Rudheath Senior Academy is an 11-16 secondary school providing a broad and balanced education to the communities of Rudheath, Lostock Gralam, Wincham, Northwich and Winsford.

We are a community-focused school, with pupils, parents and staff developing strong relationships over the course of five years. Our large school campus allows us to offer a wide range of subjects and opportunities beyond the classroom.

At the centre of our culture are two key values – Excellence and Kindness. Throughout all aspects of school life, we are proud of the high standards our children hold, and the personal development they make between Year 7 and Year 11. We are equally proud of the way we help our young people grow into responsible and respectful adults. Through Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education, Drama, Dance, Music, P.E., a caring and supportive pastoral system and a wealth of clubs and activities, we seek to fulfil our overarching Trust ethos:

“Opening Children’s Eyes to the Wonderful World of Possibilities“
