Our Christian School as a clear vision:
Bishop Rawstorne is a Christian community that delights in seeking wisdom and knowledge, building relationships and character based upon the Word of God, enabling us all to flourish bravely and faithfully.
This based on our foundational biblical verse from the books of James:
“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17
As a Church of England Academy, Bishop Rawstorne holds Christian worship at the core of our everyday life. Our Christian Distinctiveness is directed by our Collective Worship but it runs much deeper than that. We care about human flourishing. Whilst we recognise the diverse backgrounds each member of the Bishop Rawstorne community has, we strive to cultivate an atmosphere in which everyone can experience life in all its fullness.
The Academy Prayer
Heavenly Father, in Your love
You have called us to know You;
Led us to trust You;
And bound our lives with Yours.
Surround us with Your love
And Protect us from evil
That we may bravely and faithfully follow You,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
