About Rushcliffe Spencer Academy

Rushcliffe School is a highly successful 11-18 comprehensive school located in West Bridgford, Nottingham. In 2014 Rushcliffe was judged outstanding in all areas by Ofsted. In 2015 we were designated as World Class, achieving World Class Schools Quality Mark (<>). In 2016 Rushcliffe was nominated as Secondary School of the Year in the TES awards.

We believe that all pupils should be given the chance to shine brightly. Our pupils' academic achievement is outstanding. Value added measures and progress 8 show that students make exceptional progress. Headline figures for attainment have seen GCSE results for 5A*C including English and maths consistently above 80% over the past 6 years. We regularly enable A level students to access Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities. Of equal value to the school is the holistic development of each child. We are a value driven school and provide every opportunity for pupils to live our core values. 

These are:

Supporting Each Other
Trying Our Best
Listening to Others Opinions
Keeping Each other Informed
Being Proud of Our School
