Why choose Ramillies?
Ramillies Hall school is a non-selective independent school for boys and girls set on an 8 acre site in Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire. Whilst we are only 30 minutes from the vibrant city of Manchester, we boast wonderful playing fields and have access to the Goyt valley, Derbyshire and many local places of historical and geographical interest which we make full use of as part of our curriculum.
We are a family school both in ethos and in history; having been in the same family for over 100 years. Providing an education which is rich, varied and led by the individual needs of our pupils is at the heart of what we do.
Our pupils are taught in small, friendly classes and our dedicated team of staff work hard to deliver the highest standards of learning. All of our highly experienced staff aim to ensure all pupils achieve their personal best and that any barriers to learning are removed through clear frameworks of support where required.
Why Choose Ramillies?
- small class sizes
- personalised education
- wide range of extra-curricular activities
- strong pastoral care
- 8 acres of grounds in a semi-rural location
- catering for children with a range of learning abilities
We are very proud of our broad curriculum which has been developed over years to best meet the requirements of our pupils. This encompasses not only traditional GCSE academic subjects but others such as BTEC, City and Guilds, Functional Skills, Entry Level Certificates, Princes Trust and Preparation for working Life. We offer outdoor learning opportunities designed to enhance and consolidate the knowledge of our pupils taught within the classroom. We also place a strong emphasis on careers and work experience; facilitating opportunities for our senior pupils. This symbiosis of traditional classes alongside a range of experiential learning opportunities and a range of extra-curricular activities, enables pupils to develop self-esteem, confidence and resilience. It is our ambition that every young person leaves Ramillies with a “skills and educational tool kit” ready for life, further education and employment.
Being part of our local community is important to the school; not only do our connections enhance the opportunities for the delivery of the curriculum, but pupils take responsibility for developing ideas to raise funds or to support many local charities and organisations such as Barnardos, Cheadle Hulme places of faith, The Wellspring Kitchen and The Junk Food Project. Our busy academic years are packed with activities which broaden the understanding of our pupils on how they can make a difference to the community and the world they live in.
