Facilities

Rickmansworth School was built in the early 1950’s and was then known as Rickmansworth Grammar for some 500 students, the school has grown over the last 60 years providing spaces for some 1270 students with a variety of older and modern buildings spread over a 20+ acre site. Rickmansworth School has extensive playing fields along with a state of the art Sports Centre and all weather multi use games area.

Rickmansworth School’s 25m x 7.5m Swimming Pool was totally refurbished and has become a hub for community swimming, the facility is used daily by the school’s students and every evening and weekend by clubs.

The school has seen extensive refurbishment works in a number of areas since 2014 including a Dining Hall extension, a Food Cube run by the school’s catering contractor Pabulum and a brand new cycle compound for some 80 bicycles encouraging students and staff to cycle to school.

During the Summer of 2016 the school refurbished the Science Block to create an additional two laboratories and one additional ICT suite and the Summer of 2017 has seen the Music Block completely refurbished creating more teaching and practice rooms along with Music Technology and recording studios.

Future Plans:

We are now entering a period of Expansion which will provide an extensive Sixth Form Centre, state of the art English, Film and Media department, learning step lecture area and a fantastic Drama facility, we will also see the Caretaker’s House demolished at the front of the site to provide space for the new Student/Visitor Reception to welcome you to the school.

As part of the Expansion many departments will move around the school which will create a brand new Library and Careers Centre and additional classrooms for Religious Studies and Humanities.

Rickmansworth School are keen to develop outside spaces to create safe and dry areas for students to eat and socialise and this is in the forefront of our minds going forwards.

Rickmansworth School is entering an exciting phase and we invite you to share in our experience.
