Students have high levels of self-confidence and excellent attitudes to learning. At RIS, we believe that our promotion of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and their physical well-being enables them to thrive. This helps to equip them to be thoughtful, caring and active citizens in school and in wider society.
RIS student leadership opportunities has many levels. Our Primary and Secondary Student Councils build a sense of community within the school by contributing to the wider curriculum, building independence and promoting excellence. Student Councils encourage students to get involved in issues that concern them in and around the school. Student leaders regularly meet with the school senior leaders to discuss school improvement from a student perspective.
Senior Secondary students (Sixth Form) have their own study centre and a student leadership structure including Head Boy and Head Girl and senior prefects. Students in all years also have the opportunity to take the lead in sports, eco-committees, debating and a range of events. Leadership and innovation is encouraged.
We recognise and honour our students’ accomplishments in all areas of school life throughout the year. Assemblies are weekly and through them, we regularly celebrate student achievements. Exceptional achievement is also shared with the wider school community through social media and school newsletters.
