Message from the Head.
Here at Ruthin School, we place the child at the centre of all that we do. We are unashamedly academic, but we maintain the best interests of every child in every decision that we make. Each year we guide and support our students through their academic journey, culminating in transition to some of the very best further education establishments both here in the UK and around the world. We are particularly proud of our achievements in gaining places at Cambridge, Oxford, UCL, Imperial and many other Russell Group universities. In September 2021, we will send 8 students to Oxbridge and 84% to Russell Group universities.
Whilst we are proud of our academic achievements, life at the school is so much more than just study. We provide our students with the opportunity to develop leadership, resilience and communication skills as well as an opportunity to mix with other young people from different backgrounds, cultures and from all over the world.
Our students work hard and are driven by the common desire to succeed in their academic studies, whilst maintaining a sense of well-being and community. The daily interactions I have with our student body is not only life affirming but also an immense privilege. Nestled at the foot of the Clwydian mountains, the view from my office is second to none. Our students can live here, surrounded by beautiful scenery, in the knowledge that they are breathing clean and healthy air, and are part of a small community so they can study, thrive and succeed.
Ruthin School has been established in this small Welsh town for over 700 years. In that time the school has seen many changes, transforming from a small boys-only school to a co-educational international boarding school. The longevity of the school is tantamount to its ability to adapt, change and modernise over the centuries, whilst continuing to embrace its tradition and history.
The COVID pandemic has been an opportunity for us to revisit our learning pedagogy and we have embraced technology and blended learning so that our students can be confident they will continue to receive a high-class education whilst in school and, if necessary, at home.
