GCSE results are announced - posted 24th Aug

Ruislip High School's GCSE results are in line with last year’s results which were the best to date in the school’s short history. Staff are delighted that nearly all students who had applied to the sixth form attained the grades to progress to the Level 3 courses. For the first time, it is expected that the school’s sixth form will have over two hundred students based on very strong internal retention figures. In terms of the new GCSEs in English language, literature and mathematics, the school’s headlines figures are exceedingly strong and reflect the students’ and teachers’ hard work to meet the challenge of the more difficult qualifications. Performance at the top end continued to be strong with 12 students attaining 7 or more A-A*/7-9 grades. Two students, Hannah Alcock and Hugh Nolan, attained grades 9 in both English and mathematics which is an outstanding achievement and 30 students attained 5 or more A-A*/7-9 grades. The subject information can be accessed via the school's website in the ‘about us’ section.

Summer Fair 2017 - posted 16th Jun

Friday 16th June 2017 saw Ruislip High’s sixth annual summer fair. The sun shone as the school prepared to celebrate forty years of change, with each year group creating a stall linked to a different decade. Year 7 had the 1970s and had stalls celebrating flower power, whilst Year 8 had the 1980s and stalls included a silent disco of 1980s music and a celebration of the classic film ‘Labyrinth’. Year 9 focused on the 1990s and had lots of focus on the sporting events of the decade, although a very popular moment was 9F’s ‘soak the teacher’ stall when Head of Year 9 Mr Stent was repeatedly drenched by Year 9 students. Year 10’s stalls celebrated the 1960s with a ‘beat the goalie’ competition to reflect the 1966 world cup and stalls celebrating famous films of the decade. Molly in 7B commented that she ‘loved learning how people lived during the different decades’. The fair also included lots of rides, a BBQ, a DJ, ice cream van and raffle.
