About Raynes Park High School

We are committed to excellence and our mission is to develop resilient, respectful young people who make exceptional progress and achieve their full potential. Our unrelenting focus is to provide the best possible educational experience for our students within a well-ordered and purposeful learning environment.

We have very high expectations of our students and our ethos for learning and achievement is based on exceptional teaching, a challenging curriculum and high standards of behaviour. Through a culture of ambition and success, everyone at RPHS is driven towards continuous self and school improvement.

We also strive to provide a first class experience outside of the classroom. There is a wide and varied range of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities and these contribute as much to the development and success of our students as their academic experiences. We are the first state school in the country to be recognised as a BECSLink community and as part of this association; we have been awarded Tim Henman Scholarships for talented students to pursue their interests out of school.

The school has made rapid improvements in recent years; our most recent Ofsted inspection rated us as good in all categories and we are committed to further driving up standards in our quest to be exceptional in all that we do.
