      There were huge celebrations again today at Bishop Ramsey as students collected their Year 11 examination results.

      Over 85% of all results received were awarded at grades 4 - 9, over 70% were graded 5 - 9 and 21% of students achieved a 5 or better in all 10 of their subjects. Their incredible hard work has been rewarded and we are delighted that so many students have enrolled once again to continue their studies in our Sixth Form at Bishop Ramsey.

    • Bishop Ramsey win national Eco competition

      Published 24/06/22

      Bishop Ramsey is delighted to have been awarded first prize in a national secondary school competition which invited students across twenty regions to promote awareness of the effect of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans and become Ocean Influencers of the future.

      Year 10 Art and Design students created Bruce, the atrium-living, plastic bottle collecting shark, as part of Bishop Ramsey’s campaign to raise awareness of the use of plastic in Bishop Ramsey as well as the danger of plastics and microplastics which are such a threat to marine life.

      Students across the school were invited to submit a written account about why we should protect the oceans. Many congratulations to Safiya (Year 9), who submitted the winning entry. Her beautiful poem “My Ocean” describes the challenges to marine life and sensitively highlights the beauty of the world’s oceans. Safiya’s winning poem and the other highly commended essays can be seen on the Eco notice board in the Humanities corridor.

      The final part of the competition was the informative presentation created by the Eco Team (which involved students from Year 7-12).
      Huge congratulations to all who participated in this competition and especially to the Eco team who have regularly attended this year. A big thank you to Mr McGinnes, the Art Department and Mrs Fletcher for their support as well.

      The prize includes a trip for 20 students to the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall to learn how to dive with PADI diving instructors and our winners will complete the PADI Open Water Diving qualification, as well as enjoy a week of outdoor beach activities and a fun visit to Skywire based at the Eden Project and which has England’s longest and fastest zipwire.

      Bishop Ramsey is delighted to support raising awareness of the challenges facing our world’s oceans and the Eco Team will continue to do this next year.

    • Song written by our Canterbury Choir has been released as a single

      Published 22/04/22

      In September 2021, Year 7 & 8 students from our Canterbury Choir joined a trial workshop with EDEN Engagement exploring the question ‘what if tree’s could sing?’. They worked with Professor Mike Roberts from the Guildhall to write their own songs answering this question. Mike took their words and melodies and curated them in the song ‘Seeds of Hope’.

      EDEN is the multi-faceted world tour of Joyce Di Donato – the Kansas-born multi-Grammy and 2018 Olivier award winner opera singer – visiting 45 cities across 5 continents. Joyce visited Bishop Ramsey in February when the song and a mini documentary was filmed by Warner Classics with the Choir.

      The song ‘Seeds of Hope’ has become the anthem of the EDEN tour, sung by choirs in each of the tour cities. Canterbury Choir performed with Joyce at the Barbican as part of the London leg of the tour. 

      The single is available on all digital platforms.

    • 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.

    • 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.
