Welcome from the Headteacher

chrisWelcome to The Roseland Academy, a high achieving school with a fantastic team of staff.  We nurture, challenge and inspire every child to reach their potential.  We are an aspirational school that provides a broad and balanced curriculum matched to our students’ needs.  We achieve academic success as well as developing students’ emotional and social wellbeing through an exciting and varied school programme. In September 2017 we were graded Ofsted Outstanding in all areas.

The Roseland is a small community-centred school of around 640 students.  Each year we continue to be oversubscribed in every year group.  We are friendly and welcoming and prospective parents are encouraged to visit.  One way is to attend our open evening which takes place in September, or you can arrange a visit any time of the year by contacting the school and making an appointment.  You will be given a tour and be able to visit lessons as they happen.

Our ethos is that students achieve their best when they enjoy their learning.  We plan lessons, events and activities that engage our students, challenge them and encourage their thirst for learning.  We have high aspirations and our staff, parents and students aim high with us.

The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all our students.  We encourage them to follow the EBACC GCSEs that include languages, the Sciences and Humanities.  Our curriculum engages students and offers a wide variety of subjects including Music, Drama, Photography, Media and much more.  We also have a range of vocational courses on offer such as Engineering, Business Studies, Physical Education, ICT and Animal Care on our unique farm.

There is an exciting and inspiring extracurricular programme.  The school runs and develops its own Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. The creative and performing arts have an amazing array of extracurricular events and activities.  Although we are a small school we compete well in many sporting events. There are a range of sports, Science, film and games clubs also on offer.

I hope you enjoy reading and looking at our website and that it gives you an insight into our wonderful school.
