About The Roseland Academy

We are a small rural school with high aspirations and big ideas. We achieve exceptional outcomes for our students and in September 2017 we were graded as Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted.

The Roseland Academy is a strong community that works together and in which every member supports each other. The fact that we know and understand all of our students as well as we do enables us to forge a unique environment where everyone flourishes.

We encourage you to visit us and see for yourself.

Learning is our key focus. We organise students into tutor groups on entryand they will remain with these groups throughout their time at the Academy. Students are also placed into teaching groups, which vary in size, according to subject and ability. For example, some practical lessons may be smaller than non-practical lessons.

In some subject areas students are placed in groupings of similar ability, whilst in others they will be placed into mixed ability groups as we feel this delivers better learning opportunities. Two such examples of this would be Mathematics and Ethics and Philosophy, respectively. Our expert staff utilise creative and active learning opportunities to stimulate and encourage higher level learning skills. We aim to deliver learning opportunities that create young people who are ready to flourish in their adult lives.

Our Ethos

“The Roseland Multi-Academy Trust, Where Everyone Succeeds”

Our main aim is to foster an ethos in which every individual matters equally. Students are encouraged to aim high, achieve excellence and be happy through a creative, personalised curriculum with the meeting of individual needs and the development of emotional intelligence at its heart.

We also aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for vocational and real life learning. We see creativity as a vital part of each student’s experience in our academy and use creative methods of learning and teaching to raise student attainment and achievement to new levels.

Our values

We maintain an excellent atmosphere of a safe, well-disciplined school where adults and young people work harmoniously together to create a very positive learning environment. We are sensitive to the needs of all our students.

We believe that the all-important partnership of students, staff, parents, trustees and governors working together within our community in a supportive environment will ensure the best outcomes for all the young people in our care.

The school is proud of the outstanding progress students make from their entry at eleven years of age to their readiness for further education and training at the age of sixteen. The agenda for the school is one of continuous improvement.

To be successful, a school that meets the needs of all its students and serves its wider community cannot act in isolation. We are fully committed to developing and strengthening our links with our partner primaries across the Roseland Peninsula and our neighboring secondaries in Cornwall and beyond.

The academic data and welfare provided for all students demonstrates that achievement has never been higher, yet the focus of the staff year on year is to better the success of the past. The school wishes to be an organisation committed to listening to others and to build its success on the collective expertise of all those who have a stake in its development.

The Roseland Community Farm 

Our on-site farm is an important part of The Roseland Academy and is a unique resource of which we are very proud. Students have the opportunity to look after and learn about a wide range of animals, including goats, snakes, chickens, rabbits and mice. Teaching happens both on the farm and in our purpose built classroom. We also grow our own food and flowers using the greenhouse, polytunnel and vegetable patch.
