Working with the local community is important to everyone at Rastrick High School
Many facets of school life extend beyond the classroom and into the wider community which enriches relationships between home, school and the community, to everyone’s benefit.
We value the excellent relationships with our associate schools which have resulted from many years of working collaboratively. We have always had strong links with employers and continue to do so and through our extended schools programme we are developing innovative working partnerships with local agencies and organisations.
Rastrick High School has a strong commitment to build strong working relations with the local community and the local people. Businesses and groups are encouraged to work with us to build strong links that go beyond education.
Our Student Leaders from Years 7-11 and Sixth Form regularly work with local Community Projects to support and have input into things that are happening in the community in which they live.
We have strong links with our local primary schools and work together to ensure a smooth and seamless transition between schools.
The transition programme starts during Year 6 when the Head of Year 7 visits the associate schools to meet our new students. At the end of the Summer Term we hold a welcome evening for the parent/carers who are new to the school. New students attend for two full days to have the opportunity to meet their form tutors, other members of their form and their new teachers. Sixth Form students are on hand to help and support the students and to make them feel at home in the new environment. Our Associate schools are listed below:
- Castlefields Infant School
- Carr Green Primary School
- Copley Primary School
- Field Lane Primary School
- Fixby Junior & Infant School
- Longroyde Junior School
- Northowram Primary School
