Enrichment Experience – Speedwell Cavern

On a cold Friday morning in February, excited pupils from Years 8 and 9 set out for Castleton in the Peak District. With snow gently falling pupils made their way on foot across the hillside en route to Speedwell Cavern, a disused lead mine half flooded with water. Descending 450 metres below the surface pupils alighted on to the waiting boat. In the cramped tunnel helmets knocked against the rock, allowing pupils to understand a little………………(Click title to read more)

Design and Technology

Junior and Key Stage 3 Pupils at Ramillies Hall were challenged in D&T this week to work in small teams to design and build a bridge, entirely of paper, to span a 1M gap and to support a minimum of 1 D&T sketchbook, with an aim of supporting 10. And they only had about 45 minutes’ construction time!

The pupils rose to the challenge and nearly all groups succeeded in the basic task, with some groups excelling – the most books held by a paper bridge was 14!…………….(Click title to read more)

Welcome to Ramillies Hall

A Few Words of Introduction


I have been the Headmistress of Ramillies Hall School for nearly 2 years and have worked here for over 7.  I take a great deal of pleasure in my role and one of the highlights of my job is to watch our pupils flourish.

Ramillies Hall is a school full of enthusiastic and energetic children. We encourage an environment that fosters confidence and a passion for learning. Our pupils can grow up without a fear of failure, striving for the best life skills and the highest of educational standards.

Ramillies Hall School is a small independent mainstream school. We follow the National Curriculum but we also specialize in teaching children with specific learning difficulties. We are in a unique situation where we can tailor our education to meet the individual needs of all our pupils.

We are a non-denominational school. We place a strong emphasis on religious tolerance and understanding.

“We are committed to the process of learning”

Understanding the different needs of every child is our prime aim. We strive to achieve the highest possible standards in the wider educational context, where achievement, equality and independence are key aspirations for all.
Small classes allow us to support individual needs, abilities and talents through the provision of high quality teaching. A varied and exciting curriculum, far too broad to detail here, allows children to enjoy success within an organisation that celebrates academic progress and self-improvement.

“Happy and Purposeful”

This ethos applies to extra-curricular activities and pastoral care, and is used to develop the personal qualities of the children.
If you are interested in sending your child to Ramillies, I would recommend that you come and see the school in action.  We have Open Mornings twice a year but parents are always welcome to make an appointment to arrange a visit at other times during the school day. You will get a sense of our unique atmosphere and what we have to offer.
