Schools within The Roseland Multi-Academy Trust work together on a wide range of developmental projects which innovate, develop and improve standards and opportunities for students of all three schools.
As of 2016, The Roseland Academy is the highest performing state school in Cornwall, and one of the leading schools in the South West. 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.
GCSE exams are officially over and our Year 11 students marked the occasion with a traditional Leavers’ Assembly where there were a number of awards which honoured students for achievements in various areas, music performances and a few heartfelt speeches for their last day at school.
Students were commended for their hard work throughout their time at The Roseland and reflected on their time here with photos all the way from their first year.
Mrs Atkins-Gammons, Learning Leader for Year 11, prepared a video which included proud farewell messages from staff as they wanted the opportunity to say a huge well done for how hard they have worked throughout their years at The Roseland Academy and how maturely they have conducted themselves through the exam season.
On Tuesday 4 June, Year 9 students and their families enjoyed the opening ceremony and private view of this year’s Combined Truro Schools Art Exhibition at Truro Cathedral.
This collaborative exhibition featured artwork by five secondary schools in the Truro area, and The Roseland Year 9 students have been working towards this event within timetabled art lessons.
A number of specialist art workshops have also taken place during the spring and summer terms, leading to a stunning exhibition of printmaking, photography and sculpture which looked fantastic in the atmospheric setting of the cathedral. This successful project is now in its fifteenth year and the title for 2018/19 was ‘Our World, Our Planet' - with artwork inspired by the environmental theme.
Selected students from participating schools also collaborated on an exciting musical performance for the opening night of the exhibition, taking part in a music composition workshop and performance at the cathedral, led by musical director and composer Matt Douglas.
The fifteen musicians included singers, string and brass players, who worked with Matt to create and perform an original piece of music in just one day, inspired by the same environmental theme.
They gave an impressive performance, with voices and instruments exploiting the acoustics of the cathedral to great effect, and involving recycled plastic bottles and drums as additional percussion.
The art exhibition remained open to the public for two weeks and was very well received by the many visitors to the cathedral.
Comments in the visitor's book included:
"Incredible and thought provoking"
"Very impressive! Your creative powers and sensitivity is a credit to you all"
"Thank you for the courage to let us glimpse in your artwork the passions you have for the future of our fragile world"
"Congratulations on your wonderful artwork"
Mr Mitchell and the Climate Action Team have been working hard making pen recycling pots for all teachers' desks in The Roseland Academy; allowing pens, highlighter pens, mechanical pencils, marker pens and board pens to be recycled by a member of the CAT once the pot is full.
The pot also features artwork by Year 9 student, Eleanor. These will be distributed around school soon and we can't wait to see the positive impact this will have on our recycling efforts.
