Named for Ruth Emily Westbrook (later Prideaux) (1930-2016) who attended our school from 1941-1948. She excelled at Games and gained colours in cricket, hockey, lacrosse and tennis, and was captain of cricket, tennis and West House. She trained as a PE teacher and later became a lecturer in Sports Science at Brighton University. She played cricket for England eleven times between 1957 and 1963 and revolutionised the women’s game in the early 1990s. In five years as England coach, she introduced sports psychologists, nutritionists, physiotherapists and sports science methods to the training regime. The England team won the World Cup at Lords in 1993 and Ruth was awarded UK Coach of the year. In 1995, she came and opened the Isaac Newton Building. Her mantra was “Mens sana in corpore sano”.
