New Starters Induction Day 2024

The School was excited to welcome Year 6 pupils for their Induction Day.

Our new cohort of pupils starting in September were greeted with their brand new House T-shirts. After lunch, many pupils participated in various activities such as cooking, science, art, and more! In their houses, they spoke to some of the current Year 7 pupils and received advice and tips from the Sixth Form prefects.

A few of our Royal Russell pupils from the Junior School shared their thoughts on the day:

"I found it very fun and exciting to see the people that would soon be in our class. I was in disbelief to see how many people there were and all the people that would be in my House." - Eddie

"It was amazing to see everyone in my House! I have made some new friends and hoping that I will make more. It was exciting to meet people in my House and getting to know each other and getting used to where everything is." - Izzy

The Rush Hour Concert had an exceptionally high quality of performances, showcasing musicians across many of our year groups. 

This week, the Music Department hosted the twice termly ‘Rush Hour Concert’.

These concerts are designed to promote musicians at all stages of their development, and the quality of performances on Wednesday was exceptionally high. We heard some amazing performances by Isabella (Year 9), Annabelle (Year 7), Paris (Year 7), Yasmin (Year 9), Louise (Year 10), Maisy (Year 10), Isabella (Year 9), Lara (Year 12), and a wonderful virtuosic display on the Piano by Anxo (Year 10).

Congratulations to overall winners Royal Russell Junior School, with Elmhurst School and Laleham Lea School runners-up.

His show on the 'The Maths and Magic of Rubik's Cube' took the young people on a journey through the construction of not just the cube, but numbers themselves. It was a show full of mathematics and magic. A huge thank you to Mrs Smith as well as our Sixth Form helpers for coordinating the competition part of this successful event.
