Following instructions from the government, the school site will be closed to pupils (apart from children of key workers) from the end of the day on Friday 20 March with no indication given of when that situation will change.

The Rise Centenary

The Rise Displays

The Rise 100 celebration

We were delighted to be joined by Old Peterites from near and far, parents, current and former staff and pupils of The Rise on Sunday 13 May to celebrate the centenary of the House. 

In wonderful sunshine, guests enjoyed canapes and drinks on the lawn, tours of the house and historic displays from the archives and numerous memories and reminiscences kindly submitted by The Rise community, which were enjoyed by all. 

The occasion was marked with the planting of 'The Rise Rose' by our oldest Risite in attendance, Ian Warrington (1945-50) and our youngest, Monica. The Rise cake, in the shape of the House was cut by Charlotte, who celebrated her birthday on the same day. 

Thank you to all who attended.
