PLEASE VISIT US ON OUR OPEN MORNING
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. Commenting Head Teacher, Barbara Forster said: Ruckleigh School is very much the start of a child’s academic journey and success in their future careers. Ruckleigh has always been regarded as a truly outstanding academic school but it is important to highlight we are about so much more. 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.
