Welcome from the Head of School
A warm welcome to the Bishop Ramsey School website.
We are a Church of England Academy for students aged between 11 - 18 years. We hope that this website will provide a brief insight into our school and a flavour of the Christian Learning Community that is Bishop Ramsey.
We have a distinctive Ethos and Mission which are based on our Christian view of the world. You can find out more about that here.
Bishop Ramsey is the founding member of Veritas Educational Trust. The Trust is currently working to open a sister school to Bishop Ramsey, also in the north of the London Borough of Hillingdon. The new school will be called Bishop Arden and will share Bishop Ramsey's ethos and mission.
Bishop Ramsey's success in many fields is a reflection of our determination to live out the aspirations in our Mission Statement. Governors, staff, parents and students together share a commitment to ensuring that, as the School develops, it retains its distinctive Christian ethos, its focus on learning and its sense of community.
The School is at an exciting time in its development. Since November 2006 when we were recognised as 'outstanding' in all areas of Ofsted, we have been officially designated as an 'International School', a 'National Support School' and in 2013 as a 'National Teaching School' with a remit to lead education in our local area. In September 2016 we extended this role by training teachers for ourselves and other local schools as an Ofsted approved SCITT.
Like many other outstanding schools, we became an Academy in September 2011. This enables us to have greater control over the opportunities we offer our students to enrich their education. We also are able to offer our students truly outstanding facilities and resources following our £21 million building project, completed in April 2009. Since then we have made further improvements to our facilities including the refurbishment of our Science Laboratories and major improvements to our Sports Hall and Changing Rooms.
Students at Bishop Ramsey characteristically out-perform those in other schools both at GCSE and A Level. In 2015 we were delighted to be one of only 27 schools in the country to be awarded the prestigious 'World Class Schools' Quality Mark.
