Rainford High School opened in 1940 to serve Rainford and the surrounding area. The school has been fortunate to have had a rebuild under the Building Schools for the Future that was opened fully in September 2013. The new building provides an inspiring and modern learning environment for the students and the teachers to focus on learning.
The school site has state of the art facilities for Science, Design and Technology and ICT. The new learning environment for Art, Music and Drama will enable our students to produce work of an even higher standard and produce performances the school can celebrate with its community.
Facilities such as the immersive space and the “show and tell” area allow teaching and learning to be delivered in a creative, engaging and imaginative way. Flexible teaching spaces are allowing the school to develop an engaging and challenging approach towards teaching and learning. The new canteen and extensive quad allow for an exciting new learning environment that all students can benefit from whilst in lessons or on their own time. Rainford High School is a school for the 21st Century.
The school is building on its considerable strengths to become the best school it can possibly be for the young people and the community it serves. Rainford High has a clear ethos of Everyone Matters, Everyone Helps and Everyone Succeeds, this is underpinned by core values of hard work, honesty and respect.
