For more information email: info@riseeducation.org.uk

Inspected on the 29th of April 2015, we were awarded GOOD in every area.

The Inspector made the following observations:

“Students’ personal development is promoted well and, as a result, they appreciate that people’s beliefs and cultures differ. They are well prepared for life in modern Britain

“Students are well motivated and go on to education or training when they leave”

“The school places a high priority on promoting fairness, tolerance and mutual respect so that all students have an equal opportunity to learn and improve. Discrimination of any kind is not tolerated. Personal development and citizenship sessions help students to overcome their feelings of frustration and failure. These, together with a range of interesting activities, help students to gain an understanding of democracy, the rule of law and an appreciation of British vales. In this way, they are well prepared for life in modern Britain”
