We’re back in full steam heading our way into the second year of our Community initiative.
Please find attached an overview of this half term’s Community programme. My apologies for not getting this out last week. As last year, our Intention is to send out an overview of the programme for each half term so that parents are aware of what we have planned. Also as last year, due to the number of external speakers and organisations we are working with, the programme has to have a degree of flexibility and is provisional at eh time of publication………………(Click title to read more)
Ramillies Hall School extended a warm welcome to local author J D Welch who spoke to all our senior pupils about her new book The Einstein Code.
The story is about a 13-year-old boy, Ben, who lives in Heaton Moor, and his search for his Mum, an agro chemist, who is kidnapped. He follows clues all over Manchester and Stockport so this book, the first of a trilogy planned by Joanne, has an extra dimension for us here.
She spoke with real passion about her love of reading and writing, how she became a published author……….

The pupils and staff worked hard and had great fun building an ‘Insect Hotel’ during one of our end of term activity days. Using old pallets, bricks, roof tiles and natural materials we transformed an area behind the science lab into an invertebrate ‘des-res’! The pupils used their design technology skills to drill holes into logs, to saw dead tree branches to size and to drill the pallets together for stability. Why bother? The ‘hotel’ should provide many refuges and micro-habitats for all invertebrates that are an essential part…….

On Friday, 17th June, just after the final exam for most of the pupils, Year 11 enjoyed a celebration lunch at Gusto’s with some of the staff. We all sat at a large table together and ate pizzas, pasta, salads etc and exchanged a few stories about some of the memories of Ramillies which will be hard to forget. Most of these were news to the staff!
Mrs Grant, on behalf of all the staff, wished the pupils every success for the future and said how much she had enjoyed being Year 11 Tutor, especially as they had done so well in helping to raise money for charity and showing concern for the younger pupils. They have been good role models……….

Welcome to Ramillies Hall
A Few Words of Introduction
I have been the Headmistress of Ramillies Hall School for over 30 years and take a great deal of pleasure in my role. 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.
