Rutlish School - an update

Rutlish School gives YMT an update on successes this term:

Rutlish Yr 7 football successRutlish win South London Cup Final!

Rutlish School Year 7 football team have won the South London Cup Final!

Year 7 boys from Rutlish School, Merton, had a day to remember as they cruised to a 4-0 victory over Bishop Thomas Grant School, Streatham.

The result never looked in doubt as Rutlish went 2 goals up early. A further goal came before half time and with another early goal at the start of the second half, the result looked comfortable.

A massive congratulations to all the boys who have now completed the double having won the Merton League earlier in the year.

Rutlish pupil secures place on this year’s WE Scholarship trip to India to build a school

Joseph McIntyre, from Rutlish School has successfully secured a place on this year’s WE Scholarship trip to India to help build a school; the trip will take place in August.

This is the second time that a Rutlish pupil has been selected for the scholarship; a former student took part in the programme two years ago. And as well as being a great opportunity for Joe, it is also a reward for the school.

This is a fantastic opportunity as Joe has been selected as one of 30 outstanding students (in the UK) to win this once in a lifetime experience.

WE is a charity that Rutlish as been working with for some years, raising much needed funds for Free the Children. WE is at the centre of empowerment, giving students the opportunities to volunteer to make a change in their communities and the world.
