    • World Class Schools Reaccreditation

      Published 14/12/21

      On Monday 6th December, five of the students who helped the school to reaccredit as 'World Class' attended the Awards ceremony in Oxford.

      They had to upload evidence of a wide range of skills, including knowledge, leadership skills and community participation during the summer term, to prove that Bishop Ramsey students are still World Class, for the 6th year running. The ceremony was held at the Sheldonian Theatre and was an enjoyable celebration of all the schools and students who had worked hard to demonstrate their outstanding skills and determination, despite spending a significant amount of the last 18 months working from home. 

      Congratulations to Lase, Thea, Naomi, Sharon and Medina, pictured with Professor Robert Douglas-Fairhurst and author Dan Freedman, as well as the other students who contributed to the reaccreditation.

    • Year 7 and 8 Chaplaincy Trips to Woodrow High House

      Published 18/10/21

      Over four days in September and October,  we took Year 7 and 8 students on day trips to Woodrow High House in Amersham. The activities that they took part in included team building, individual challenges, chapel sessions in the middle of the day and each day finished with a campfire. 

      The students embraced the day–putting themselves out of their comfort zone through doing High Ropes or learning new skills in the bushcraft sessions. They also had to work together as teams on the low ropes and had to use superb communication skills on the Nightline – where they had to navigate an obstacle course whilst blindfolded. 

      The day was loved by all, and many students asked if they would have the opportunity to go again! Plans are already underway to take students next year.

    • Canterbury Choir at AASSH Conference

      Published 18/10/21

      Our Canterbury Choir and Worship and Wellbeing Reps were invited to lead and sing at  the morning service at the Anglican Academy and Secondary Schools Heads conference on Thursday 14th October at The Royal Foundation of St Katharine, Limehouse.  

      The service was entirely student led and included the choir leading the worship in singing Taize chants, Dear Lord and Father of Mankind, and two students leading a reflection on where we hear God by Godfrey Rust called ‘Wordsout’.  

      Headteachers from different parts of the UK were left with tears in their eyes by the service, and Rev Susy, who returned to be part of a panel on chaplaincy on the Friday, heard nothing but praise for how well they did.  

      Canterbury Choir is an auditioned choir for all year groups and meet on Monday and Thursday morning during form time. The choir are involved in leading the sung worship at various occasions during the year and in year group Eucharists. Please see Mrs Bowden if you are interested in finding out more.

    • Year 11 Geography Field Trip to Epping Forest

      Published 11/10/21

      On Wednesday 6th October, Year 11 geography students were finally able to get out into the field and study the Debden Brook in Epping Forest. This trip had originally been planned for June, but Covid meant that the trip had to be rescheduled. Luckily, we were blessed with good weather.

      Students identified the source of a river and discussed how rivers form. The groups then travelled to sites downstream and got into the river to measure how width, depth, velocity and sediment size and shape changed along the course of a river. Potential flood risk at each site was also assessed. 

      Congratulation to all students who attended this trip who demonstrated that they can effectively apply their geographical knowledge to real places and this fieldwork day will help prepare for the summer examinations.

    • Hillingdon SCITT and Bishop Ramsey’s Macmillan Charity Cake/Bake Sale

      Published 01/10/21

      Hillingdon SCITT (Bishop Ramsey’s School Centred Initial Teacher Training Provider), along with some Year 13 Students decided to host two Macmillan Cancer Support Cake mornings on Friday 24th September and Monday 27th September. As a result of the pandemic, we were aware that charities may not have received as many donations as they usually would have, therefore in true SCITT style, we wanted to "make a difference".

      We aspired to raise £1000 over the two mornings. However, with the generosity shown by our pupils, their parents, staff and Hillingdon SCITT Trainees we exceeded this target by far, resulting in raising £1750. We are very grateful for all the contributions to enable this event to have been so successful.

    • Lockdown Science Club Competition Winner

      Published 17/05/21

       

      Lockdown Science Club Competition Winner!

        Science Club is much loved at Bishop Ramsey as it gives students the chance to explore ideas and conduct experiments that are not covered by their timetabled classes. This year, against the backdrop of the nationwide lockdown, we were presented with a challenge - how can students experience the fun & excitement of Science Club from home? 

      To answer this question, we decided to run a competition to find the 'Best Ideas for Lockdown Science Club.'  We challenged students to come up with ideas for science experiments that can be conducted safely at home with everyday items. We were overwhelmed by the quality of submissions, and many students took the time to create video demonstrations of their favourite experiments.

      Choosing the winners was nearly impossible due to the high quality of submissions, but the judges felt that the submission from Julia, 7E, and her 'Teabag Rocket' experiment stood out in terms of fun, innovation, safety and ease of reproducing at home.

      Congratulations to Julia, who receives a certificate and winner's trophy, and we look forward to running this experiment in Science Club! Thank you to everyone who participated and if you would like to learn more about Science Club, please contact Miss Jakku in the Science Office.

    • New Canopy for our Upper Patio

      Published 20/04/21

       

      During the Easter Holidays, work began on the creation of a covered outside seating area on our Upper Patio. The new canopy, which has now been fully installed, is made from a durable waterproof PVC coated fabric and can withstand winds of 65 miles per hour which will provide a much more versatile area for the students to use in all weathers and at all times of the year. 

      We are grateful for the contributions from Alliance in Partnership (AiP) and FBR which have enabled us to create this superb asset to our site.

    • Lockdown Chaplaincy/Art competition

      Published 06/04/21

      From January, while the students weren't able to be physically in school, the Chaplaincy with the Art Department ran a "Lockdown Art Exhibition Competition."

      Students from all year groups entered. The students were invited to produce pieces of art using whatever media they wished which explored the theme of lockdown either through the lense of nature, animals, the view from their window or with a mental health focus. 

      We had over 35 submissions and all of them could have won prizes! As art is so subjective we had a judging panel of 4 staff to ensure a range of opinions . We awarded 3 first prizes, 3 highly commended prizes and a 'Certificate of Appreciation' also knowns as 'The Making the Chaplain Cry Award'.

      The students created such amazing work through such a difficult and unnerving time and all deserve huge praise for their achievements. 

      The artwork shown is by one of our winners, Anushka in Year 8, entitled " You Should Always Have Hope".
