Rushcliffe School is a vibrant, inclusive, learning community with a determination to provide an outstanding education for all our pupils.

High expectations lead to an environment where pupils work hard, show respect and courtesy and are expected to try their best in all that they do.

Academic excellence is at the heart of all we do and we are rightly proud of the outstanding attainment and progress of our pupils. We are amongst the highest performing non-selective schools in the East Midlands at both GCSE and A Level.

Rushcliffe School is a happy and harmonious community where children feel safe and talents are nurtured. We offer an extensive extra-curricular provision, celebrating participation and achievement in sport and the arts. Many of our pupils have achieved regional, national and international success in their chosen sporting field. Music and drama productions are a regular feature of Rushcliffe life. In February 2014 we were recognised by Ofsted as an Outstanding School in all categories. I am proud to be the Head teacher of Rushcliffe; we have a talented staff that will always go the extra mile to support, nurture and challenge our fantastic pupils.
