Outstanding Results at The Roseland Academy

This morning students at The Roseland Academy at Tregony enthusiastically opened their results and celebrated their successes with staff, parents and friends.

“I’m overjoyed to announce that our students have again achieved beyond all expectations. This is the third year in a row that the outcomes for The Roseland students are well above the national picture. Our success is down to the hard work and dedication applied by our Year 11 students and the ongoing, unwavering support of our staff at The Roseland Academy,” said Headteacher Mr Challis.

“We’re all tremendously proud of them.”


There were many individual successes among them:
Ciaran celebrated outstanding progress, attaining grade 9 in English Language, 8 in Literature and a 7 in Mathematics which were well beyond his expectations. He said: “I’m overwhelmed with my results.”
Rowan, Jasmine and Jonty impressed staff and peers alike as the highest achieving students. Jasmine said: “I’m really happy, I put a huge amount of work into my subjects and it has paid off.”
Deputy head Mr Clarke added: “These great results are undeniably down to the sheer determination of our Year 11 students and dedicated staff. It’s been a pleasure to watch them grow throughout their school career and we are confident the future is bright for them.”
Jack was also thrilled with his results after receiving a grade 9 in Music along with a series of other high grades. He said: “I’m so pleased to have achieved the highest grade possible in music.”


Mr Challis added: “All our Year 11 students have been a pleasure to teach and it’s heartwarming to see everyone so excited, especially as many exceeded their own expectations. They should all feel extremely proud of themselves, just as all members of staff at The Roseland Academy are proud of them.”


“As we say our final goodbyes to the class of 2018, we wish them a fantastic rest of the summer and the best of luck in the future; be it in further education, work or travel.”

New! EMI Rock School

We are delighted to announce that earlier this year the school was granted a donation for music education by the EMI Music Sound Foundation in celebration of the Charity’s 20th Anniversary. The expanded donation has allowed the school to invest in some fantastic new musical equipment and supported an exciting range of extra-curricular musical activities at The Roseland Academy, as well as expanding our musical outreach to partner primary schools.

This year The Roseland Academy has spent some of the EMI MSF funding on a new ‘Rock School’ after-school club to nurture some of our most talented young musicians and provide them with further performance opportunities. The club has been led by our resident Guitar Tutor Mr Crowe and Expressive Arts Development Officer Wendy Polley, with support from other Music and DPT Department staff.

At the end of the summer term 2018 our rock school students put on a fantastic show, performing work in progress in an informal showcase to parents and carers. The evening included some rock classics, original compositions, and a wide range of solo and group performances. Entry to our rock school programme is by audition, and we hope to develop this project with further activities next academic year – please see Miss Polley for more details.
