Rushcliffe students spend Easter at the Kremlin!

russia001Twenty-eight students from Rushcliffe School woke up on Easter Sunday in Moscow! The group of sixth-formers flew out the day before on a 5-day school history trip to visit the Russian capital and the iconic city of St Petersburg.
Russia is not your average destination for a school trip but Rushcliffe offers its students the unique opportunity of visiting the country to support their A Level studies on the 1924-91 period of Russian History.

Accompanied by four of their teachers, the teenagers spent Easter Sunday and Monday enjoying a packed itinerary of sightseeing around Moscow's great sights, including the Kremlin, Red Square, the Great Patriotic War Museum and the Cosmonaut Museum.

Teacher Dominic Orchard said: "We were really struck by how huge the buildings were. Our Russian guide told us told how everything in Moscow must be the biggest and best! The Kremlin was enormous. The word Kremlin translates to 'Fortress' and you can understand why."

Winter School Games

The best teams from across the City and County met at the Winter School Games in a variety of sports over two days of competition recently. Rushcliffe School teams qualified in badminton (KS3), trampolining (KS3 and 4), handball (3 teams) and indoor rowing all representing Rushcliffe area.
The indoor rowing team won their event overall and had some outstanding individual performances. The team was Archie Symes (gold), Simeon Grigorov, Jack Scott, Harry Bugg (gold), Jake Hicklin (gold), George Harris (silver), Katie Page (gold), Rachel Herborn (silver), Megan Hill, Shaila Gallagher, Jess Munn and Rachel Heap (gold).

Question Time

On Thursday, 12 March 2015, Rushcliffe School held their third annual Question Time event,—where local political leaders and representatives are invited to answer topical questions in front of Sixth Form students—which was even more pertinent this year due to the forthcoming general election. We decided that it was necessary to change the format of the event this year by asking more controversial questions and allowing spontaneous audience participation in order to make it a more engaging and, most importantly, informative afternoon.
