Rishworth School

Independent Boarding & Day School

Rishworth School is a forward thinking, innovative day and boarding school that retains traditional values. We are an independent school with the freedom to offer an educational experience personalised to each child’s needs. We are a charity organisation originating from the Wheelwright legacy of 1724 where all our income is invested in the education of our children and the school. Our values are based on Christian ethics and we welcome those of all faiths or non to our community.


The school has existed for 300 years and occupies magnificent buildings within 140 acres of countryside within the beautiful Ryburn Valley.
