  • Future Engineers Study Local Environment

    Published 01/02/18

    Children from Year 4 braved the elements on Wednesday to visit the Queen Elizabeth Park, intrigued in their learning about famous buildings and bridges. Through wind and rain they battled.  They had a look at the world famous Aquatics Centre, designed by Zaha Hadid, the London Stadium, the Accelor Mittal Orbit​ and the many bridges of the park.  Children looked at the different bridge designs in the park, and those they encountered on route.

    Published 23/01/18

    Last Friday, Ranelagh held its annual Spelling Competition Final. After many rounds, spelling dozens and dozens of supremely difficult words, Ms Tsui and Ms Scott found the final four - Diamond, Gabriel, Manar and Sarisha.

  • Junior Citizens

    Published 23/01/18

    Tate and Lyle has a long history of supporting its local communities, dating back to the 19th Century and the philanthropy of the co-founders Henry Tate and Abram Lyle.

    Today, this is translated into donating space at the refinery site for the Junior Citizens Programme run by the Metropolitan Police and organised by our very own Mrs Lawrenson.  Other agencies involved include the Fire Brigade, St John’s Ambulance and the Environment Agency.  Children are taken through potentially life-saving scenarios such as ‘stranger danger,’ contacting the emergency services, fire awareness and safety.

    Last month, the whole of Ranelagh’s Year 5 visited the Tate and Lyle factory at the Thames Refinery.   The children learned an incredible amount of information about keeping themselves safe and as Mrs Barzoi, Ranelagh’s Year 5 Lead, stated, “This is an important event for Year 5 children, it makes them develop the skills that will allow them to make the right choices in risky situations.”

  • Beat the Street - Best in Newham!

    Published 23/01/18

    Back in the Autumn term pupils at Ranelagh were rigorously travelling to and fro on Newham streets, all in the name of the annual Beat the Street competition. Beat the Street, delivered on behalf of Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation and the Borough of Newham, is a competition aimed at inspiring millions of people to eat better, get active and be healthy by walking, cycling or running.


    Children at Ranelagh were all given their very own exclusive Beat the Street ID cards which were then tapped a plethora of times on Beat the Street boxes, fastened to street lamps, trees, fences or anywhere of interest across the borough. This year the competition stiffened, with schools competing against each other across the whole of East London rather than within the borough. Ranelagh is very proud to have placed 7th overall, with an amazing 64,395 points (a near 50,000 increase from last year). Ranelagh was also the only Newham school who placed in the top 10! Well done Ranelagh!

  • Poetic Perfection

    Published 07/01/18


    Ranelagh pupils have a passion for penmanship, demonstrated by their love of writing both in and outside of the classroom. Shree, a pupil in Year 3, put pen to paper last term and entered the Young Writers poetry competition, crafting a beautiful and poignant piece titled ‘Fire and Water.’ His poem was recognised for its brilliance and awarded with a place in the Young Writers Anthology, which will be publicised this term.

    Young Writers is an organisation that works with schools, parents and young writers across the world and has been doing so successfully for over two decades. Their aim is to promote a love of poetry and creative writing by running annual competitions aimed at celebrating young writers and young voices. Shree’s poem was submitted for entry into this year’s poetry competition, titled ‘Rhymecraft,’ and was selected for publication; an amazing and prestigious accomplishment.

  • Ranelagh Goes Royal

    Published 19/11/17

    Last week Ranelagh was transformed into an elegant castle bustling with Kings, Queens, Princes, Princesses (and everything regal in between) as Key Stage One held their own Royal Banquet. Festooned with Tudor and medieval decorations, our very own ground floor lunch hall became quite the site to behold. 

    All of Year 1 and 2, inspired by their learning  in the Ranelagh Curriculum, created and attended their very own 'Royal Banquet' complete with music, drink and dancing. The 'Ranelagh Royals' enjoyed medieval and Tudor dancing while they dined and were waited on, hand and foot, by their servants and paiges Mrs. Sheikh, Mrs. Begum, Mrs. Patel and even our Deputy Head Mrs. Welburn.
