News & Calendar

Welcome to the section of our website that gives you the latest information about all that is happening at Rivington and Blackrod High School.  From Rivi's Got Talent' to community performances by our choir we have many students who look to us to help to develop their individual talents.  A host of activities are available both through the curriculum and extra-curricular activity, to develop multi-sensory and educational experiences including workshops, charity events and live broadcasts in Rivi Studios. The school hosts extensive holiday and youth activities.  We have championed these developments because we see education as a lifelong and year round activity, with all partners in the wider community acting as role models.  All activities reinforce key skills in literacy, numeracy, citizenship, teamwork, communication and cooperation.

We have helped many students to develop their talents and build upon their experience in school, many of whom have then continued onto successful careers in their chosen specialism.

We have an exceptional sporting programme with students participating in competitions at both regional and national level.  The school has close links with the Lawn Tennis Association and plays host to some of the best up and coming tennis players in the country in partnership with Bolton Arena International High Performance Centre.

Students have the opportunity to attend residential visits across the UK, Europe, the USA and beyond, which support academic achievement and develop students' citizenship skills.  Good work and motivation is celebrated through a variety of ways including awards and trips.

We hope that you find the information that you need here, but should you require any further information do not hesitate to contact us on 01204 333266.
