Year 9 and 10 had the honour of meeting Mike Haines OBE, who shared his personal story of his brother's death at the hands of ISIS.

It was an incredibly moving morning and the impact that his story and message had on our students was clear.
This week we held our first Careers Week at Ryburn. As part of this, we were delighted to welcome professionals from a variety of careers into school to speak to students about their jobs, and the route that they took to get there.
