We are passionate about educating the whole child. At Ringmer opportunities abound for students to enjoy and improve their skills in their interests beyond the classroom.
These opportunities give students the time to grow emotionally, creatively, physically and socially. They can learn to work as part of a team and experience successes and failures.
We enhance our normal curriculum through enrichment days and activities. All students have the chance to participate in enrichment days which in the past have included Personal Finance, Enterprise, Water Aid, Trips to the Imperial War Museum, and the BBC to name but a few. We have a busy programme of cultural and study trips in this country and abroad - such as the History trip to Ypres, Art to Lake Garda and Welsh Camp every summer for Year 8.
All departments run extra-curricular activities and we offer an amazing range of clubs and after school sports from rugby and astronomy to aerobics, dance and public speaking. We are very fortunate to have such dedicated staff who give very freely of their time. At the beginning of term we run a clubs fair enabling students to find out more and to sign up for clubs of their choice - these run at lunchtime and after school.
There is a daily study/homework club after school every day in the library, or Learning Resource Centre.
Students often come in at weekends with staff to rehearse for concerts; performances and the annual Christmas Musical or Panto.
Sport at Ringmer is thriving thanks to our enthusiastic and dedicated staff and to wonderful facilities, which include extensive playing fields, gymnasium, swimming pool, new cardiovascular training suite, tennis courts and cricket nets. We have teams in all year groups who regularly play other local schools and our talented sportspeople often win scholarships to private specialist schools and gain national recognition for their endeavours.
