Hi my name is Joseph Armitage and I have the privilege of being appointed as Head Boy this year. Throughout my time at Bishop Rawstorne and even before, I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the school community, even more so in these past four years. My favourite subjects are Art and Geography as I love being creative with my work and learning about how the world around me works. This amazing school has helped me grow not only academically but also as a person. Outside of school I enjoy going to my local explorer group of which I have been with for nine years and walking my dog along the lake. If you ever need any help in school I am always here to talk and if you have any questions please just let me know and I'll be happy to help.
Hi, my name is Isabelle Morley, and I am honoured to be Head Girl at Bishop Rawstorne. During my time in school, I have made new friends and developed many skills. At school, I am a member of our Student Voice team, which makes school a more comfortable place for all students. My favourite subjects at school include art, history, and maths. To get the most out of high school, I would advise you to get involved in as many things as possible like clubs and teams to explore hidden interests and make new friends. As Head Girl, I aim to create a welcoming environment within school and improve our Christian identity. I am around school if you need someone to talk to and if you have any questions please just ask.
Senior Prefects 2023-2024
Hi. I'm Bea and I'm pleased to be one of this year's senior prefects. A bit about me is that I enjoy science and philosophy as these have really allowed me to express my beliefs. Outside of school, I also enjoy volunteering on a local livery yard. In school, I wish to encourage all students to be kinder to each other, to help make school a more welcoming place for all. I hope to be able to allow all students to be able to share their beliefs in a respectful and receptive manner.
Hi, my name is Freya, and I am one of the Senior Prefects for this year at Bishop Rawstorne. My favourite subject is science as I enjoy learning how the world works and problem solving. I also love music and art as they allow me to express myself. Since I have joined Bishop Rawstorne I have been given lots of opportunities to grow as a person and get involved in some of the many after school activities there are. As a senior prefect I would like to help all students feel welcome and included in the school community, as well as being a role model to other members of the school. One piece of advice that I learnt is to just be yourself and if you have any problems or questions, feel free to come and talk to me if you need anything.
Hi, my name is Evie, and I am a Senior Prefect at Bishop Rawstorne. I would describe myself as confident and enthusiastic, and throughout school I have been given many opportunities to demonstrate this, one of these being a Year 10 Mentor to a Year 7 tutor group. As a Senior Prefect, I have a duty to set an example for the younger students as well as give advice to help improve our school environment in order to make it a more comfortable space for everyone to learn. One of my aims as a senior prefect is to encourage the new Year 7's to feel more confident when it comes to making new friends and expanding their learning and make them feel more welcome within our school community. In school I particularly enjoy drama as it allows you to express yourself in a more creative way than you could in other subjects, and this is extremely important as it gives you an opportunity to be yourself within school.

Student Mentors 2023/2024
Below are our current Year 10 student mentors. Each student mentor is allocated to a Year 7 tutor group to help guide and assist the tutor group students in their first year at Bishop Rawstorne.
My name is Georgia Wood and I am a mentor for 7A. I went to Our Lady and all Saints Primary School. My favourite subject at school is English as I really enjoy reading different pieces of literature and understanding an author’s intentions when writing a poem or play. When I started high school I remember being extremely nervous as I was the only person from my primary school who came to Bishops. However, I quickly realised that high school was not as scary as I thought it might be, and I immediately felt welcomed and at home. My top tip for starting school would be to try your hardest in every subject, but also enjoy your time here!
My name is Freddie McDonald, and I am a mentor for 7A. The primary school I attended was Trinity and St Michael’s. My favourite subject at school is PE because I find it very interesting and enjoyable. When I started school the first thing I worried about was trying to find where my next class would be and getting there on time, but I quickly found my way around. My top tip is to not worry about making friends at school because you are all in the same boat and are all worrying about the same things!
My name is Emily Hadfield and I am a mentor for 7B. I used to go to Bretherton Endowed C of E Primary School. My favourite subject at school is maths because I find numbers incredibly fascinating. I am very sporty and love to stay active! My top tip for starting high school is don't panic and talk to a teacher or older student if you need help with anything or are worried about something.
Hi, my names Addison Turner and I am a mentor here at Bishop Rawstorne.

