I would like to personally welcome you to Rivington and Blackrod High School and Sixth Form.
We provide an excellent education in all areas of the curriculum and learning opportunities which help students to recognise their unique qualities, develop their skills and ambitions and achieve their aims in the rapidly changing technological world of today. Rivington and Blackrod High School is a Church
of England voluntary controlled 11-18 High School founded in 1566 by
the Bishop of Durham. The school has held an important place in this
community for centuries, many of our students have parents and
grandparents who themselves were educated here. We want every young person to succeed, knowing and feeling that they
matter. We provide the very best care, guidance and support to ensure
that they feel safe and can grow as successful learners and caring
citizens. We give all students the power to take control, manage and
direct their own learning and develop their future careers and
aspirations. Positive relationships are very important to us at Rivington and
Blackrod High School and we do all that we can to foster an environment
in which they can grow and flourish. At Rivington and Blackrod High
