Last day! – Non uniform notice

Good Morning, In recognition of Mrs Nuttall’s retirement I have decided to hold a non-uniform morning tomorrow at a charge of £1 which will be donated to her chosen charity, Derian House.

School will close at 12pm and the Belthorn bus has been booked for this time.

Thanks, and have a good summer holiday!

Lancashire Book of the Year

Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School was chosen to represent the county in the 30th year celebration of Lancashire Book of the Year. We were very honoured to be part of this very prestigious award and nearly all of our Year 9 students were involved in the process, which was organised by Mrs Stevens.
The award is voted for by Year 9 students in twelve high schools around the county. Each school is given a collection of books, submitted by publishers as being the best books they had produced for the 12-14 age group. The young people then read and shortlist the books before choosing the overall winner.

From a list of 92 fiction titles, which students at our school read,  a shortlist of eleven was announced on 11 March 2016. There was something for everyone – adventure, romance, mystery, horror – and each one is a really good read, endorsed by the young people of Lancashire.

The young judges, including Bethany Beresford and Thomas Gales-Ellis, met on Friday 17 June to vote for the overall winner, and the name of the winner was announced at the 30th anniversary celebrations and presentation of the award on Saturday 18 June 2016 in the Council Chamber, County Hall, Preston.

The winner of the 2016 Book of the Year award is Holly Bourne for ‘Am I Normal Yet?’

Congratulations to our 2016 Rhyddings Oscars Winners!

IMG_20160712_190836The annual Oscars’ ceremony was well attended on Tuesday night.  Students and families listened to a talk from ex-student Lindsey Sagar, who works as a freelance artist and designer and travels the world for both work and pleasure.  We loved the main messages which were to chase your dreams, not the pay packet; and spend your life working on your passion and take responsibility for your choices.  Thanks Lindsey for taking time out of your busy schedule to share your experiences.

We are looking to put on a mini event in September for the year ten students who had to miss out last night due to their trip to Amsterdam – watch this space for details!
