Moved our child from the School across the Road last year. I wish we had done it sooner. The best decision we have made by far. The level of teaching is first class. The change in our child is remarkable. A much happier child. Thank you to all the staff at Ruthin School.
Ruthin School traces its origins to Edward 1st's Welsh Conquest. There is no conclusive evidence supporting the school's assumed formation in 1284, but in "Ruthin School: The First Seven Centuries", author Keith Kenyon-Thompson (my English teacher at Ruthin School between 1971 - 1979) cites the Taxation of 1291 which lists a collegiate church and school in Ruthin. Postulating that Reginald de Grey likely founded the school, Kenyon-Thompson's claim is not contested. On this basis Ruthin School is the oldest in Wales, and one of the oldest in Britain. History is difficult to chart in the following centuries and the school was likely a victim of the dissolution of the church to which it was associated.The school was re-founded by the Dean of Westminster Gabriel Goodman in 1575. Goodman was a former Ruthinan. In 1595 Goodman successfully petitioned Queen Elizabeth 1st to grant the Tithes of Llanelidan to the school in perpetuity. The charter is on display in the school. Ruthin School has been co-educational since 1990 and in recent years has capitalized on strong student enrollment to develop the current campus and also to acquire additional property in town to cope with increased demand for boarding facilities.While students and parents have varying opinions about the school its history and recent academic results are remarkable and the school continues to play an important role in Ruthin's historical fabric.
