We believe that education and personal development happens both inside and outside of the classroom. The Roseland Academy has an extensive range of extracurricular activities to enrich the children’s learning experience. Teacher-led clubs take place at lunchtime or after school and vary through the school year. These include surfing, Greenpower Electric car racing, Drama, a wide range of sports, and Dance.
In the summer term, the school collapses the timetable and runs our famed ‘Activities week’ where students are offered a wide range of activities to develop wellbeing social and life skills.
e For the past seven decades, the Duke of Edinburgh Award has inspired and transformed the lives of millions of young people from all walks of life. From volunteering to physical activities, life skills to expeditions, achieving a DofE Award is a passport to a brighter future, valued by employers and universities.
We are a Duke of Edinburgh Directly Licensed Centre (DLC) at The Roseland Academy, which allows us to deliver the Internationally recognised Award to our students in Years 9 & 10.
We currently offer the Bronze & Silver Award and have been very successful over the past few years with up to 50% of a year group participating in the award, receiving a commendation from Cornwall Council & Cornwall Outdoors in the process.
Below shows the timescales for each section:
