Concern for people in the community is a mark of our Christian responsibility. Bishop Ramsey students are involved in the community in many ways. Money is raised to support local, national and international charities. Lent Appeal Week is a major focus of the School’s life and significant sums are raised for charities, nominated by the School Council. At Harvest, collections are made for the homeless and, at Christmas, gift parcels distributed to those in need.
All Sixth Formers undertake some community service, assisting children, the elderly or those in hospital. Fund-raising, charity events and The School Council, on which every tutor group is represented, are successfully organised by the students. Many actively participate in the national Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. In the July of 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013 parties of Sixth Form students spent two weeks doing community work in our partner school in Malosa, Malawi. They were able to see the mini bus that Malosa School had bought with funds raised entirely by Bishop Ramsey.
The School welcomes and values the support of parents/carers and local industrialists who work with staff at our annual Year 10 Industry Links Days and at our Careers Fair.
We provide support for several local schools (both primary and secondary) in both Science and Mathematics. As a Local Support School we offer support in school leadership and management to other schools.
Our wide range of facilities is regularly let out to various groups, clubs and societies in the evenings and at weekends. You can find all the details of what's available and how to book on our Lettings page in the left hand menu.
