About Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy

Dear Applicant

I am delighted to welcome you to Bishop Rawstorne as you consider a prospective career within our vibrant Christian community.

Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy has been providing high quality Christian education for over 50 years and it is this Christian message and ethos that underpins the core values that allow us to ensure that students are able to achieve a rounded academic, spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.  Unlike other Church of England schools, Bishop Rawstorne is truly a community school with the vast majority of our students being drawn from the main foundation parishes.

This is an outstanding school with a proven track record of academic excellence and meeting the needs of all our students regardless of age or ability.  We have an inspiring, innovative and driven teaching staff ably supported by a talented, motivated support staff who are able to provide the very best teaching and learning experiences for all of our students.  All of this is underpinned by a rich and varied extra-curricular programme that complements and extends the whole-school curriculum.

We are at the forefront of Initial Teacher Training, Continuous Professional Development and school-to-school support locally, regionally and nationally and have enjoyed Training School status since 2000.  In 2012 our school was designated as a Teaching School by the National College of Teaching and Leadership in recognition of our sustained and proven track record of excellence in these areas.  This allows us to further develop not only our staff and the teachers of the future, but also to support other schools in their own improvement programmes, ensuring outstanding outcomes for students not just at Bishop Rawstorne but across the region and nationally.

It remains our challenge to ensure that the care and support we provide to our students, our nurturing yet challenging environment and the outstanding academic attainment achieved year-on-year continues to make Bishop Rawstorne the school of choice for parents.  We are proud of our school and all of its students and in turn we have the highest expectations of all those who attend Bishop Rawstorne, pride in our uniform, respect and tolerance for each other, drive and motivation in the classroom.

I hope that our website ( provides you with the information you need to make an informed decision but should you require further information or a tour of the school please contact my Deputy Headteacher Peter Rawlinson or my PA Sheila Glover on 01772 600349.

Yours sincerely

Mr P Cowley
