Ringwood School (opened in 1959) is an 11-19 National Teaching Academy. The school is situated in Ringwood, Hampshire, and currently has over 1600 students. It was a specialist Language College but has successfully become an Academy in April 2011 and gained National Teaching School status in July 2011.

The school gained the ‘Eco-schools Green Flag Award’ in 2006, 2008 and 2010.

The school has recently applied for Ambassador Status for Sustainability.


The school is located in the historic market town of Ringwood and is a lively community situated close to the New Forest National Park and the Dorset World Heritage Coastline. The school lies at the heart of its community including villages in the surrounding area.
