    • New Canopy for our Upper Patio

      Published 20/04/21

       

      During the Easter Holidays, work began on the creation of a covered outside seating area on our Upper Patio. The new canopy, which has now been fully installed, is made from a durable waterproof PVC coated fabric and can withstand winds of 65 miles per hour which will provide a much more versatile area for the students to use in all weathers and at all times of the year. 

      We are grateful for the contributions from Alliance in Partnership (AiP) and FBR which have enabled us to create this superb asset to our site.

    • Bishop Ramsey School Remembers

      Published 12/11/20

      Bishop Ramsey school commemorated Armistice Day in a short socially distanced Act of Remembrance incorporating the annual 2 minutes silence.

      Representatives of the staff including Mr Wilcock, Mr Britton and Year 7 students met at the schools Flagpole shortly before 11.00am. Everyone stood in an arc distanced from each other. The schools Chaplain,  Revd Dand led prayers and the citation ‘They Shall not grow old’ before 'The Last Post' was played by James Orriss and the whole school went silent to honour the fallen and all those involved in war and conflict. It was a very poignant moment especially in this difficult year when the world is experiencing a different type of ‘war’.  At the end of the silence 'Reveille' was played.

      This was followed by the Act of Commitment and ended with the Blessing and Dismissal.

      Those present then paraded to the Remembrance Garden which was created in 2018 and contains the remembrance wildflowers of Great Britain, France, Belgium and Germany which flower through the year. Miss Neal led students in the laying of a poppy wreath and two small wooden crosses, followed by a moment of silence. Year 7 have also made poppies which have been put in the garden.

      Due to current restrictions commemoration in school was different to other years, there were fewer at the flagpole and garden but the whole school were still able to remember in silence and are able to visit the small garden to pay their respects. Next year let us hope our remembrance will be able to return to normal and the nation will be able to commemorate together again.

      We will remember them.

    • Bishop Ramsey is a Music Mark School

      Published 21/09/20

      On Friday 18th September Mrs Bowden, our Head of Music, announced the lovely news that the Hillingdon Music Hub had nominated Bishop Ramsey as a Music Mark School 2020/21.

      Music Mark is a membership organisation, subject association and charity that advocates for excellent music education for all children and young people. Music hubs and services around the UK are able to nominate schools who they believe have shown a commitment to providing high quality music education. The Hillingdon Music Hub has recognised the value that Bishop Ramsey places on music and our dedication to providing a broad and balanced curriculum.

      Music plays an integral role in the life of our school within worship, performances and lessons. The music curriculum at Bishop Ramsey allows pupils the opportunity to learn about new styles of music as well as music that interests them. The aim is that they will develop a love for a wide range of music and work together to perform a wide variety of music, once we are allowed to do so safely. Our Music Department staff are passionate about the importance of music both in lesson time and as part of the wider school and it is wonderful that this has been recognised by the Hillingdon Music Hub. We will continue to strive for the very best music education for our students.

      Mrs Bowden says 'I am delighted with this achievement and hope it is the start of all the developments happening in the music department this year'
