We are an 11 to 18 mixed comprehensive school situated in Ruislip.
Our School is a thriving and vibrant community of 1250 students and 175 staff. Over 300 of our students are in the Sixth Form. We achieve well in public examinations and also when value added measures are used.
Our driving force is the Christian view of Hope. It underpins all our work. Our School community is founded on a belief that God made us, God loves us, God has redeemed his world and invites and encourages us to share his work in doing good in the world. This is summarised in the words from St Julian of Norwich, which look down on our Atrium "All manner of thing shall be well".
The School has a rich cultural life, with regular Art Exhibitions, Concerts and Productions. We also field teams in Football, Rugby, Basketball, Hockey, Netball, Cricket, Cross Country and Athletics.
Our priorities can be seen in our School Ethos and Mission Statement.
Bishop Ramsey School recognizes that every individual is created in the image of God. We seek to nurture each member of our community to develop his or her skills and abilities in a positive and ordered learning environment, so that students mature into responsible and caring adults, and that all members of the school community recognize the value of every individual in God's eyes.
As a Church of England School we wish students to grow in the Christian faith. While being firmly committed to this, we encourage an understanding of and a respect for other faiths.
The principle of Christian stewardship underpins our approach to the use of the School's resources. Our approach to our relationships is based on the Christian view of God's love for each of his human children and of Jesus' command to forgive and love our fellows. We base our approach to achievement and the provision of opportunities for development on Jesus' statement that he came to offer 'life in all its fullness'.
With the collective input of each individual we aspire to be a caring Christian Community :-
- Where inquiry is prized and where truth is sought
- Where people are valued and achievement is celebrated
- Where teachers are proud of their profession and where students discover that learning is valuable for itself
- Where there are many activities and where there is space for quiet reflection
- Where there is respect for order yet a desire to question and be creative
In 2010 the School adopted the following 5 aspirational strategic aims. They guide us in the way we deploy our resources and order our priorities:
- Every learner an empowered learner
- Every lesson an outstanding lesson
- Every day at school a rich experience
- Every relationship a positive encounter
- A community that looks outwards and beyond
