Rishworth School

Rishworth is a thriving independent, co-educational, boarding and day school for children from age 3 to 18.

“At Rishworth we understand that life outside of the classroom is just as significant as the world within it.”

Rishworth School warmly welcomes Forces, expat and international students to join a forward thinking and innovative UK boarding school that retains traditional values.


For the last 300 years, Rishworth School has occupied magnificent buildings in 140 acres of Yorkshire countryside, yet we are half an hour from the amenities of Manchester giving us the best of both worlds. Our boarding houses are cosy and family-centred, secure havens with pastoral care that is second to none. The quality boarding accommodation includes comfortable study-bedrooms and well-appointed common rooms. The school has excellent facilities including a chapel, sports hall, gym, swimming pool and performing arts centre.

A wide range of GCSE and A Level options provide students with opportunities to focus on their strengths and interests. This summer 78% of A-level grades achieved were  A*/B. This is supplemented by a full and diverse selection of over 90 enrichment and extension activities. From our renowned Ford Rugby Academy through to our Medical Society there’s something to simulate, entertain or light that creative spark; Duke of Edinburgh Award, F1 remote control, jazz band, dry slope skiing, photography club, sports teams and more. 


At Rishworth we understand that life outside of the classroom is just as significant as the world within it.
