 The SLT at Ruskin are excited to welcome back all or students after the Summer break. We have an exciting year ahead following our best ever GCSE results.




Huge Congratulations to "Team Keele" who were the overall Yr9  winners from 8 schools at the Keele University Enterprise day and also Team  "University of social studies" who were the overall Yr10 winners. They have all worked so hard and their behaviour and attitude were expemplary.


Ruskin High has a good link with our local police force. We want to work together to make our community a great place to live and work. With this in mind we are holding our first police drop in on Tuesday, 19th March over lunchtime - 1.10pm to 1.50pm. Any student or member of staff is welcome to call in and chat to one of our local police officers.


'Class of 2019' prom will this year be held at Crewe Hall on Wednesday 26th June

 On the 14th December 2018 some year 9 and year 10 GCSE Food Preperation and Nutrition students hosted a coffeee morning for local senior citizens. The year 10 students made mince pies and the year 9 students practiced their communication skills by serving coffee and warm mince pies to our guests. Our school choir performed some christmas carols by the christmas tree getting everyone in the christmas spirit. A good time was had by all.

On Friday 16th December we had lots of activities in school in aid of 'Children in Need'. Sweets in a jar, Name the bear, Marbles in the jar, cake sale and lots more. We raised a fantastic £510.59. Thanks to all involved.


 On Thursday 8th November we held our annual Remembrance service. We were honoured to be joined by a friend of the school Sergeant Bernard Morgan. Special guests and the whole school community paid their respects while Jodie Manning and Jack Nichol (Year 11 Leadership Team) laid wreaths on the school memorial.










19th December - Caterlink are delighted to be working in Partnership with

Ruskin Community High School and we would like to tell you about us and our catering services in January 2017.

We love food and hope you will love what we provide for you at your school.

We embrace natural ingredients, love seasonal produce, and develop ethical trading with many of our suppliers. Our meat, fruit & vegetables and bakery is all sourced from suppliers as near to the school as we can. Our menu meets the SILVER Food for Life Standard.

Our menus are refreshed every term to ensure we reflect the changing seasons and trends from the high street. 95% of all our food is freshly prepared from scratch on site by our team, so if you have a fantastic recipe you would like us to consider, come and talk to us at any time you visit the facilities.  See our newsletter Caterlink to follow (910kb pdf)





11th December - As you know, we have had a normal day today in school because I felt that our site was safe enough for students and staff. The snow was quite deep, but it is soft and hasn’t posed a risk to health and safety. Students have played out in the snow at breaktimes, but they have been sensible and just had fun!

I am, however, concerned about tomorrow because the slush caused by the sun is likely to freeze over. Therefore, I will be taking a view late tonight to see how safe the site is. If there is any change to normal arrangements then I will ensure that we inform Signal 1 and also that we place an update on our website and Facebook feed.

Thank you for your support. Best wishes, Ella Brett, Headteacher








We live in a world where social media and, in particular, Facebook dominate. These methods of communication are, often, hidden within closed groups. Our school cannot and would never respond on Facebook with specifics about individual situations. To do so would be unprofessional and unforgiveable. In that sense, it is regrettable that we have no right of reply and that the full, accurate picture cannot be shared.

I would, however, like to remind parents/carers that posting material on Facebook which is intended to cause distress can amount to a criminal offence and may result in the school referring the matter to the police and other authorities for further investigation. It is not helpful to anyone to deal with matters in this way.

I would like to, respectfully, remind parents/carers that there is a school complaints policy and that if you have any issues with the school, whether that be a general concern or a specific issue in relation to your child, that you use the school's complaints procedure which allows for complaints to be fully considered and responded to. The absolute first point of contact should be with a relevant member of staff within school so that your complaint can be heard and resolved informally. If this does not reach a resolution then there is a formal complaints policy.

Thank you, in advance, for your support with this. You can, as always, email me directly if you would like to. This email address is shared regularly through newsletters and letters. mailto:brette@ruskincheshire.sch.ukk
