Welcome to the Rushmoor School website

Investing in the future

 

In September 2013 Rushmoor and St Andrew’s Schools formed an alliance.  They now work under the guidance of one Governing Body under the leadership of one Principal.  We have purchased a 40 acre site and are now actively planning for our formal merger and move to a modern, purpose-built educational setting.

 

We are very pleased to be investing in the future.   Our new site, due to open in the academic year 2021/22, will provide classrooms offering stunning views across the Ouse Valley.   The new facilities will help to ensure our pupils thrive in the STEM subjects and the countryside location will be the perfect setting for a Forest School and outside amphitheatre. 

 

Our reputation for providing outstanding sports provision for all abilities means we will make good use of the additional space to provide enviable sporting opportunities.  We will also continue to invest strongly in performing arts and the creative design arts to ensure these important subjects are accessible for all our pupils.   

 

Planning the new site is an exciting opportunity to build on our strong ethos.  With 230 years of providing excellent education and pastoral support across both schools, we know the importance of meeting each child’s individual needs.  The formal merger and move to the new site will ensure we can continue to meet those needs long into the future.

 

The plans and our new branding will be on display at our next Open Morning on Saturday 7th March 2020, 10.00 am - 12.00 midday.

 

We hope you find this website useful and of interest in finding the right educational setting for your son or daughter. It can be no substitute, however, for a personal visit to the school, giving an insight into school life and the unique ethos of Rushmoor. Please contact the Admissions Secretary to arrange a personal tour with the Principal. 

 

We appreciate the importance you attach to selecting the best independent school for your son or daughter; childhood is something which can be experienced only once. With this in mind, and the belief that children learn best when they feel happy and secure, we aim to develop in our pupils a lifelong interest in learning - one which encompasses the full range of intellectual, cultural, artistic and sporting achievements of our society.

   

In line with Charity Commission requirements we offer bursaries and scholarships at both Rushmoor and St Andrews. New applications are welcome at both schools for the next academic year. Bursaries are means-tested whilst scholarships are awarded for sports/arts/academic.

In the last year, there have been a number of significant purchases, most recent being the mini bus lite and junior playground.
