Breaking news…

25th May 2016

Governors at the meeting on Tuesday 24th have approved an exciting plan to redevelop the lower school site into a modern Sixth Form Centre.

The new facilities will include a café, lecture theatre and gym as well as a number of new specialised rooms.  We plan to cater for 400 sixth form students in the future.  Plans will now be submitted to the Local Authority and we hope work would commence sometime in the next academic year.

This fantastic project provides us with the opportunity to educate years 7-11 on one site.

From September 2016 new year 7 and our current year 7 and 8 will move to the upper school site in Approach Road.  Due to our year groups being small we can accommodate all years comfortably on one site until the sixth form moves into their wonderful new building.

This is a very exciting period for Raine’s.

In addition to this development we have a new uniform for the new year 7 starting in September (optional for all other year groups) and a recent OFSTED monitoring visit was very successful.  More details will follow once the final report is published.

Good times lay ahead for Raine’s Foundation school.

Yours sincerely,


Rob Hullett
