Welcome from the Head of School
I was delighted to start here as the new Head of School in September 2018 and am thrilled that I have been given the opportunity to lead the school in the next phase of its development.
At Bishop Ramsey we are proud to be an outstanding, world class learning community. As a Church of England School we are supported by the diocese of London and education at Bishop Ramsey is based on our Christian view of the world. Our distinctive Ethos outlined here seeks to ensure that every student has the opportunity to develop their individual skills and talents and that they become responsible and caring adults. This was highlighted in our latest SIAMs inspection (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) which graded us as Outstanding in all areas. “The School’s deeply embedded Christian foundation successfully shapes its life as, ‘a Christian learning community.’ Students are confident, respectful and compassionate young people.”
This is an exciting time in the school’s development and, despite an Ofsted Outstanding grading, we have continued to strive for improvement. We have been officially designated as an 'International School', a 'National Support School' and a 'National Teaching School'. In 2016 we also became an Ofsted approved SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) Centre and this allows us to recruit and train the very best teachers for Bishop Ramsey and other local schools. In July 2018 we were also reaccredited as a World Class School, one of only 16 schools in the country to have achieved this status.
Bishop Ramsey has an excellent reputation for academic excellence with impressive GCSE and A’ Level results; a consequence of our relentless commitment to ensuring that each and every student achieves of their very best. We are also committed to continually developing our outstanding facilities with, most recently in August 2018, an extensive project resulting in high quality dedicated sixth form study areas and facilities.
Both staff and students are very proud of all that we do here and we would be delighted to tell you more. Please do look at our website and prospectus and come along to one of our open evenings. I look forward to meeting you.
Mrs Nina Adamson
