Learning the Ropes Certificates

As ringers pass each of their Learning the Ropes levels, their achievement is published nationally in the Ringing World, our own quarterly newsletter ART Works and here on the ART website.

The following ringers registered on the Learning the Ropes scheme have had their progress nationally acknowledged by their ringing teacher. Bell handling and foundation skills are teacher assessed. All subsequent levels are assessed by quarter peal. To pass Level 5 a ringer must have rung a minimum of six quarter peals. Well done!
