New A-Level Course!
The Innovations faculty at Rushcliffe Sixth Form are looking to start a brand new course, for September 2018: A Level Textiles (Art and Design)
This will be a small class taught by experienced teachers, where you will learn all aspects of Textiles and build the foundations for a career in Design. You will be using lots of new technological equipment and producing outstanding pieces of textiles work.
This is a fantastic opportunity to study A Level Textiles in a vibrant and creative environment at a successful Sixth Form.
The Innovations faculty has links with Nottingham Trent University Design Department to support you to pursue a career in the fashion industry and many other areas.
Why not see if it is the right course for you?
...and ask as many questions as you want!

Healthy Eating Week winners showcase their products
The students made some fantastic products and it was a tough task for the food teachers to narrow down to a range of recipes which would be suitable to be sold in EATZ. Mr Simms and Mrs Naylor in the canteen then chose 5 recipes which they thought would work well and on 5th October 2017 these products were made and sold in EATZ as part of the Rushcliffe menu.
This was a fantastic opportunity for students to see their products being made in a large quantity and enjoyed by our school community. A huge congratulations to the following students for an amazing effort and wonderful products.
Lauren Cruddas – 8J – Breakfast Bar
Millie Weighill – 8H – Fruit yoghurt and Mango Smoothie
Annie Bryan – 8D – Tuna Burger on a wholemeal bread roll
Oliver Jenkinson - 8E - Chicken Italia
Noah Waters – 8F - Mixed Berry Fruit Flan
