We've Won Library of The Year!
We are a close-knit, welcoming and supportive learning community, with one simple aim: to ensure that everyone achieves at the highest possible level. Visit us and you will soon feel the team spirit which is making Rushden one of the most improved schools in the country.
We set our targets high and expect that everyone involved in our partnership - staff, students, parents and carers, governors and the wider community - will insist on maintaining the highest expectations.
The opportunities we offer our learners are broad and varied. As a specialist college for Maths and Computing, there is an emphasis on developing appropriate skills for adult life which underpin the whole curriculum, but we still teach the full range of national curriculum subjects at all levels. We also ensure that our students are well prepared for the world of work through a range of vocational courses. some of which are run on a partnership basis within East Northamptonshire. Our new vocational centre provides facilities for Hair and Beauty and Construction which are second to none!
At Rushden we never forget that our most valuable asset is our students, and that our duty is to strive constantly to give them the best, they deserve it. A quick glimpse at our exam results will show you how well our students achieve academically. They are also actively involved, through the Student Council and student leadership programme, in the development and ongoing improvement of our school.
This website and our prospectus give some basic information about The Rushden Community College, but the best way to find out what makes us tick is to come and see for yourself.
The staff and students here are justifiably proud of their school and their achievements. I am very proud to lead such a successful team.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
