Rayner Stephens get the green light for state-of-the-art facilities!

14 December 2022

Rayner Stephens are so excited to have the green light for our state of the art new facilities, coming in September 2023. The investment will give students access to industry standard drama studio and music rooms alongside a modern airy art studio.

Stamford Park Trust, in collaboration with Tameside Council, is investing over £1.5 million to ensure students at Rayner Stephens have access the best facilities, to inspire their love of learning and interests outside of the curriculum.

The improvements are just one in the programme of improvements the school has seen since joining Stamford Park Trust in 2021, which are already having a significant and positive impact on the lives of our students.

This year, GCSE and equivalent qualifications were the best in the school’s history. The investments we’re making across our staff and facilities show our clear focus on our vision of ‘Excellence and Ambition for all.’

It is an exciting time to join Rayner Stephens High School. Progress is happening across the whole school with a clear focus on positive praise and recognition, excellent behaviour for learning, investment in facilities, engaging teaching and an extensive and exciting enrichment and aspiration offers for students.

Rayner Stephens joined Stamford Park Trust, a multi-academy Trust led by Ashton Sixth Form College, in January 2021.

Stamford Park Trust gives us the opportunity to do things differently, to develop and form collaborative approaches to teaching and learning to provide an outstanding quality of education to all students in the Trust. 

The new Creative Arts Centre will be ready for use in 2023 and will provide the perfect spaces and opportunities for students to develop their talents and interests in the creative arts.
