RES Open Evening 2016

RES opened its doors to students from a wide range of local primary schools on Tuesday 20th September for its annual Open Evening.

Rydens Enterprise School RES Open Evening

The event is always a great occasion allowing different faculties to show off what their subject has to offer and students have the opportunity to take part in a whole range of different interactive activities. This allowed them to complete their ‘RES Passport’ and entitled them to a special prize at the end of the evening.

Science showcased a range of experiments, including using dry ice in some fantastic demonstrations. In Food visitors could design their own cakes to have as a tasty treat and when leaving DT they had produced a keyring to take away with them. There was also the opportunity to use some of the energy from their cake when taking on RES students in the sports challenges offered by PE.

As well as visiting all of the faculty areas, parents and their children were treated to a tasting provided by our caterers, a chance to see the plans for the new build and also to talk to current parents who make up our PTA and Parent Council. There was also the opportunity to hear more about RES joining The Howard Partnership Trust and learn about the exciting plans for this academic year and beyond.

The whole evening was a big success with parents leaving feeling very positive about RES and children expressing how much fun they had getting involved in all of the activities on offer. None of this would have been possible though without the work of staff and fantastic support of well over 100 of our students. Their input ranged from delivering speeches in the hall, acting as tour guides and showcasing what different faculties had to offer. They were wonderful ambassadors for the school and highlighted the benefits and what being a student at RES is all about.

We look forward to seeing the Year 6 students who visited when the new academic year gets underway in September 2017!

Meet an Astronaut Trip

Tuesday 12th July 14 students chosen by the science department for their effort, progress and enthusiasm for science got to go to Chandlers Field Primary School in West Molesey to meet Dr Helen Sharman OBE, the first British astronaut and the first woman to visit the Mir Space Station.

Rydens Enterprise School RES Students

The teachers at Chandlers Field had very kindly invited our students to attend the speech given by Helen and had also asked for them to lead some stalls at their Space Fair afterwards. We were really lucky that our students also got to have individual question and answer time with Helen and then later got signatures and selfies with her.

Here are some quotes from the students who were lucky enough to attend this exciting event:

We were especially selected for our achievements in science, we did some experiments with fizzy drinks for the students using Mentos, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, which they loved. It was a really fun trip.
Dylan (Year 7)

When I met Helen Sharman I realised how hard it is to become an astronaut, you need to be good at science, engineering, languages and be really fit. Helen told us about her training in Russia, it sounded really interesting.
Tom (Year 7)

The talk from Helen Sharman was really interesting, she explained things well and did demonstrations. After the fascinating talk we went outside and set up our RES stall. We had different experiments going on. We were able to get a picture with Helen and a signature. I thoroughly enjoyed the RES Science trip and especially the talk from Helen.

This was a fantastic opportunity for our budding scientists and so big thanks to Chandlers Field staff for organising it and for Mr McLennan for inviting our students to participate, it was a very inspiring afternoon.

Sad News of the death of an RES student

We were deeply saddened to hear the tragic news about the death of one of our students Dominick Naylor. Our thoughts and condolences are with Dominick’s family and those who were closest to him. I would like to reassure students, parents and carers that we have clear plans in place to support all members of our school community at this difficult time.  If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact the school.
