Teaching and Learning
Learning at RMS is enjoyable, stimulating and diverse, and goes far beyond the delivery of subject knowledge by teacher to student.
We encourage our students to become happy and aspirational learners from their early years in Ruspini House, all the way through the School to Sixth Form in Hind House. Pupils of all ages are educated to be reflective and resilient learners who aim always to do their personal best; we encourage a "can-do" attitude and girls learn to take responsibility for their own learning. This approach is promoted throughout the School, from Ruspini House where children experiment through play to Hind House where Sixth Formers engage in original research via the Extended Project Qualification. Both in lessons and beyond the classroom, girls take responsibility for all aspects of their education; they emerge as creative problem-solvers, able to lead or contribute to a team. Above all, they have learned always to strive for their personal best and they understand that the key to success is attitude and that an effective work ethic translates dreams to reality.
RMS is a place of learning, and this includes staff as well as students. RMS staff are always working to improve their practice and many staff are engaged in active research, leading to further professional qualifications. Teachers are reflective, flexible and innovative, with the needs of the girls at heart; staff never cease to give generously of their time to add value to the girls' achievements.
