I am proud of the broad and comprehensive range of extra-curricular clubs our exceptional PE department offers and the culture we have fostered that genuinely encourages student participation regardless of experience. The commitment of our students, their parents, staff and supporting coaches have all contributed to the successes Ruskin enjoyed in 2019 and we look forward to continuing our journey in 2020”.
