“Debt” is a play by Ribcaged Productions and is touring Lancashire schools. It will soon be coming to Rhyddings. Check out the trailer!
Break dancing classes for all students will begin on Wednesday 05 November. They’ll be taught by two professional dancers. Classes will take place from 3.15-4pm and will cost £1 per session.
It’s been a great start to the year with Vivos, with students being awarded over 18 000 Vivos in total! Congratulations to the following students who were our top earners for this half term:
A special congratulations to Trinity, who has won a £10 voucher for Perfect Plaice on Union Road, as our top earner for the half term. It seems like we will have our first Year 7 Gold Club members before too much longer!
A reminder to students to pick up their orders from me, Monday to Thursday after school. There are lots of orders that have been waiting to be collected for a long time! Year 11 students should be saving up their Vivos for the prom tickets and leavers’ hoodies – it might seem like a long way off but you can be earning a lot of Vivos between now and then.
Finally, thank you to those students who have put their names forward to be Vivo Ambassadors. We’ll be meeting early next half term.
Ten schools across the district competed in wet and windy conditions across a very challenging course. Rhyddings took a team of 45 athletes across five year groups to participate in the championships.
Our biggest success story was that of Keturah Bradley in Year 9, who finished in 7th place out of 88 competitors.
This place secured her a spot in the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley town team where she will represent the district at Witton Park in February. From there Keturah will have the opportunity to represent Lancashire in the prestigious English schools X-Country championships, which is the biggest school athletics event in the world.
Good luck Keturah, and well done to all our athletes!

It’s been a big week for students earning Vivos, with nearly 3000 being awarded to students across the school. Congratulations to our top 10 earners for the week:
It looks like Year 7 are streaking ahead – Mrs Reilly must be very happy about that! Congratulations also to our top 5 form groups: 7RM, 7BN, 7AG, 8CW and 7KC. Our senior students have a bit of catching up to do – 7RM alone were awarded over 400 Vivos!
A reminder that if you are ordering your rewards from the ‘My School’ section of the vShop, you need to collect them from me after school Monday-Thursday. Keep an eye on other rewards that you purchase as some items require you to download an Argos voucher after purchase, and these vouchers do have an expiry date.
Finally, thank you to the students who have put their names forward to become Vivo Ambassadors. I’ll get you together next week to start talking about your roles.
Our recent leavers will be soon receiving letters inviting them to our annual Awards Evening at the Hope Centre on Wednesday 19th November 2014.
Anyone who hasn’t already put their name forward and wants instrument lessons in school, come and see Mr Phillips or Miss Booth ASAP!
More information coming soon!
