Welcome to Rainford High Technology College


Rainford Sixth Form is the Post 16 provision of Rainford High School. We are housed in a newly refurbished purpose built unit with its own communal dining room, hi-tech study area, and classroom facilities as well as a resource centre and a student common room. The Sixth Form provides for approximately 300 students – large enough to facilitate a broad range of subjects yet still ensure that all students are known as individuals and are personally supported. We have nurtured and educated students for over 50 years and many of them have gone on to enjoy incredibly successful careers.

Speaking to current Year 10 and Year 11 students as you begin to make influential decisions about your future: one of the most important decisions for those wishing to continue into further education will be which Sixth Form you will chose to attend. At Sixth Form, you will grow and mature as a person and prepare yourself for adult life, so your choice of institution and courses are imperative. This decision is very personal to you, but at Rainford Sixth Form we feel that we can cater to all your individual needs and get you ready for your life after Sixth Form, whether that be progression into university, employment or an apprenticeship.

Facilities available

Rainford Sixth Form is situated in a newly refurbished building that provides an effective working environment for all of our students and staff. We always strive to encourage our students to be brilliant and to achieve this we support and provide them with the very best facilities and resources.

Students have easy access to a wealth of ICT and multimedia equipment, including digital cameras, camcorders and iMac studios in several subject areas. With a ratio of 2:1 (students to laptops and PCs), students never find themselves without the equipment they need during study periods.