My name is Jenna Harding and I am one of the mentors for 7C. I used to attend Trinity and St. Michael’s Primary School. My favourite subject would have to be Geography as it gives you an opportunity to learn about other cultures and societies experienced by other people living around the world. When I first started high school, I was worried about making friends and fitting in; don’t be! My top tip would be not to panic as everyone is in the same situation!
My name is Will Caunce and I am a mentor for 7C. I used to go to Mawdesley St Peter’s C of E Primary School. My favourite subject is PE, this is because of the fresh air and also because I enjoy playing a variety of sports. Before I came to this school I was most worried about having to do lots of homework. However, I soon realised the homework was slowly introduced and you soon get into a comfortable routine. My top tip for joining high school would be to try and join an after school activity as that way you will meet new people and learn new skills.
Hi, my name is Chloe McManus and I am a mentor for 7H. I used to go to SS Peter and Paul’s Catholic Primary School. My favourite subject is PE because I love doing sports with my friends and representing school at lots of competitions. Although I was excited about starting high school, I was worried about making new friends and how big the school was compared to my primary school, but you quickly get used to it! My biggest tips for starting high school are to be yourself and be kind.
Hi! My name is Sam Christie and I am a mentor for 7H. I used to go to Bretherton Endowed C of E Primary School. My favourite subjects include History, Drama and P.E. and I chose these for my GCSE options. Outside of school I enjoy playing football and going to athletics training. I support Preston North End and enjoy going to watch them (most of the time!). Although I was excited about starting high school, I remember worrying a bit about how much homework I would get, but it was fine! My top tips are to be organised, work hard and get involved in as many different activities as you can. I am always happy to answer any of your questions and the mentors are there for you if you want to talk to someone.

As a mentor at Bishop Rawstorne I hope to make everyone feel welcome in our community and help you make the most of high school.
My name is Dylan Wilson and I am a mentor for 7M. I used to go to Trinity & St Michael’s C of E Primary School. I enjoy all subjects but I really like history because I find it fascinating to learn all about the past and about diverse cultures, societies and historical figures. I was very excited about starting high school, however I was worried about getting lost in such a new environment, but you quickly find your way round! My top tip for starting high school is to make sure you have a good schedule with homework, as it will be important throughout the entire 5 years you will be here. Don’t do it all the night before it’s due!
My name is Danielle Pendlebury, and I am a mentor for 7X. I went to Mawdesley St Peter’s C of E Primary School. My favourite subject at school is history because not only is the topic fascinating, but the teachers are funny as well! My top tip when you start is to join clubs and sports teams as you then meet a bunch of new people who you might never have made friends with otherwise.
Hi, my name is Sam Boucher and I am going to be one of the mentors for 7X. I used to go to Bretherton Endowed Primary School. My favourite subjects are English and Drama, as you get to unleash your creativity and choose from lots of different styles of work. When I started Bishops I was most worried about making friends, but it was a lot easier than I thought because everyone was doing the exactly the same as me. My top tips would be to stay motivated, keep focused and engaged in your work and get the best out of your time here!
Student Voice Team
Student voice is group of dedicated students from across all year groups, that have a keen interest in the quality of school life and serves as the students' representative body that helps to share students’ ideas and concerns. Along with this the student voice team have a drive to promote student wellbeing, support and assist in school affairs. They also help to form a clear dialogue between staff and students and are involved in the interview process for appointments and can help shape improvements in facilities, policies and decision-making processes contributing hugely to the future direction of the school. The student voice team meet on regular occasion to discuss suggestions or concerns that have been raised; through the student suggestions box, students voice or simply an idea that they wish to discuss.
Below is just a snap shot of some of the work that the student voice team have planned:
- Student concern box (available to all student to pop in a suggestion or a concern).
- Pop up stationary shop.
- Departmental student voice (a range of students across the year groups complete a student voice survey or questionnaire to keep Heads of Department up to date with students’ thoughts on the area and maybe develop ideas from this.)
- Each half term meets with one or two members of a form group year 7-9-11 to chat about school life. Feed back to the group.
- Develop book swaps in every department across the school.
- Being involved in the interview process of new members of staff.
- Random acts of kindness (free ginger bread for a friend at Christmas).
- Being a presence at Year 11 prom to take photos.
We have more ideas and are always on the lookout for new members! For further information about the student voice please speak to Mr Tye.
