  • Belguim Trip

    Published 21/04/24

    On Friday 22nd March, 14 excited Key Stage 3 students were gathered at the college at 5:30am for the start of a long, exciting journey to Belgium and back. Taking the Eurotunnel to Calais then on to Belgium, the first stop was the impressive Passchendaele Memorial Museum, which has uniforms, weapons, artillery and memorabilia all with an audio guide, before going down into the living quarters and trenches from the famous battle which took place there. After the museum, the students were taken to the picture-postcard pretty town of Ypres, for lunch and, of course, a trip to one of the famous Belgian chocolate shops. Once we returned to the minibus, the next stop was the Cite Europe shopping centre in Calais for the students to practise their French, before taking the Eurotunnel back. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and made some long-lasting memories of Belgium.

    Published 19/01/24

    On Monday 15th January, our Year 11 Geography students went on their urban area fieldwork as per the Edexcel GCSE curriculum. The students, accompanied by their teachers, travelled via TFL to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford. During the field trip, the students were required to compare two parts of Stratford. They looked at a deprived area in Carpenter’s Estate and a regenerated area in New Village. Despite the cold weather, our students were able to collect the necessary data for their examinations.

They encountered many unique shops, restaurants, and cafes that were specific to the area.

  • World Mental Health Day

    Published 13/10/23

    To mark World Mental Health Day on Tuesday 10th October, Rosedale College welcomed Theatre for Life - a Theatre in Education Company from Southampton who brought to our stage the production of Silent Mind, which explores Mental Health issues and gives ideas for coping strategies. Watching the play was a positive and inclusive experience for our young people, as an interactive piece of theatre it actively involved students in wellbeing and mindfulness techniques to help promote personal growth and wellbeing. This is an authentic piece of theatre based on real life experiences of mental health, carefully communicating various issues impacting young people today. The audiences actively participate in therapeutic drama based activities within the play and workshop to personal growth and wellbeing. Also, a week of assemblies were held on Mental Health Matters. Students were informed about how to seek help if needed and were reminded of the counselling and mentoring services they can access at here at college, as well as the lunchtime talking therapy we provide. At Rosedale we care about Mental Health Wellbeing for all students and staff.
