Welcome to our virtual tour; we hope that you find it useful. Redborne is a very successful, oversubscribed Upper School of over 1,600 students, 450 of whom are in the Sixth Form. Over 80% of our Sixth Form go onto university and 14 have gone to Oxbridge in the last 3 years.
We were graded "good" in our Ofsted inspection in November 2017, with "outstanding" features and many positive comments being made by the inspection team.
In April, 2011 we were granted Academy status by the government and as such we are now an independent but state funded school.
We are proud of our academic record, our broad and balanced curriculum, our community links and our excellent pastoral system. Find out more about us by clicking on the other links.
Redborne Upper School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
