Riverston School successfully delivers a bespoke and engaging curriculum for children of all ability levels.   

We offer a range of activities that complement teaching and learning within the formal curriculum and serve to promote the cultural, physical, social, intellectual and spiritual growth of our children.  We aim to teach children how to grow into healthy, positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with each other while developing knowledge, understanding and skills, so that they achieve their true potential.


Our values are reflected in our School Ethos: ‘Bespoke Learning for Life’ which is at the heart of the design and delivery of our curriculum. We actively ensure that pupils are given bespoke academic experiences, often tailor made to meet individual and different needs. Our distinctive curriculum is designed to ensure that mainstream, gifted and talented as well as pupils with special educational and learning needs are challenged and developed in a way to prepare them for future life in both academic and vocational routes.

"We are absolutely certain and well aware that Riverston would go a thousand of extra miles for our son, as you and your colleagues have always done with so much perseverance and dedication : Dario would have not been able to get any GCSE without you, and this is a fact for which we will be always deeply grateful,."
