About Us

New Rickstones Academy is a co-educational 11-19 comprehensive independent Academy. There are approximately 130 staff, with almost 67 of those being teachers.

The Academy has modern, state of the art buildings which were opened in 2012, offering a first class learning and working environment to students and staff alike. A new 2 storey building will be added to the facilities ready for September 2022 in order to cater for our rapidly increasing popularity and student numbers. This success is also evident in our increasing Published Admission number, up to 240 from 180 as of September 2022 for the new Year 7 cohort.
