The Rawlett School is a secondary school with academy status located on the outskirts of Tamworth, a market town in Staffordshire, England. It was previously known as Rawlett Community Sports College and, before that, as Rawlett High School. The school is sponsored by the Academies Enterprise Trust. Rawlett educates around 1,250 students aged 11–16. The headteacher is Tim Bassett. The catchment includes Tamworth, Fazeley, Mile Oak, Elford, Hopwas, Riverside, Coton Green and Gillway.


The school operates the Rawlett IT Academy, which offers Microsoft Office 2003 Specialist courses and exams. It has many sports facilities such as a four-court sports hall, sprung wooden gymnasium, dance studio, meeting rooms, changing rooms, three floodlit county standard tennis courts, floodlit county standard netball court, floodlit synthetic pitch and playing fields. In 2012, the two music rooms were converted to a gymnasium which is free to students during school time and up to 4:30pm when the general public can pay to use it.

Connexions Card launch[edit]

The Education secretary Estelle Morris chose Rawlett to launch the Connexions Card, on 14 June 2002. The card was a national initiative to encourage 16- to 19-year-olds to continue in education and training.[2]
