    • 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!

    • Bishop Ramsey’s Got Talent

      Published 11/04/19

      On 7th March we were lucky enough to be entertained by 16 entries for “Bishop Ramsey’s Got Talent”.  Acts included singers, dancers, magicians, comedians and musicians. We opened the Talent Show with Ms Priestley’s powerful lungs, singing, “What’s up?by the Four Non Blondes. Ms Priestley, Mrs Hayward and Mr Bishop took on the roles of our judges for the evening. They found choosing the overall winners such a difficult challenge due to the huge amount of talent we were presented with. The overall winner of the competition was Ella Stanbridge (9Y) who wowed us with her beautiful version of Alicia Key’s song, “If I ain’t got you”. She was a well deserved winner and we hope to hear her perform at many more Bishop Ramsey events.

      I would like to give a special thanks to Pip Stock (Year 10 Choir) who compared the evening, and to Joe Buckley (9M), Zac Wallis (9R), Mr Foote and Mr Bishop for all their technical support. Thank you also to Mr Britton for his assistance with the organisation, to our three brilliant judges and most importantly to all the acts that stepped forward to share their talents with us. We were left feeling extremely proud of all of them.

      Other Winners of the evening included:

      Overall KS4: Harmoni Swaby (11M) and Ella Soares-Smith (Year 9 Choir)

      Overall KS3: Edward Britton (8A) and Evie-Grace Dennis (8M)

      Best entertainment Act: Harry Durn (7Y)

    • Spring Concert 2019

      Published 05/04/19

      The Spring Concert, held on Thursday 28th March, celebrated the musical talents of students from Year 7 to Year 13. Confidently hosted by Pip Stock (Y10) the concert had more than fifty students showcase their skills in a diverse programme of solos and ensembles.  Following rehearsals throughout the term, there were stunning performances from the Canterbury Choir, the Bishop Ramsey Orchestra and Musical Theatre Clubs as well as Concert and Jazz Bands. There were also outstanding duets and solos performed during the evening, offering something for all musical tastes. A special mention goes to our drummer Ruben Logan (Y13) who supported and led various ensembles and performed a stunning version of “Grebfruit”.

      My thanks go to all performers and staff, with special thanks to Dan Bishop for providing support, technical expertise and equipment.
