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 leadership skills which was encouraging to see.

There were several other activities with which the children engaged in, for example; the Tower of Hanoi, memory/maths challenge, cross the minefield and the burden run.

In the afternoon, the pupils were able to enjoy a game of football and a penalty shootout, there were some amazing goals scored and two pupils deserve a particular mention, one was Sandy who with great skill managed to distract the goalie and score, the other was Wadi, who managed to slip the ball in the net and took the goalie, Harry by surprise.

All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed their activity day and Year 10 can’t wait to repeat it next year.

Many thanks to the Army for providing a fantastic day.

Dear Parents

I am delighted to inform you on behalf of all of the staff at Ramillies that we have undertaken our OFSTED monitoring Inspection on Thursday 8th June 2017. We have received all of our feedback and today have been given permission to share the findings with our staff, governors and all parents. The report can be found on the school website and I have attached it for your information.

It is my absolute pleasure to tell you that we have now received confirmation that we have met all Independent School Standards and that we have set a framework in place that has been recognised as robust and effective in taking the school forward. The improvements in school performance and in capturing what we do is evident and OFSTED has acknowledged that we have worked swiftly and effectively.

We are all delighted with this outcome and feel that it is a fair representation of the efforts and outcomes of a very busy and challenging academic year. It is our intention to embed current practice and to improve this wonderful school further. Next year will see the school continue to work hard and develop further ready for our next full inspection which should be in approximately a years’ time.

All that remains to be said is a very big thank you from myself and my team for the support and kind words that we have all received from our encouraging and supportive parents. We look forward to the continued success of our pupils at Ramillies Hall School.

With kind regards
Denise Anthony
Head teacher
