We would like to offer you a warm invitation to our annual open evening at our Upper School on Thursday, 16th September 2021 between 5pm and 8pm.

Throughout the evening, you’ll have the opportunity to explore our school grounds and chat with our teachers and students about the learning and life at Rivington & Blackrod High School and Sixth Form. There will be two Head Teacher talks in the Main Hall at 5.30pm and 6.30pm and our Head Teacher will be available, together with senior staff, to answer any questions you may have.

Our students, and the biggest advocates of our school, will be providing guided tours around the different faculty areas where you’ll have the chance to find out more about some of our subjects, participate in a range of activities, and discover how we deliver our school values.

We would also encourage parents to visit our Lower School on Friday, 17th September 2021 between 9.30am and 2.30pm to meet our Year 7 team. Tours will be available throughout the day and will take approximately 30 minutes.

Register in advance for the chance to win a brand new iPad and a family of 4 ticket to Go Ape Rivington.*

We hope you really enjoy visiting the school and feel welcomed and fully informed about what we can offer you at Rivington & Blackrod High School and Sixth Form.


Why should I choose RBHS?

Situated in an environment of extensive natural beauty, the school has over 450 years of history, and in recent years, the school has undergone a significant transformation. We have considerably invested in renovating the buildings, corridors and classrooms; creating new spaces for students to learn and enjoy. More importantly, it has transformed what happens in the classroom, putting students’ learning and pastoral care at the heart of the school.

In addition to providing excellent exam results, there is a real focus on developing the whole child; ensuring that students leave with the skills needed to succeed in their careers and play an active role in their communities.

We offer an extensive extra-curricular provision to encourage students to excel in arts and sports and opportunities to develop students’ leadership skills.
