Secondary School classes

At The Rise School, our classes are named after trees. Trees symbolically represent our school values: they stand tall and proud, they are resilient during stormy weather, over time they grow upwards and in strength.

In 2019-2020 we have nine secondary classes:

Year 7 – Juniper

Year 7 – Larch

Year 8 – Maple

Year 8 – Elm

Year 9 – Cypress

Year 9 – Dragon Tree

Year 10 – Pear Tree 

Year 10 – Sorrel

Year 11 – Guelder-Rose 

We follow a “typical” Secondary model with pupils moving around the building to have lessons delivered by subject specialists. Their class teacher fulfils a form teacher function, they meet four times per day in their designated form room at:




2:50pm -3:00pm
