About Us

Raine's is an inner city, voluntary aided, Church of England, 11-19 secondary school. The school is the latest representation of a school originally founded in 1719 by Henry Raine for the education of fifty boys and fifty girls. Throughout its long history the school has taken pride in its service to the local community, as we aim to "Achieve Excellence by Unlocking Potential".

Today Raine's is a thriving multi-cultural school, which still adheres to traditional values of hard work, good conduct, loyalty and high standards of dress and appearance. The school encourages both staff and students to challenge their own personal best in all areas of endeavour: academically, socially and spiritually. To help us achieve this the school is committed to an extensive range of activities beyond the formal curriculum, which enable our students to grow and develop in many ways.

SEND

Welcome to our SEND pages. We hope you will enjoy reading about the variety of ways in which Raines Foundation is able to support students to reach their full potential.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Ms Kate Huxley
Our Special Educational Needs Administrator – Mrs Helen Simmons

At Raine’s Foundation Church Of England School we welcome everybody into our community. We believe every child should be provided with the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential.

Every student at Raine’s Foundation has the opportunity to follow all National Curriculum subjects as well as following an appropriate curriculum pathway.

We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students. This may include after school interventions, short-term intervention learning programmes off site provision, home-school intervention learning programmes or other learning interventions developed on an individual needs basis.

Behaviour for Learning

Achieve Excellence by Unlocking Potential

At Raine’s Foundation School we recognise that an ethos of encouragement is central to the promotion of positive behaviour. We aim to achieve this by acknowledging positive student behaviour, participation and contribution through our Positive Conduct System. We approach this in a very systematic and fair way to ensure that every child is acknowledged for their achievements. SIMS referrals for both behaviour (negative points) and achievement (positive points) translate into positive conduct points for our students.

Exam Results KS4 & 5

KS4

We are pleased with the performance of our Year 11 students. The results show a substantial improvement on last year. GCSE Maths passes increasing by 23% and the overall English and Maths increasing by 18%.

 

Despite the changes to the grading system in English and Maths a number of students achieved the highest levels. Some of our top performing students were Jada Baron, Khadijah Bint Ahad, Anisa Rahman and Guste Babicevaite who achieved 26 A*/A grades between them.

 

This shows what can be achieved through hard work and determination. We will be working hard with the new Year 11 students to ensure they do even better next year.

 

Well done to all staff and students.

 

KS5

Top grades (A*-C) this year are at 74% ensuring that more of our students than ever are able to go to the university of their choice. This coupled with outstanding vocational results which has seen 64% of entries at Distinction or Distinction* grades means that Raine’s Sixth Form has indeed proved that it is an excellent Sixth form centre for pupils of all backgrounds to make great progress and achieve their best.

 

We would like to congratulate all our students for their hard work and their well-deserved results and look forward to hearing about their future successes.

Enrichment

Enrichment at Raine's Foundation School

Enrichment is a fundamental element in terms of learning and teaching at Raine’s Foundation School. Importantly, it also forms the foundation of student experience beyond the classroom. We recognise the importance of offering a meaningful, exciting and innovative enrichment programme; which both motivates and promotes independence and resilience in our young people. We believe our enrichment opportunities allow our students to appreciate and respect other people; both on a local and global level. We aim to create a platform for students to develop and enhance their skills and attributes for the future.
