Physicists in Y13 enjoyed a trip to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. They enjoyed a presentation at the planetarium and took part in an exoplanets workshop. They stood on the Prime Meridian, so they could be in both the East and the West at the same time! https://t.co/cNl7qtVzu1

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with Maths during my GCSEs. The skills you have taught me (especially in statistics) proved to be vital in my undergraduate degree, with my favourite modules being those that incorporated statistics. I am extremely proud to be a Rutlish student. Ben is about to start his Masters at Cambridge University.
transition to Year 7
I'd like to say a massive thank you for all that you are doing to keep my son and his friends happy and safe. I know there may be challenges ahead, given the current circumstances but my son feels settled, motivated and ready to learn.
Once again Miss I would like to say a massive thanks for all the support you provided me and I honestly couldn't have done it without your help.
Thank you to all staff
Our son joined Year 7 in September . In spite of all the challenges faced this term, he has settled in so well, made great academic progress and feels so supported by all staff. The systems you have put in place for remote learning are incredible and they have enabled him to keep up to date with work and continue to feel part of the Rutlish community.
We have been blown away by the school's communication, dedication and clear love of the boys. From the day we received the letter to say he was accepted we have been impressed with the communication, the attention to detail, giving the boys clear explanations of what is to come.......... and I know from experience not what all schools do. The teachers we have been in contact with have all been amazing and so supportive.
My son has enjoyed his secondary education in this school. He loves education and achieves high. The teachers always help him along the way to excel. We are really happy overall I think I couldn’t have chosen a better school than Rutlish .
Absolutely fantastic school that helped my son achieve amazing results. Revision sessions are outstanding, communication has always been fast and helpful, support has always been given when needed.
There has never been a tougher time to work in education what with the funding cuts, mental health crisis and the aftermath of the pandemic. And also the revised grading scale of exams 1-9. Etc. Extremely impressed and grateful for all the support my son has received at Rutlish. Thank You!
