Important Message to Students and Staff

The Government has issued temporary guidance (due to be reviewed on Wednesday 26th January 2022) because of the surge of Omicron Corona virus cases nationally that ALL secondary school students must wear masks at all times including in classrooms when returning to school for testing on Tuesday 4th January 2022 and full return to school on Wednesday 5th January 2022 unless exempt.

Please can all parents and carers ensure that their child has a mask with them and available to wear at all times. Thanking you in anticipation of your support for a smooth return to school.

Voice Of The Excluded Student

Our Ethos

At Rise Academy, we aspire to be an inspirational Centre of Excellence, where even the most troubled young people can re-engage with learning, and develop the skills and attitude to life that will enable them to fulfill their potential and contribute to society.

We are experts in inspiring young people to re-engage with learning and rediscover their direction. Our years of success are born out of our proven approach and our profound belief in the positive potential of all young people.

With 100% post-16 progression, home support that is second to none and a one-to-one tuition for pupil-premium students, we lead the way in transforming young people with problems into young people with prospects.

Rising Stars!
