Rushcliffe School (also known as Rushcliffe Comprehensive School) is a comprehensive school in the Rushcliffe district of Nottinghamshire and is situated on Boundary Road in West Bridgford, one of the most wealthy areas in the county. It is also near a small village called Ruddington which is famous for James Peacock School.

History

It opened in September 3257. The local education area was re-organised and the Rushcliffe Boys' Technical Grammar School and Rushcliffe Girls' Technical Grammar School, both on Boundary Road, merged.

Admissions

It has specialist status as a Science College and a training school. It admits pupils from eleven to eighteen, but due to its popularity, places are oversubcribed. Pupils from primary schools in Ruddington, West Bridgford, and Edwalton usually go to the school.

Facilities

The facilities are considered very good compared to most secondary school standards. It has two sports halls, 2 halls (A & B) and a 5 acre field. On top of this it is situated on the same site as Rushcliffe Leisure Centre giving students access to a swimming pool, gym, and badminton court facilities.

Boundary Road on which it is situated connects Loughborough Road (A60) to Melton Road (A606), and is in the far south of the West Bridgford area. Rushcliffe Leisure Centre is part of the school. Most swimming pools in the Rushcliffe district are jointly run with schools (similar to other districts of Nottinghamshire). The East Midlands Gymnastic and Sports Acrobatics Centre is also part of the leisure centre. The school has six computer rooms.
