Year 7 Transition Information

Welcome Year 7! It is with great pleasure I am welcoming you to Rosedale College; your home away from home, for the next 5 to 7 years. You will join us as children, but leave us as successful young adults; this journey to adulthood we will undertake together. The College prides itself on its inclusive ethos thus we will endeavour to ensure that you will feel comfortable within days of starting your Secondary school journey with us.

Rosedale college students attain exceptional results in all GCSE subjects with us exceeding or matching national averages. Our Progress 8 and Attainment 8 score puts us in the top 5% of the country for progress. Choosing us has already put you in an excellent positon to succeed; may your successes continue each day you are with us. Similarly, our sporting achievements are second to none, we are Borough Champions in Cricket; our sporting accolades can be found in Football, Basketball, Netball and Athletics. We are eager to promote a balance between academia and extra-curricular to nurture the talents of all of our students’.

The College is divided into 8 Alliances and each one comprises of one Form class from each year group. This vertical approach in pastoral leadership has proven to be highly beneficial, because it not only builds camaraderie amongst the College as a whole, but also offers students role models they can aspire to. This unique approach has ensured staff and students bask in a cohesive and productive environment. You will be put into your Alliances as soon as you get allocated a Form class.

Induction Day Tuesday 6th July 2021

We are very much looking forward to welcoming our new students in September. Unfortunately, due to the extension of the current government restrictions in place due to Covid-19, it will not be possible to hold our Induction and Transition Day as planned. I am sure this will come as disappointing news, we were very much looking forward to meeting all our new students. Instead, we will be updating this page with all the information you would have received on 6th July, and writing to you and your parents, guardians and carers about booking a tour, and also about our exciting summer school programme in August – watch this space!

College Uniform Orders

We have arranged for uniform to be sold online. You will need to register your details in order to proceed; this will allow you to make your selection, pay for your order online and then arrange for a convenient time for collection. We do encourage you to use the sizing and measurement guide that will be available on the website. A hard copy of this guide has already been provided to the parents, guardians and carers of those students who will join us in Year 7 in September.

Due to government recommendations, there will be limited opportunity to try on any garments, so please do use the guide mentioned above. We can assure you that any exchanges will only be considered if all the tags and packaging are intact. We will also wait for 48 hours before returning the garments to the stock pile before someone else is able to purchase it; this is in line with the guidance that most retail outlets are following. We hope you find this new system of transaction helpful.

Cashless Catering System

The College is now operating a cashless catering system - iPayimpact. In an attempt to eliminate cash payments, parents, guardians and carers are requested to pay for their child's school meals using our online payment system. This will provide you with a convenient, secure and verifiable way of making online payments for school meals as well as uniform and trips.

Students will need to be registered to be able to purchase items from the canteen. Once registration is complete, you will have access to your account statement and will be able to manage your payment history and automate online payments. Students will then be able to make payments by simply placing their finger on the reader, alternatively a passcode can be used on our keypad with recognition done through our biometric technology. The software will then automatically deduct the value of the items from the student's account. 

This is a simple and secure way for parents, guardians and carers to make trusted cashless payments and efficiently manage school purchases. If you have any queries or wish to discuss our new cashless payment system, please contact the College at

It's a Jungle Out There - Stay Safe on the Roads

For some, the transition from Year 6 to Year 7 can be a daunting prospect. With the uncertainty of what to expect at your new school, who your peers will be, and preparing yourself with the new route to and from school, this can result in a myriad of feelings from excitement, apprehension to anxiety. To ease the transition process, Hillingdon Council has teamed up with London Road Safety Council to run a campaign to support Year 6 pupils in making a safe start at secondary school in September. Please click on the links below for further information about road safety, how to devise a safe route to and from school, and how children should behave on the roadside in order to undertake this in the safest way possible.
