Rishworth Because

Because your child will succeed academically.....

As an example, 2022 summer A-level results were outstanding.

  • For the third consecutive year over 80% of grades were at A* - C
  • Half of A-level grades are A* or A, again a consistent trend over the past three years
  • In BTEC and vocational qualifications, a 100% pass rate also saw 93% of students attaining the highest possible grades

Year 11 results headlines are:

  • Nearly 90% of GCSEs were passed with grades 4 – 9
  • Nearly a quarter of all GCSE results at Rishworth were with the best possible grades, from 7 – 9.

Because your child will be able to access some of the best Universities....

•University destinations of this year’s leavers included: UCL, Kings College London, Leeds, Bristol and Durham 
•100% of students applying to study medicine at University in the last 5 years were accepted and achieved their place.

Because at Rishworth we understand that life outside of the classroom is just as significant as the world within it.

This is supplemented by a full and diverse selection of over 40 enrichment and extension activities. From our renowned Ford Rugby Academy through to our Medical Society there’s something to simulate, entertain and light that creative spark; Duke of Edinburgh Award, F1 in Schools, a jazz and funk band, ski trips, artistic pursuits, sports teams and more. 

Because Rishworth combines a three hundred year history with up-to-the-minute innovation to create an atmosphere in which not only are traditional values cherished but in which invention and exploration is encouraged. Rishworth has high expectations of students’ behaviour and work ethic, but recognises that all students have individual strengths that we can celebrate and develop. Learning is about living at Rishworth, as our motto reminds us: Res Non Verba, Deeds not Words. We are firmly rooted in the security of the spectacular Yorkshire countryside but as a thriving boarding school we have a truly global outlook.

Because ultimately, what makes Rishworth special is that it is full of Rishworthians!

Res Non Verba
