From the Rickmansworth School
Successful partially selective comprehensive academy Rickmansworth School has seen significant gains in student achievement across all key stages.
Ofsted recognised us and gave us an excellent rating with outstanding attributes (October 2017).
At Rickmansworth School, we have implemented major improvements that have been recognised by Ofsted for their positive effects on student success and preparation for adult life.
Our dedication to advancing the School and making it great in every way has been noted favourably by Ofsted.
Students only have one chance to complete their secondary school, thus at Rickmansworth School, we strive to give every student the greatest possible education.
All of our pupils should graduate from Rickmansworth School as well-rounded young adults, and we take great pride in offering a robust extracurricular schedule that includes travels abroad.
As a result, the school underwent a significant renovation project that resulted in the building of an extraordinary new sports hall, an amazing new Sixth Form centre, a specialised Film Studies suite (complete with a cinema), a specialist theatre/drama studio, a swimming pool, and a dining hall.
We are continually exploring for ways to improve the resources available to our children and have a strategic improvement plan to renovate the entire school campus.
