Rishworth School and FC Halifax Town are delighted to announce a renewed partnership.

For the last 300 years, Rishworth School has occupied magnificent buildings in 140 acres in the Ryburn Valley. An independent boarding and day school, accepting children from 3 to 18 years. Small class sizes and excellent teaching result in brilliant academic achievements, with over 76% of A-level grades achieved at A* to B.

Lydia Horbury – Director of External Relations at Rishworth School said:  “We are proud of our ongoing working partnership with FC Halifax Town and look forward to continuing the great work we do together in both raising the profile of Halifax and providing fantastic opportunities for our students”.

“There is a natural synergy between our two organisations and this partnership supports the promotion of our schools culture of sporting excellence – we have just launched a brand new football academy called RIFA (Rishworth International Football Academy).

FC Halifax Town’s Commercial Director, John Williams commented “I am delighted to secure a renewed partnership with Rishworth School for a further 12 months. To echo what Lydia has said there is a synergy between us both in supporting & promoting not just in sport but giving the students experience of showcasing their talents at the stadium on match days. Massive thanks to all at Rishworth School for their continued support”.
