Headteacher's Welcome

Headteacher's Welcome

The journey for Ruislip High School began when the school opened its doors to its first cohort of Year 7 students in September, 2006. In its short history, the school is proud to have been graded Outstanding by Ofsted in November, 2007 and June, 2011. The school’s logo reflects the students’ journey from grass roots to reaching for the sky.

The school’s ethos statement is as follows:

“Ruislip High School inspires our community of young people by offering a range of exciting learning opportunities, supported by consistently high expectations, both within and beyond the classroom.  Mutual respect, hard-work, team-work, perseverance, integrity and self-discipline are core to our values of a successful learning community.”

We believe that students need to take responsibility for their learning and their actions. Students are encouraged to be challenged in lessons and to understand that learning is not always about getting the right answer!

At Ruislip High, we offer students a diverse range of opportunities both in and out of the classroom. For example, we are one of a few schools to offer the Duke of Edinburgh Award at all levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold. We believe that students continue to develop their self-esteem and pride through their achievement in lessons and their commitment to enrichment activities, especially when they have to face new challenges. 

We are a school both in, and for, the community. We strive to be the best school we can be for our community and are determined to educate all our students so that they can fulfil their undoubted potential. We believe that engagement with our local community is essential. In our short history, we have set up strong relations with local businesses, our feeder primary schools and with Higher Education institutions such as Brunel University. We work closely with parents and have fostered an open and reflective relationship through our annual parental questionnaires and termly parents’ focus groups. In addition, we are fortunate to be supported by The Friends of Ruislip High School, who have shown a commitment to the school since its early beginnings.

We also ensure that our students have an established and meaningful ‘voice’ through subject focus groups, student questionnaires, our prefect bodies and school council. It is through students’ positive engagement and sense of ownership that the school has gone from strength to strength. In September, 2012, we were delighted to inform the local community that we had increased our Year 7 intake from one hundred and fifty to one hundred and eighty students; the students are taught in seven form classes rather than six. This increase has resulted in an expansion in our catchment area to include more families in the north of the Borough.

Our vision for Ruislip High School is to ensure we build on our excellent foundation; we will continue to provide all our students with a first-class secondary education which will equip them for the future whether in tertiary education or the workplace.

Dr Martina Lecky
