Year 7 ‘s Marvellous Theatre Trip

On Wednesday, 16th November Year 7 went by minibus into Manchester to see the production of George’s Marvellous Medicine at the Opera House. Maleehah, Year 10, helped us to organise the trip as part of her Asdan course and accompanied us, she was a fantastic assistant.

The Year 7’s are all very familiar with this very funny Roald Dahl story, having read it themselves at home or, this term, in their English class. It was so exciting to see the story unfold right in front of their eyes…………….(Click title to read more)

Operation Christmas Child

A big thank you to all the parents, pupils and staff who generously made up and donated a Christmas box. These boxes have now been delivered to the distribution warehouse in Ashton-Under-Lyne and await distribution to less privileged children.

Year 10 pupils also deserve praise for instigating and organising the charity event.
Once again, thank you for supporting this charity event and spreading a little bit of happiness into young people’s lives around the world.

ERIC (A new name at RHS !)

We are very excited to launch a new initiative throughout the school – ERIC – Everybody Reading In Class.

Senior pupils are familiar with this mnemonic as, in their English lessons, they are all encouraged to read – to the teacher, TA or independently in ERIC time . We record their progress and keep a note in the library of the books they have read, awarding the stars in our assemblies.

This year, following the huge efforts made by all the pupils, the awards will be bronze-5 books, silver -10 books and gold -20 books . We will be awarding a number of bronze awards this week in assembly to the pupils who have read 5 books since September……… (Click title to read more)

Treasure Island

On Monday 10th October 2016 the Junior school and Years 7/8 enjoyed a lively performance of Treasure Island. The pupils were enthralled with the play and the characters who were so lifelike had the audience spellbound. The Juniors were so engrossed that they entered into the narrative and caused the actors to struggle to maintain their composure.

Army Day

On Wednesday 21st September Years 10 and 11 took part in an Army Activity Day. They started off with a mile and a half run just to warm up. All the pupils should feel proud of themselves and what they achieved.
While one group were sampling the delights of Army rations, another group were attempting to cross a ‘river’ using just 2 planks and a lot of teamwork.
The pupils were given the opportunity to apply camouflage paint to their faces and were taught how to patrol and were able to use imitation rifles which they all enjoyed immensely. Some of the pupils ably demonstrated their…………………(Click on title to read more).

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.
