Rainford High has been a hive of activity this week as four new classrooms were lifted into the school grounds by an 80m crane.
The classrooms will form a new geography block, which will allow the school’s SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) Everyone Succeeds Centre to expand into a full suite of classrooms in the main school building.
The expansion secures Rainford High’s future commitment to being a centre of excellence for inclusion by its wide-ranging support for students with identified needs and vulnerabilities.
Ian Young, principal of Rainford High said: “The lifting of the classrooms was quite the spectacle and we watched with joy as the new facilities took shape before our eyes. The geography block will be ready for the new academic year in September.
“After another difficult year, this once again shows our commitment to providing the best facilities for students and staff and the ongoing improvement in all aspects of school life.”
Ian added: “On behalf of all the staff here, we wish everyone a safe and happy summer.”
Rainford High is an 11-18 school with just over 1600 students who achieve good exam results at both the end of Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. The school has a strong ethos of ‘Everyone Matters, Everyone Helps and Everyone Succeeds’, which the staff and pupils continually work to make this the day-to-day focus of the school.
