Welcome to Rastrick Independent School. For 25 years, Rastrick has been educating, nurturing and caring for children and young adults.

Rastrick is an educational campus set in a beautiful and historical learning environment. Warm and welcoming, it is our philosophy to educate the individual from birth to 16 and beyond with our highly qualified and experienced team of teachers; using assessment and an individual learning programme.

Our high standard of education, academic success and our record in key examination results makes us unique. Currently we have been voted 6th in the top 100 preparatory schools for SATS results by the Sunday Times parent power national survey. Click to read our inspection reports by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

If academic success is your priority, we would expect you will compare the results nationally and locally in terms of academic and exam success. You will look at results for GCSE, 11+ and outstanding SATS results at all key stages. You will find Rastrick succeeds far above the national average and within the locality.

Rastrick is also a Tutorial College for external candidates at all levels and an external examination centre for all Examination Boards. We also offer an International College.

You are most welcome to visit us, by appointment or at any of our Open Days.
