What is Evolve?

Evolve is a small college in the centre of Ripon. We provide an alternative to a large campus for full-time students in a supportive, friendly and inclusive environment.


Your study programme is created to match your individual needs, interests, and aspirations. Select your core aim and we will add a suite of additional elements to make a unique package, just for you!


You will be stretched and challenged in all of your innovative and progressive study programme. Your Individual Learning Plan will identify targets in every area of your course, reviewed six weekly.


We have an embedded culture of kindness, respect and tolerance. You are encouraged to be unique individuals whilst gaining the strength to shine, care about and be tolerant of others.


You will be able to develop your confidence, self-esteem and independence via a holistic education system with a wrap-round of individual support and feedback to help you meet your goals.
