    • Speak Out Regional Final

      Published 10/12/19

      On Wednesday 27th November, Jacob Nettleship and his supporters made their way to the Hillingdon final of Jack Petchey's "Speak Out" competition, held at Bishopshalt school. Jacob was selected to represent Bishop Ramsey, having won the school competition the week before, in an assembly "speak off" against six students from across Year 10.

      The atmosphere was energetic and a real celebration of young people and what they can achieve. There were 21 students, representing  all the schools in Hillingdon, and their topics were as diverse as them. We had both humorous and emotional speeches on electric cars, autism, mental health, domestic abuse, racism and being a middle child. Each was well crafted, thought provoking and passionate, proving young people have plenty to say, when given the opportunity.

      Jacob gave a witty and well-crafted speech on perspectives, in which he used the now-famous Jaffa cake example to explore how we see things differently and that this is a good thing.  He spoke with humour and eloquence, delivering an engaging performance of which he should be proud.

      The winners were selected by a panel looking for a wide range of skills, including the Mayor and a representative from the Scouts and they awarded Bishopshalt and Douay Martyrs the highest scores of the evening.

      We are incredibly proud of Jacob and the work he put into making his speech truly excellent and unique; he was a worthy representative of Bishop Ramsey at the regional event.

    • Italy 2019

      Published 24/04/19

      The Humanities Faculty embarked on a 6 day tour of Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast and Naples this Easter taking 38 KS4 and KS5 students with us.

      Students and staff enjoyed an action packed trip starting with a full day of touring visiting Vesuvius and Pompeii.  Following the epic trek up Vesuvius and learning all about the geography and history of the infamous volcano we all enjoyed walking around the rim and a chance to take some pictures of the stunning views of the Bay of Naples.  The afternoon was taken up with a walking tour of Pompeii learning about the ancient city and life there before its destruction.  That evening we enjoyed a traditional Italian meal at a local restaurant. 

      The second day was a chance to see the highlights of the Amalfi Coast.  All involved had ample chance to see the amazing views and take plenty of pictures.  We also had time to visit the historic site of Amalfi and enjoy some free time was well as the beautiful town of Ravello in the mountains.  This was followed by some free time in Sorrento with a chance to get a gelato and shop before dinner at a local pizzeria. 

       

      The next day started with a hydrofoil boat trip across to Capri across the slightly rougher waters than some of us would have liked!  However, once in Capri we enjoyed more amazing views and some shopping!  That evening we relaxed at the hotel and had dinner followed by some free time at night in Sorrento.

      The following day was a chance to see the historic ruins of Herculaneum, smaller but better preserved than Pompeii which was enjoyed by all, except for the rain!  That afternoon we all enjoyed some free time in Sorrento as well as some time to pack and get ready for dinner.  On our final night we ate at another local restaurant as well as celebrated Evie’s birthday!

      On our final day we headed to Naples to visit an Underground Museum which allowed us to see what life was like underneath the surface of the famous city.  We enjoyed wandering the streets as well as seeing some amazing Roman ruins that can be found in homes and buildings still in use today.  We finished our trip with a visit to the Archaeological Museum before heading to the airport for our journey home.

      Many of our students expressed what a wonderful time that had on their trip and how grateful they were to staff for taking them so a big thank you goes out to Miss Wood, Mr Wills, Mr Drury and Miss Robinson as well as all the students who made the trip a great success!
