Welcome back to the new term and the new year. September is always an exciting time of the academic year with fresh possibilities for students, staff and school. We have had excellent A level results with 28% of our Sixth Form students going to Russell Group Universities and a positive increase in the number of students returning to Rainford Sixth Form. Our GCSE results have once again been good with more than 7 out of ten students leaving with 5 good GCSEs and 78% achieving A*-C in both English and Maths qualifications. This gives us a firm foundation to continue to strive for excellence at Rainford High.
We look forward to welcoming back students into the next year of their education and we are also delighted to open our doors to 290 Year 7 students. Our aim is to live our ethos of "Everyone Matters, Everyone Helps and Everyone Succeeds" and ensure that all our students have an excellent year of learning and development.
As a school we have been looking and developing strategies to ensure we do our job better but we also need the help of parents and students to move forward by supporting us by working hard and supporting the school in achieving the highest standards. The example of Team GB at the Olympics should inspire us all to look at how focus on improving, hard work and commitment can bring excellent results. To achieve these standards we all need to show character and determination and over come the challenges to achieve our very best.
The academic year promises to be a busy one as we look to continue to enrich our curriculum and deliver excellence in lessons, improve student outcomes and the broader aspects of school life. The school will consult on becoming an Academy and forming a Multi Academy Trust. This consultation will begin on the 9th September with the launch of the consultation website, details of public meetings and dates for one to one drop in sessions.Full details of the consultation process will come to you all via letter, email and the school website.
Our expectations of everyone involved in the school are simple; We expect your best days work every day.
