Schools Partnership Programme

RNN Group launches School Partnership Programme

22 February 2023

RNN Group has launched a new initiative this week which sees a number of local schools partner with the Group and its colleges to support school leavers from each partner school.

RNN Group has over the years developed sound relationships with schools across South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire to help school leavers decide on their next educational step across our colleges Rotherham College, North Notts College and Dearne Valley College, as well as at our University Centre Rotherham.

The Schools’ Partnership Programme launches with a number of ‘Flagship’ schools across the South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire area who have signed up to this brand new initiative including: Retford Oaks, Rawmarsh Community School, Wickersley School and Sports College, Swinton Academy, Thrybergh Academy and Wingfield Academy.

Partner Schools gain special activities including bespoke Taster Days with funding for transport, VIP Tours, and Golden Ticket invites to our Open Events and much more!

Partner Schools students’ are guaranteed a place at one of our colleges although learners still need to achieve the grades to be accepted onto the course of their choice and go through the usual application process. Offers may be suggested for other courses or programmes if the course chosen is not right for the learner or the grades are not met.

Jason Austin, CEO and Principal, commented, “I am delighted that the RNN Group has launched this brand new Schools Partnership Programme with a number of flagship schools across South Yorkshire and North Notts.

“Schools are vitally important to the RNN Group and to have a Partnership Programme that recognises this is a really positive step in continuing to develop and build these relationships to support school leavers with their future choices.”

All Schools’ Partners feature on our website too; you can find out who are current partners are and see if your school is listed:
