Head Teacher’s Welcome

Lee Barber
Head Teacher

At the centre of our culture are two key qualities – Excellence and Kindness. We endeavour to nurture caring, trusting and positive relationships between students, staff, parents and carers, and we make a promise that every pupil will leave here as a resilient, independent and happy individual.

We are clear at Rudheath Senior about our priorities. Firstly, students should be safe and happy. Secondly, the school should offer a wide range of learning activities and opportunities in and out of the classroom. Thirdly, all students are encouraged and supported to achieve their full potential whatever their abilities. Only if the first two are promoted can this third and most important aim be fully realised.

With a brand new building and a committed team of staff, Rudheath is in an exciting new phase. We are equally ambitious as we grow the school in the coming years and those students joining us in future years will be at the centre of that journey. We recognise that everyone has a variety of strengths and our team are here to support you throughout the next five years. We have high expectations for all of our students and our aim is provide the best possible school experience.

We have a close partnership with our sister schools in the North West Academies Trust (NWAT). This partnership has a positive impact on all aspects of school life at Rudheath Senior and I believe it will accelerate every aspect of our school improvement.

As part of the NWAT, we believe that all children deserve a choice of outstanding educational provision. The Trust is focused on raising standards, narrowing the gap and ensuring that all children at our schools have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Our ethos is centred around inclusivity and opportunity. We want to ensure that every one of our students leave us equipped with the necessary skills, qualifications and mindset to take the next steps in leading a deeply rewarding life. Whilst academic achievements are an important part of life at Rudheath Senior, learners enjoy a diverse range of additional opportunities. A hugely popular extracurricular sport programme, music and drama, complement a wide range of trips and visits. Opportunities for student leadership emphasise the value of taking part as a member of the school community. We make no apology for placing a high priority on excellent behaviour, attendance and the highest possible standards as an expected norm. We care about our learners’ development and achievements and endeavour to provide first class support and further opportunities for our learners to thrive.
