Welcome to Raynes Park High School
I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher at Raynes Park High School which prides itself on academic, sporting and creative activity. We have a rich history, clear identity and extremely strong community. We pride ourselves on the positive relationships that exist in the school and the calm, friendly learning environment.
My drive and ambition is to ensure that Raynes Park High School provides an exceptional learning experience for our students, and our commitment to academic excellence and personal well-being is at the core of everything we do.
Central to our school motto 'Inspiring Learning; Achieving Excellence' is the firm belief that students learn best within a secure, well-disciplined learning environment and we are totally committed to supporting all of our students on their RPHS journey. We are exceptionally proud of the school and the values that are central to its ethos and success; we celebrate the comprehensive intake and diverse nature of the RPHS community and ensure that our core values underpin all we do.
The school has made rapid improvements in recent years; our most recent Ofsted report (October 2015) rated us as good in all categories and we are committed to further driving up standards in our quest to be exceptional in all that we do.
We know how challenging it can be to choose the right school for your child but if you do choose RPHS, we know this will be the start of a long, happy association with our school and we warmly invite you to be part of our future.
Our school motto is:“INSPIRING LEARNING; ACHIEVING EXCELLENCE”
It articulates what we aspire to in every lesson and for every student; that they are inspired by their lessons and enjoy their learning. We believe that this lies at the heart of outstanding achievement and the development of independent learners. It builds upon our original school motto - “To each his need, from each his power” – but does not replace it.
Our ethos is based upon the eight Raynes Park High School Values that encapsulate everything we strive our school to be and our learners to become:
You will have use of our Sixth Form Centre which offers a welcoming learning environment with space for quiet study and relaxation as well as access to facilities including Science labs, Art and Photography facilities and Design and Technology rooms in the main school. Our Sixth Form building consists of a number of teaching rooms, complete with interactive whiteboards, an ICT room, a fully-equipped Performing Arts studio, a Sixth Form Common Room, a Learning Resources/quiet study area, tutorial rooms for one-to-one sessions and offices for the Head of Sixth Form and Administrative support.
Applying for university, higher education or finance is challenging. We will give significant support by means of the Future Pathways lessons, Higher Education and Finance Information Evenings, Interviews practice, Careers Seminars, UCAS Fair, individual UCAS preparation interviews and support with Open Days and Summer Schools. The Sixth Form also has a well stocked Further Education /Higher Education Careers Library.
