Headteacher’s Review of the Year

2009/10 was yet another year when the school’s exam results and other indicators showed improvement. Year 11 produced the best set of results in the school’s history. 5+ A*-C including English and Maths 5+ A*-C 5+ A*-G

68% 88% 100%

The A level results were also excellent with an ALPS score of 2 for A2, 2 for BTEC and 4 for AS. This is a 1-9 data score, with 1/2/3 considered outstanding. 646 children applied for 240 places in Year 7, and the Sixth Form is full with 250 students. Attendance hit an all time high of 94.9%, marred only by the taking of holidays, by a minority of parents in term time. Rainhill High is a genuine family school, and the friendly relationships, mutual support and celebration of success ARE a credit to all involved. Curriculum enrichment continued with more trips and visits, ranging from: New York to Berlin, from Holland to Spain. At lunchtime and after school there are numerous extracurricular activities and sports events, including teams, with our football teams doing extremely well. Our elite athletes, supported by the school, continue to work towards lofty ambitions. For some 2012 and 2016 are a genuine possibility. We have established a unique partnership with Liverpool FC that places some of their younger players at the school. This has been good for our pupils on several levels, a full programme for Arts events with the Dance Show at the Brindley and the Visual Art exhibition being the pinnacle. On top of this is the huge effort made by staff, students and parents to support a full programme of revision classes for all. The Year 11 and 13 Proms are an annual highlight for me, and a well deserved celebration for everyone concerned. All of this despite, the snow closures and the false start Ofsted process, shows that the school is operating at the highest level. All in all it has been a fun- filled and excellent year. Thank you to all our students who contributed to this success. I am and will remain, very proud of all of you. You remain, for life, part of the Rainhill family. Congratulations John Pout

Guest Speaker Mark Featherstone-Witty Mark Featherstone Witty is the Founding Principal and Chief Executive of the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.

He was born in London. Not particularly enjoying his secondary school because of its lack of opportunities in the performing arts, Mark still managed to produce, direct and act in a play. As a result he left school determined to be an actor and involved with theatre. His acting career was not that successful. His last portrayal was a hairdresser in 'Deadly Encounter' which was filmed in the States, where he was studying for a Masters degree. The film was of such quality that his film professor, at the time, warned him not to get involved with any publicity should the film be distributed in Europe. It was that good. In his early professional life Mark was a teacher, publisher, and writer as well as running a television production company (Rainbow Education) which developed a six part television series,‘Whose Town Is It Anyway?’for Channel Four. In the early 1980's, he was inspired by Alan Parker's film 'Fame' to develop a school that would provide performing arts training for a sustained career. With help from many, he created The British Record Trust School (The BRIT School) in Croydon, London. Paul McCartney, when he was writing his Liverpool Oratorio, decided to relive his schooldays by visiting his old school, the Liverpool Institute for Boys. He was dismayed by the derelict and abandoned building. Someone had suggested that Liverpool needed a performing arts school. The former Beatles producer, George Martin, suggested to Paul McCartney that he meet with Mark Featherstone-Witty. It is extremely rare for a Higher Education Institution to start from scratch in the UK. Led by Mark, £20m funding was raised via Liverpool City Challenge, The European Union, Paul McCartney and Grundig. LIPA celebrated its tenth birthday in January 2006 and remains significantly oversubscribed and extremely successful, all under Mark’s leadership. Mark has had a number of books published, one being‘LIPA - The First Ten Years’. He is on the board of the Liverpool Royal Court Theatre Trust to assist in the refurbishment of this magnificent venue. LIPA and Rainhill High School, together with St Helens College, are founding partners of Rainhill Learning Village Trust.
