What says..

Unlock your sons. RMS girls seem much younger and fresher than their more streetwise grammar peers and are just the kind you would love your boys to bring home for dinner. A school where girls can be girls and sing, act and run their way to well-roundedness in a safe and nurturing environment. Parents say the school is ‘very into tradition’ and this feeling permeates its very fabric. RMS is the only school in the country still to do ‘drill’: a spectacle of …

Special Education Needs

At RMS we recognise that at some stage in their academic careers all pupils will require specific help of some kind. We endeavour to monitor the pupils throughout and offer a number of services to support their learning. Individual subject teachers, form staff and special needs staff liaise closely to address this area. During the first term of Year 7 we undertake a literacy-screening programme that assesses spelling, comprehension and word recognition. This indicates whether extra support is required and pupils may be asked to attend the Spelling or Reading Skills or, if specific help is necessary, one-to-one support sessions can be arranged with our special needs teacher. The school offers a programme of specialised help for those who experience dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties and parents are welcome to contact the SENCo if they have concerns in this or any other area. Gifted pupils benefit from a wide range of national competitions and participation in FORUM, a special programme for gifted children, in addition to differentiation within the daily curriculum. Specialist support can also be provided for pupils with English as an additional language. 09-09
