Welcome to our outstanding Cotswold School

The Rissington School is a friendly, vibrant school set in the picturesque Cotswold villages of Great Rissington  and Upper Rissington. We cater for children from 4 to 11 years of age and currently have 193 children on roll, who are taught in either the Victorian building  in Great Rissington or the newly completed building in the developing area of Upper Rissington, Our before and after school provision, "RASCAL"  offers childcare to support our families. "Little RASCAL", a provision for pre-school learners, which welcomes youngsters from the term that they reach their third birthday, is on the Upper Rissington site.


At The Rissington  School we make school a very happy experience. We are a school where there are expectations of excellence, where individuals are valued, achievements celebrated and where children are happy and safe. We have a tremendously energetic and creative staff who are all committed to providing a wonderful primary school education for all of our children. We pride ourselves on the high academic standards that our children consistently achieve.

Our school is held in the highest esteem by pupils, staff, parents, governors and the community. 

Here is what some of our pupils think of our school:   


"The children and teachers are kind"

"School gives us a good education.  Sometimes the work can be challenging and sometimes it can be fun''

"You are well looked after in the playground."

"The school grounds and the special place are great."

"We like having responsibility." 


In 2011 we were given Ofstedā€™s highest possible grade of "Outstanding" and our aim is to continue to develop the school, embracing new ideas, methods and technology, in order to continue to give our pupils the best experience we can. Our Ofsted   report  and  our  SATS  results  speak  for  themselves,  but  the best way to get an idea of life at The Rissington School is to come and see us in action!
