Location and Transport


Nestled in the Ryburn valley near picturesque Rishworth Moor and Rishworth Reservoir on the approach, Rishworth School affords beautiful views of the countryside with rolling green hills as far as the eye can see. Our Top Pitch overlooks stunning moors, fields, hills and the reservoir in the background. Rishworth is a tranquil and peaceful village in Halifax, West Yorkshire.

On our doorstep, you will find the Yorkshire Dales, the Peak District, but also big cities such as Manchester and Leeds and smaller towns such as Halifax, Huddersfield, Oldham and Rochdale to offer a variety of enrichment activities for our pupils.
