Welcome to Rednock School

“Welcome to the Rednock School website.  I hope that you find the details about the school informative and helpful.

We are a fully comprehensive school where every child matters.  I am passionate about this philosophy; we do not select by ability or income – we want to improve children’s lives so that they are equipped for their next steps in a global society.

Rednock School is an ambitious and aspirational place; every student should achieve their potential whatever their starting point.  Exam outcomes are critical for today’s students to make positive steps in their lives.  In order to deliver the excellent education that every student deserves we provide a supportive and caring environment.  All of our staff are committed to taking care of students’ needs – both academically and pastorally.  In my experience of over 37 years in education, I believe that Rednock provides the best care and attention, second to none.

I am proud of the students, staff and the school.  We want to engage all of our community in this vision of excellence and the desire to achieve it.  I hope that the website will interest you in looking at the school and joining us.  I look forward to meeting you.”

David Alexander, Head Teacher

Wild Flower Planting

As part of the 'Rednock goes green' strategy this year we purchased wild flowers to plant along the swales at the rear of the main building. This inspiration for this activity came from the county ecologist's report in the summer that among many things, identified a corridor that could be used to encourage wildlife. Fortunately, after months of persistent rainfall and just before we closed, we managed to find a dry day to plant all of the wild flowers just as springtime began. The longer term plan is to fill the remaining swales in order to create a corridor for butterflies and other insects.

It has been so rewarding to note the enthusiasm that our students have had whilst out planting the trees and flowers around the school site this term. There is something truly special about learning outdoors and it seems that sometimes in our endeavour to create an indoor environment that delivers excellence in terms of technology for learning, we have forgotten the value and potential of our natural surroundings which are vital to our well-being and very existence.
