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.
Yesterday, visiting concert pianist Richard Meyrick delivered two inspiring masterclasses for students at The Roseland Academy.
Professional pianist Richard travels the length and breadth of the UK as part of 'The Pianoman Scholarships Scheme', a national programme to encourage and nurture talented young pianists, courtesy of sponsors Sir Harvey and Lady McGrath.
Five talented pianists from Years 8 to 11 (Imogen, Wilf, Poppy, Russell and Jacob) were invited to prepare a solo performance piece in advance in order to take part in the masterclass, and each young performer received an individual coaching session in front of an invited audience of GCSE Music classes and instrumental music students.
Richard also performed two outstanding solo works for our students, by Chopin and Rachmaninov, and gave the group some entertaining insights into the world of professional music making and the art of performing.
Richard's invaluable experience and advice gave students a new perspective on their technique and future goals for the preparation and presentation of their own performance pieces.
The Roseland Football Academy travelled away tonight with 52 students to take on Brannel School across 4 different year groups.
The 22 Year 7 Roseland students played in a number of competitive 6-A-side games, winning and losing an equal amount overall.
The Year 8 team had a hard-fought game but just lost out in the end, 6-5.
The Year 9 team put in their best efforts, but came up against a strong Brannel team, losing 6-2 on the final whistle.
The Year 10 team really worked hard throughout the whole match, with all the possession, but couldn't convert this into goals unfortunately. Sadly they lost 3-2 after a number of missed opportunities in the second half.
Overall all The Roseland students had great time representing The Roseland Academy and as always were great ambassadors of our brilliant school.
