  • Ruskin Transition Day 2017

    Published 05/07/17

    Over two hundred Year 6 students, who have successfully secured a place to join the Ruskin family in Year 7 from September, joined us for a jam-packed transition day yesterday (4th July). The day started with a welcome assembly from Ms Wyles, with students then joining their form group for a tour of the Academy and to spend some time getting to know the new faces they will be spending, we are sure, seven very happy years with! Students filled out their ‘Ruskin leaves’ on which they detail their aspiration and dreams for the future, these will be revisited at various points during their years with us as we see them grow and flourish.

  • Ruskin Students Win Grantham Heat Stages of SlamJam

    Published 18/05/17

    The Priory Ruskin Academy hosted the Grantham heats of the Rotary’s 2017 SlamJam competition on Tuesday 16th May. SlamJam is a performance based writing competition for secondary school students. Choosing to write a poem, a story or a dramatic monologue, students consider the effect they want to have on an audience, and craft their writing accordingly. There are few rules…performances must last no more than 3 minutes; and no costumes or props are allowed. It is all about the quality of the writing, and of the performance. The process is ultimately competitive, but the journey is about the enjoyment of creative writing, and sharing it with an audience.
