The community is very important to us as a school, as many of our students have grandparents and parents who have been taught at Rivington and Blackrod High School. It is a central part of our ethos that pupils should engage with their community, helping to make a contribution to society. We try to bring this ethos to life through engaging, motivating and inspiring learners of all ages across the community through school curriculum, extra curricular projects and extended services. It is through the interaction with local, national and international concerns that pupils learn about issues that affect us today and develop a sense of pride in their community.
Whilst our pupils learn from their interactions with the community, Rivington & Blackrod High School engages with and benefits the local, national and international community in a variety of ways. We work with organisations across our local community including:
- Local Primary Schools
- Bolton Arena
- The wildlife trust
- Serco Leisure Ltd
- Bolton at Home
- Bolton Wandererers Football in the Community
- Child Action North West
- The Eden Bus Project
- Greater Manchester Police
We aim to give as much back to our local community as we can, and if you have any ideas for ways in which we can work together, please don't hesitate to contact us.
