Welcome to Rush Common School

We pride ourselves on pupils feeling happy and safe in our school at all times, and to achieve this we provide a wonderful learning environment and have a welcoming and talented team of staff. Pupils love coming to our school and this is always reflected in parent surveys, which demonstrate overwhelming support for the school. Whilst the children’s happiness, well-being and safety will always remain our priority, we are also hugely ambitious for our pupils and set ourselves high standards for the quality of education we provide.  

We believe in balancing pupils’ academic achievement with their all-round personal development, and as such we have developed a broad, creative and exciting curriculum that builds important skills over time and enriches the lives of our pupils. We treat children as individuals and look to nurture their talents and interests as they progress through our school, so they can truly ‘Dream, Aspire and Succeed’. This website will give you a taste of what we can offer, but we would love to show you around our fantastic school; please contact the school office and a visit can be arranged.

Mr Kristen Fawcett
