“Pupils say that they enjoy their learning because teachers make their lessons fun…. Pupils are terrific advocates for their school, enthusing about a whole host of different aspects.”
“Pupils are attentive in lessons and show a high degree of independence and self-motivation.”

As part of Abingdon Learning Trust, Rush Common School is an equal opportunities employer that recognises the terms and conditions of maintained schools, including maternity benefits and continuous service.
