All Saints' Roman Catholic High School, a secondary school serving the community of East Lancashire, has made it on to the DfE's second list of 50 schools to benefit from the government's 'School Rebuilding Programme' list.


On 19th July 2021 the government announced the second wave of schools which are to be rebuilt as part of the 10 year rebuilding programme, and two Lancashire schools made it into the top 50 to be - one of which is Rawtenstall's own All Saints' Roman Catholic High School.

All Saints' is a part of the Romero Catholic Academy Trust, having converted in February 2020.


Mr Brian McNally, Headteacher says

"The school first opened as St Ambrose's in 1959, and was expanded with the addition of the Fishwick Block in 1972; the buildings have served our community well and over the years we have worked very hard to maintain them, however time has taken it's toll and we are thrilled by the announcement that our site has made it onto the DfE's priority list for rebuild or refurbishment.

One of the main drivers for All Saints' to academise and to join the Romero CAT was to provide the best opportunities and facilities for our children, and this is another massive step in the right direction. 

Plans are at a very early stage, so I cannot yet share details of what is to come, however I can assure our community that we will put you at the heart of our planning."


Mr Des Callaghan, Trust CEO, says

"After working with the DfE for several months, I am delighted to share the news that All Saints' Roman Catholic High School is one of the schools to be selected as part of the DfE rebuilding schools project."
