
