Rishworth School

Co-educational Prep and Senior School
"A thriving, co-educational school with its happy mix of day-pupils and boarders, Rishworth is an exceptionally friendly caring community deemed ‘outstanding’ in our most recent I.S.I. inspection"

Rishworth School is located in a beautiful Pennine valley within easy reach of the M1 and M62 and is just over 30 minutes from Manchester International Airport. The School has a mix of elegant older buildings and more modern facilities.

The quality boarding accommodation includes comfortable bedroom-studies, well-appointed and equipped boarding day rooms and a popular ‘Boarders Bar’ that provides a focus for evening activities. The school has excellent facilities ranging from a state-of-the-art Sports Club and Swimming Pool, to a wonderful Performing Arts Studio. 

The school offers a wealth of experience in looking after the children of parents from all over the UK and abroad. A broad, balanced  academic curriculum and stimulating teaching underpin our success by making work fun as well as challenging. 

A wide range of GCSE and A Level options provide students with opportunities to focus on their strengths and interests and through its curriculum Rishworth aims to draw out: a love of learning and the will to succeed; a sense of responsibility, self-discipline, purpose and fulfilment; a capacity for both self-reliance and co-operation and overall an appreciation of personal virtues and spiritual values.

Rishworth School has a long association with service families and with the military. All families who place their children in boarding invest a huge degree of trust in the school that they select. Service children are unique in their needs; few children have to grow up knowing that their parents might be posted to the other side the World and into the heart of conflict at any moment. for this reason, these children need to be supported by strong pastoral care that provides the security, confidence and solid background that these situations demand. At Rishworth we understand this, and provide such support.
