‘Staff work together well as a team and are committed to the school’s ongoing success. The responses to the staff questionnaire were overwhelming positive’ Ofsted 2013

The Rawlett School is a successful and popular 11-16 community school and in recent years we have become the school of choice in our local community. Since being graded ‘good’ by Ofsted in 2013 we have continued on an upward trend of all areas of school improvement and in 2016 we celebrated sustained results.  Our P8 score was one of the top in Staffordshire and the highest locally.  We are proud of our broad and balanced GCSE based curriculum.
