Welcome to The Ruth Gorse Academy!

We hope that you and your child have appreciated the opportunity to get to know us through the Transition day and evenings. The first day in September for your child is Wednesday 5th September, and we will expect your child at 8.20am. Your child must be in full Ruth Gorse Academy uniform, and they must either bring a packed lunch or have money on their account through parent pay to buy lunch. The school day will finish at 2.45pm. On this busy first day, we will help your child learn their way around, provide them with a planner and equipped pencil case, and make sure they are ready for their first lessons! Please see below for the final transition letter, and for summer homework which we have posted out to you. You will also be receiving information on how to create a Parent Pay account, as we are a cashless academy. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, or check the below FAQs for more help. We really look forward to welcoming your child as a fully fledge Ruth Gorse student in September!
