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

Music tour to Cantabria

In July 2018 the Rednock School orchestra (38 students and 5 teachers) embarked on a music trip to Cantabria, Spain. We were there for a total of 5 days, 2 of which we were traveling on our luxury coach. On the first day we arrived at a traditional Spanish hotel called Los Hidalgos.
As soon as we entered, all our rooms were ready to go. The hotel itself, was well organised with friendly staff. The hotel was situated in a touristic town which was a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. In front the hotel there was a large park. Some of the rooms had the view to park which was really nice. Every day we had dinner and breakfast at the hotel. The meals at the hotel pleased majority of the students and the food was very pleasant. Especially the Meatballs and chips!
On the first day we started off by having breakfast at the hotel and after that we went to the Fuento de cable car where we admired the beautiful views of the Picos de Europa and had lunch at the café at the top. This cable car had a gorgeous view and raised 1094m to 1847m. This for some was scary but enjoyable. Later that day we had a concert in a place called Plaza de la Concha.
On our second day we went to the Parque Natural Cabarceno where we went on another cable car but the view was completely different. We went around the park and below us we could see all of the different species which looked spectacular from above especially because there was such a large variety of animals. The park was set up to protect and breed endangered species. Throughout the day we had the opportunity to wander around in small groups and see the animals close up.
After the natural park, we went to a small beach near our concert location where we all had great fun playing rounders. Later that day we had a concert in Plaza de la Concha.
On our last day, in the morning, we visited the Altamira Caves museum where we saw 14,000 year-old cave paintings and discovered the techniques used to create this rock art.

After this we were given free time in the local town where we had our lunch and after we went to a café called Concana where we ate ‘chocolate con churros’. Our final concert was in Plaza del Ayuntamiento in the local town.

Following the concert we returned to our hotel to pack and have our final meal before returning home on our coach. Despite the length of the journey the time passed quickly as we played games, sang, watched films.

A great trip was had by all and we can’t wait till 2020 when we go to Tuscany in Italy. Will you be with us?

Update Year 7 SMHW.
We are in the process of supporting the students through the login process. This will be facilitated in their ICT lessons and we aim to have all students up and running by the end of the month. Parent login information will follow when we are confident that the students have logged in. In the interim all year 7 students have a planner to record important notes, notices and homework. Staff will plan lessons accordingly to allow them to record information. The attached information can be used to support the students logging in at home.
