A Better World

A Better World


R E S hosted the launch of a song, called “A Better World” which was written by R E S students with students from Heathside and performed by students from 9 different primary and secondary schools. The launch was to signify that the song has gone on sale on iTunes and Amazon and the proceeds, from sales of this song, will go to Shooting Star Chase Childrens’ Hospices – a really worthy cause.

Arkwright Scholarships Trust


The Arkwright Scholarships Trust is a registered charity that administers the most prestigious scholarship scheme of its type in the UK.

They identify, inspire and nurture future leaders in Engineering and technical (as opposed to aesthetic) Design. They do this by awarding Arkwright Engineering Scholarships, through a rigorous selection process, to high-calibre students in year 11.

Their Engineering Scholarships support students through their A Levels and encourage students to pursue Engineering or technical Design at university or through a higher-level apprenticeship and to take up careers in the field.

Every Scholarship is sponsored by industrial companies, universities, charitable trusts, trade associations, professional engineering institutions, the Armed Services, Worshipful Companies, industry regulators or personal donors.

We are very proud of our very own Gareth Littlewood who has successfully won this scholarship, this year, through his hard work and diligence; he has certainly set the bar for future engineers/scientists to follow at R E S.

University of Southampton Trip


On 23rd October 2015, Mrs Blackiston and Mr Hope took a group of Year 12 and 13 students to the University of Southampton, a Russell Group University, for a university Experience day.


University of Southampton Trip


We attended a talk in a lecture theatre on how to choose the right university and advice and guidance on selecting the right tailor made course specifications and cross curricular activities for our future career goals and needs. The advice we received on how to enhance our personal statements was also very useful.


Three student ambassadors then took us for a tour of the university and answered all the questions about university life and studying. It was a lovely surprise to bump into Carolina De Freitas, an ex RES student, on campus. She is studying for a degree in Oceanography with Physical Geography and is enjoying her time at Southampton University!



University of Southampton Trip


After lunch we attended a seminar about student finance and completed an activity to see how important it is to budget and keep track of our spending, if and when we decide to attend university or leave home. The results were interesting and surprising and some of us discovered that we would have to change our priorities whist living independently.

Thank you to Mrs Blackiston for arranging this insightful and informative visit for us.

RES Year 11 Big Interview


RES Big Interview Day 2015


On Thursday 22nd October volunteers from our local business community came to R E S to once again support our Year 11 Big Interview Day.


As an Enterprise School we are committed to preparing students in the best way possible for their future working lives. Earlier in the year students in Year 11 took part in CV workshops and have been writing their own CV and covering letter for a job that they have an interest in when they leave school. This was quite a challenge for some, as many students do not know what they would like to do post 16-18 education. These documents formed the basis of the interview today.


RES Big Interview Day 2015


27 volunteers, from a range of different businesses, arrived to interview around 200 students in one morning! We had an amazing response this year from the following companies ~

Recognition Express, DHL, Mount Business Services, DBA Speakers, Fasset Business & Property Solutions, Hersham Place Technology Park, IBM, The Rotary Club, Recognition Express, British Airways, British Gas, Attwood Burton Recruitment, Elementa Consulting, St Peters Church-Hersham and WNS.

Without such support this day would not be possible so we are enormously grateful for all that took time out of their valuable working day to help our students.


RES Big Interview Day 2015


The Main Hall was the base for the interviews and each student had been given a 20 minute interview time. Students arrived nervously but looking extremely smart in their business attire. They were allocated to an interviewer and spent time discussing the job role they had applied for whilst the interviewer asked them many different questions about themselves, their knowledge about the job and their suitability. This experience of applying for a job and having an interview will be, in some cases, the first time for our students. The students were then given feedback from the interviewer, which they can use along with thier interview skills, to take forward for a real life interview situation either for a job or a college place. All students also received a Certificate signed by their interviewer to confirm their attendance of the day.


RES Big Interview Day 2015


The interviews were finished by 12.00pm with each interviewer seeing around 5-6 students each. A debrief of the day and lunch took place in the Business & Enterprise Suite with an opportunity for the various businesses to network and feedback on the days events.


A huge thank you to all the volunteers that gave up their valuable time to help interview our students today. Without them this day would not be possible.
