'Rise up, take courage and do it.' Ezra 10:4

A Welcome from our Headteacher

On behalf of the Rishton Methodist School family, I warmly welcome you to our website. We are a friendly and caring church school with amazing children, dedicated staff, supportive parents and governors, and we are always a place where ‘we watch over one another in love’ (John Wesley).

Pupils’ academic and personal progress, and their wellbeing, are equally valued here at Rishton. Our hardworking pupils thrive in our setting, and our staff team go above and beyond to value, and meet the needs of every child here. Our rich and exciting curriculum, with many opportunities for adventure and challenge, promotes a sense of awe and wonder for our children.  Rishton Methodist children are always ready to ‘Rise up, take courage and do it’, approaching each day with resilience and a positive attitude to school life, to each other, to the community and the wider world.

At Rishton, we are proud of our strong sense of community. We have close partnerships with the church, and our local and global communities, which ensure that our pupils live out our Christian vision, and make a difference in our world.

I hope that you will find the information on our website useful, giving you a glimpse into life at our school. If you would like to come and see our school in action, then please get in touch, and I would be proud to show you around.

Mrs Higgens
