About Rivington and Blackrod High School
As a split site, Church of England voluntary controlled 11-18 High School and Sixth Form, Rivington and Blackrod’s distinct Christian ethos is exhibited through its commitment to Community, Standards and Inclusion. The school, as an ‘open Church school’, aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of a Christian belief and practice, valuing all students equally, and as individuals from their variety of racial, ethnic, faith and non-faith backgrounds and cultures.
From the start of the school term, we have challenged every student to discuss what characteristics define us as a school. These are the qualities that we would hope any student would develop and value during their time at Rivington and Blackrod. Following their feedback we decided upon:
To embed this within our culture we have now planned year round activities, assemblies and awards which recognise the importance of our school values.
Our Head Boy and Head Girl stated, "Our school values for We are RBHS, underpin the values that we as a collective community of students, decided were important and are those which we should advocate within our daily actions, behaviours and words, whilst within our school and local community. Respect, Belonging, Honesty and Support are key things that we will strive to demonstrate, in order to be the very best that we can be."
Due to the students passion for these values we have ensured that we have bold and bright displays around the school site and have incorporated it as part of our classroom language.
