6th Form Committee

We have a strong 6th Form committee of students who meet regularly to represent student views and share ideas. We enjoy working as part of a student - teacher team and feel it is valuable opportunity to promote young leaders within our school community.

The 6th Form Committee helps students to develop confidence and to contribute to the running of the 6th Form in a professional and responsible manner. They are able to raise areas of concern and suggest solutions to issues that face them.  It also provides students with an opportunity to be an active citizen and to help us to promote the aims of the 6th Form at Ryde Academy.

Last year the student committee was actively engaged in:

  • Reviewing the dress code for 6th Form students.
  • Selecting charity initiatives to support and organising events.
  • Suggesting reward trips and social events.
  • Looking at resource requirements for the new 6th Form Campus.
  • Discussing PHSE activities and the Tutor support programme.

Well done to the Young Enterprise team who won ‘Company of the Year’ and went through to the regional finals which were held in May. They received the award for best trade stand, and Katie won the individual entrepreneur award for the Isle of Wight!

The team, Multi-ply, worked really hard on designing, producing and marketing their desk tidy products, including holding trade stalls at Tesco and on Wightlink car ferry. Well done to all of you.

Thank you to everyone that participated. We couldn't have done it without you and the students really appreciated it.








6th Formers Health Promotion Campaign

posted 6 Dec 2016, 02:24 by Nat Admin

Thank you to the Year 13 Double Award Health & Social Care class for sending us information about work they have been doing as part of their Public Health unit.  They investigated various health promotion campaigns as well as delivering their own campaign.

The students carried out a Sugar Smart campaign about the dangers of sugar and how to live a healthier lifestyle by changing sugar habits. They went to four Year 7 form groups to deliver a presentation about sugar and work on activities which involved the children matching the food products to the amount of sugar they thought was in them. This has expanded their knowledge of sugar, helped them to make healthier choices and shocked them when they found out about the hidden sugars that are in foods they eat on a day-to-day basis. The 6th formers also put up a display board in the canteen promoting the Sugar Swap and Sugar Smart campaigns from Change 4 Life.

One of the form tutors who saw their sugar campaign said "Good introduction with questions included to engage students with the class. Really good presentation and important choice of topic, thank you".

The students said "we think we have helped to change the opinions of these children, as they were all really shocked by the sheer amount of sugar in some foods. The before and after questionnaires also showed how much they had learnt about sugar and the guidelines surrounding sugar".

A Level Psychology students creating memories

posted 10 Nov 2016, 02:02 by Nat Admin

Mrs Robert's Psychology students finished their first topic in style. 

Students created posters in their own time to help them revise the topic of memory. They decided to take it up a level by making the posters interactive. They used different materials to make information stand out: coins, glitter, lego, nothing was safe!

Students voted for the best poster - Katie Eliott was declared the winner followed closely by runners up Abi Thomson and Lauren O'Rourke. Congratulations to all - Keep up the hard work!

Kieran receives Lord Lieutenant's Cadet award

Congratulations to Kieran for his recent appointment as the Lord Lieutenant's Cadet. 

Kieran explained 'as the Lord Lieutenant's Cadet it is my role to accompany him on royal visits and remembrance services. It provides me with the opportunity to meet people like the Princess Royal among others.  It's something I take a deep sense of pride in as it is quite the opportunity to be nominated and an honour to receive. Equally it's a positive way to show a strong sense of community cohesion between the younger generation and the The Lord Lieutenant as well as the Local Council and charitable organisations'.
