  • Year12 - Work Experience Programme ​​​​​​​

    Published 12/05/17

    I am writing to introduce the Year 12 Work Experience Programme from Monday, 17 July to

    Friday, 21 July 2017.  

    Work experience is becoming increasingly important as a means of providing students with an understanding of the qualities and qualifications needed for work, developing their self-confidence and interpersonal skills and helping them to make useful contacts in the working world.   In addition the experience provides invaluable evidence on a UCAS Personal Statement or CV to support reasons why a degree/career path has been chosen.

  • Music Department Funding

    Published 05/05/17

    Dear Parent/Carer

    As a Music Department at Sir William Ramsay School we would firstly like to thank you for your support with our subject, especially with attending any of our concerts this school year. We have had some fantastic moments already and, in addition to that, raised some significant funding that has allowed us to maintain a certain level of resources as well as adding some additional value and enrichment to our department.  Something that we have been able to do is start to improve our Music Technology resources in the way of Apple Macs, MIDI keyboards and software. The repairing of damaged equipment has also been possible, as well as the addition of a new piano and the tuning of some old instruments.

    Unfortunately, with education cuts being what they are, we have to rely heavily on money we can raise ourselves.  Sadly, the money we raise only goes so far and the events we hold only raise so much. So it is with great hope and sincerity that we invite you to assist us with enriching the department further still and help to give our students here an outstanding musical and technological experience that will provide them with even more skills, knowledge and passion in this subject and hopefully others.
