As the new aca­demic year be­gins, pupils in Ruck­leigh School’s Year Six con­tinue in their prepa­ra­tion for en­trance ex­ams into the re­gion’s lead­ing gram­mar and in­de­pen­dent sec­ondary schools, con­fi­dent in the knowl­edge that the ed­u­ca­tional foun­da­tions set in their for­ma­tive years at the school will come to fruition. Last year’s Year Six cel­e­brated another record year of ex­cep­tional ex­am­i­na­tion re­sults cul­mi­nat­ing in 22 gram­mar school of­fers and 16 aca­demic schol­ar­ships - with all pupils now set­tling into the se­nior school of their choice. This suc­cess is tes­ta­ment to the hard work of pupils, teach­ers and par­ents in work­ing to achieve each child’s full po­ten­tial across a wide range of aca­demic sub­jects – as well as op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­cel in the arts and sport. A high­light of the sum­mer term was the school’s mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion at the Core Theatre in Soli­hull with pupils per­form­ing their ver­sion of Char­lie and The Cho­co­late and Matilda in front of a sell- out au­di­ence.

Our sports teams com­pete suc­cess­fully in the lo­cal leagues and ISA com­pe­ti­tions; our mu­si­cians play in or­ches­tras and con­certs; and drama con­tin­ues to pro­vide chil­dren with the op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate even fur­ther their cre­ativ­ity and in­di­vid­u­al­ity.

Pupils from Ruck­leigh School starred in an evening of mu­si­cal theatre per­form­ing at the Core Theatre their ver­sion of Char­lie and the Cho­co­late Fac­tory and Matilda in front of a very ap­pre­cia­tive au­di­ence. From L to R: Rishi, Zhala, Lily, Alice and...
