End of the Year Wishes

As their academic year comes to an end earlier than planned, we say Good Luck & Goodbye to our year 13 and year 11 students today. Some of who will be returning to study with us come September, others who we wish all the best for their futures!

At our Year 11 Goodbye Huddle this morning RIC had its biggest Google Meet since lockdown began with nearly 100 students and members of staff joining to say farewell to this amazing year group, lots of whom have been with us since Year 7.

The end of the year wouldn’t have been right with our annual awards ceremony. There were 30 awards in total – an outstanding achievement award for each subject plus some special commendations. Jamie was our biggest winner with no less than five awards, including the honour of the ‘ Mr “I know the Casio Calculator Manual by Heart”’ award!

With messages of goodbye of good luck from the Heads of School, Form Tutors and teachers and even some speeches from the students, there was lots of laughing, singing and even a few tears. To quote Leighton, our Co-Head of Lower School, this has undeniably been ‘our best ever Year 11 yet.’

Each year 11 student was sent an E-Card for them all signed & featuring messages from the RIC staff.

Good Luck & Best of wishes from all of us at RIC!

Stitching Together

Over the Easter holidays one of our brilliantly creative students, Ellis, has been volunteering alongside her Grandad to make scrubs for the NHS Nurses & Doctors. A big well done and THANK YOU from everyone at RIC!

Invicta Maths Challenge

A group of students from year 10 and 11 participated in the Invicta Secondary Team Maths Challenge which was hosted at Invicta Grammar School in Maidstone on Tuesday 19th November 2019 . One of our two teams came in 3rd place out of the twelve participating teams.

The competition consisted of four rounds, the format very similar to that of the Regional and Final Team Maths Challenge hosted by the UK Maths Trust every year.

  • Round 1 consisted of 15 worded problem solving questions
  • Round 2 involved puzzles with missing numbers in squares
  • Round 3 consisted of 11 mathematically challenging problem solving questions
  • Round 4 was a ‘relay’ problem solving task during which students had to find the solution to a problem which represented the value of a letter. Students then had to use the values of previous letters in subsequent problems in order to find the following solutions. 

The students demonstrated great team work skills and they had to rely on each others’ strengths in order to solve the problems which were from various areas of mathematics.

Congratulations to Eric, Catharine, Crystal, Justin, Nina, Neal, Jerry and William who will be participating in the national UKMT Team Maths Challenge in March 2020..

A Day Out In Margate

The year 11 Art and Photography students ventured out of the college and headed off to sunny (rainy) Margate. The sun was definitely not shining but we headed out with our jackets on and cameras at the ready, in search of lots of intersecting research and material for their personal projects.

Year 11 Geography Coursework Visit

On Tuesday 5th March Year 11 Geography students made their way to Reculver, Herne Bay to undertake fieldwork for their unit three coursework assessment. With individual hypothesis selected and refined, students spent the day carrying out a range of data collection techniques including wave frequency counts, cliff recession measurements and beach profiles, ready to analyse back at college. Thankfully the bright and sunny weather held out for the duration of the visit and students returned to college with a wealth of data to support their GCSE coursework assignments.
