The Roseland Academy Students Celebrate Stellar Exam Results

The Roseland Academy was filled with smiling faces and celebrations today, as students collected their GCSE results after a summer-long wait.

 Headteacher Chris Challis praised his students’ “incredible” accomplishments, noting, “This year’s results have surpassed our already extremely high expectations. On behalf of everyone at The Roseland Academy, I’d like to congratulate the students for all their hard work and the results they have achieved. It’s particularly pleasing to see such high progress rates in every subject which provide an excellent showcase of why we are regarded as an ‘outstanding’ education provider by Ofsted.”

 “The students have achieved a set of results that they themselves, their parents and their teachers should be proud of” he added. 

 Notably, Ashley celebrated outstanding individual results, achieving 9 grade 9’s and an A* in Additional Maths. He said, ‘ I am delighted with these results as I worked exceptionally hard and I I want to thank my teachers for their support..

 Ben was similarly delighted with his grade 9 in Maths, securing a place at Exeter Maths School. He said of his results, “I am so happy to be able to attend Exeter Maths School”.   Maddie, who achieved 6 grade 9’s, intends to go on to Truro College to study A-levels she said, ‘I am so pleased with my results and am looking forward to studying Sciences at A level.’ 

 “Today’s results are a reflection of years of hard work put in by students and staff alike. It’s fantastic to see so many smiling faces today, as this is an exceptional group of young people” said Deputy Head Richard Clarke. “They are a credit to The Roseland Academy and I’m sure many will have surprised themselves with what they have achieved today, but each and every student has earned their success.”

 The majority of Roseland students will now go on to further education at institutions across Cornwall, as they look to build on today’s achievements.

 “We anticipate these students will take further education in their stride, as long as they continue to work hard and keep the same enthusiasm we saw during their time with us. It is always a delight to hear about the amazing things our former students progress to, be it university study or heading into a career – we’re sure this group will be no different!”

 Mr Challis added, “Every year, I am blown away by the dedication and standard of care provided by the teaching staff and community at large associated with The Roseland Academy, and I would like to thank everyone who contributed to reaching this point today. The Academy has proven once again its proficiency at equipping students with the skills they need to make the most of their post results day opportunities. Moving forward, we wish each and every one of them luck!”

Year 5 Open Mornings

We are excited for our Year 5 Open Morning ,which takes place on Wednesday 19 June. This event gives students the opportunity to visit and experience our happy, successful and high performing school.

It is very important for children to feel at ease about his or her new school from the start of the process, and we take great care to ensure their happiness and that there is a smooth transition to secondary school. Our taster days are an important part of this as they allow children to join in lessons and learning activities with our students and staff. It also gives them the chance to form new friendships with students from other primary schools.

If you have any questions regarding our Year 5 taster days or would like your child to attend our additional Year 5 Taster Morning which is scheduled for Thursday 4 July, please do not hesitate to contact our Careers and Transition Co-ordinator Miss McWilliams on mmcwilliams@theroseland.co.uk

Year 9 Students Win Prizes in ‘Wild Roseland’ Photography Competition 2019

 

Following a recent Year 9 art project, a selection of student photography was exhibited in the ‘Wild Roseland’ Photography Competition and Exhibition at Gerrans Parish Memorial Hall on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 April.

The project was inspired by the theme ‘Our World, Our Planet’ and Year 9 students have been using their photographic skills to capture the impact of man-made materials and pollution on the natural environment, for example the devastating effect of plastics on our local beaches.

The exhibition also featured an exciting range of photography by the wider community, celebrating the natural beauty and bio-diversity of the Roseland area. Our students’ work looked fantastic and drew a lot of positive comments, as well as raising awareness about plastic pollution in and around the Roseland peninsula.

We are delighted to announce and congratulate our three talented prize winners for The Roseland Academy school category: Ciara (third prize), Leela (second prize) and Charlie (first prize) – and as always, we would like to thank the Roseland Festival and Wild Roseland teams for their generosity and ongoing support for the school.

Y9 Options Evening Tuesday 30 April 2019

To Parent(s)/Carer(s) of Students in Year 9

As you will recall, in March we started the Key Stage 4 options process with our Year 9 students when we released the initial ‘straw poll’ forms. This process will culminate this half term when students make their final choices for the courses they will take at GCSE or BTEC level when they start Year 10 in September.

You are warmly invited to attend our Key Stage 4 Options Evening on Tuesday 30 April from 6.00 – 8.00pm. Parents and students will have the opportunity to discuss GCSE/BTEC option courses in detail with subject teachers. We strongly recommend that all students attend this event with their parent(s)/carer(s). On the evening, we will also release our Options Booklet which outlines the curriculum structure in Key Stage 4, gives advice on how to make the right choices and provides information about the content of each course.

Following the Options Evening, the final options form will be released to students on the morning of Wednesday 1 May.

The final deadline for handing in completed options forms will be two weeks later, Wednesday 15 May.

It is anticipated that option choices will be confirmed before the May half term.

Prior to the deadline for the options form there will be a further opportunity to meet staff at the Year 9 Parents’ Evening on Wednesday 8 May from 4.00-6:30pm.  Information detailing how to book appointments through the online system will be given to students this week.
