  • Notice from the School Nurse team and NHS about the services available.

    Published 14/06/23

    Dear parents / guardians,

    Health issues related to the current warm weather are causing our A&Es to be busier than usual, with waits of up to 11 hours in A&Es at the moment. A&E is for life threatening emergencies.  There are lots of NHS services that can help you. Knowing where to go, and when, will help you get the right care when you need it.

    Your local high street pharmacy can provide advice and over the counter medication to help with hayfever.  You can also contact your GP surgery or call 111 when your GP is closed.

    In this warm weather, when we also have a very high pollen count at the moment, make sure you follow our top tips to prevent yourself becoming unwell.

  • Public Health - Cases of Measles in Hillingdon

    Published 05/05/23

    The local Public Health team has informed us that there has been a recent increase in the number of cases of Measles in Hillingdon. The cases all children aged 1 to 16, and all are unvaccinated.

    The current MMR vaccination uptake in Hillingdon is less than 75%, which means that 1 in every 4 children in the borough has not had the two doses of MMR vaccination that provides safe, effective protection against measles. There is variation in uptake across areas of the borough, which means that is some areas a greater number of children have not been vaccinated. This increases the risk of measles transmission in schools.

    Measles is a highly infectious respiratory virus that transmits through respiratory droplets from an infected person when they cough and sneeze which is then inhaled by another person. If that person is not fully vaccinated the risk of getting measles is high.

    The signs and symptoms of measles to be aware of are:

    • Cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, sneezing, and a cough
    • Sore red eyes that may be sensitive to light
    • A high temperature (fever), which may reach around 40°C
    • Small greyish-white spots on the inside of the cheeks
    • A few days later, a red-brown blotchy rash will appear, usually starting on the head or upper neck, before spreading outwards to the rest of the body.

    It is important that if a child is suspected of having measles, they do not attend school. They must telephone their GP or NHS 111. Measles is a notifiable disease which means all cases must be followed up, and contacts identified and given advice on what action they need to take.

    For more information contact your GP or an visit the NHS information website:

  • Prom

    Published 28/07/23

    Friday 14th July 2023 saw a return to the Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust’s Year 11 Prom at the Q Vardis Mallard Suite in Uxbridge. The students dazzled us all with their glitz and glamour, and made memories to last a lifetime. With the ‘On the Red Carpet’ theme, our students arrived in style, dressed to impress, won academy awards and were celebrities for the night. From the grand entrances, to the sequins, sparkle, the suits and ties, the students made the 2023 Prom, a Prom to remember. Each student received VIP treatment: the paparazzi took their pictures upon arrival as they got out of their luxury cars, they were ushered to the red carpet where the lights continued to flash and then, the fun began inside, where the dancefloor and the 360 photobooth awaited them. In the midst of the enjoyment, the Prom Kings, Queens and Jokers were crowned and adorned with the sashes, and, new for this year, the Academy Award winners were given their trophies for the Kindness Award, the Brains of the Year Award and the Best Footballer award, amongst many others. On this special night, we celebrated the coming together of students from all four secondary colleges. Prom was a reminder that as a Trust, we have strong community ties and when we unite, it feels like a family reunion. This cohort celebrated each other’s wins like each were their own, and it was a night that far exceeded expectations.

  • Science Trip to ZSL London Zoo

    Published 10/07/23

    As part of the Science Alliance Week of activities, the Year 8 students visited the ZSL London Zoo on Tuesday June 27th which saw EALH attending and Thursday June 29th saw STMP attending. The students visited several habitats to observe various animals in action. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as this was their first time seeing some of these animals in real life. Some of these habitats included: the Tiger Territory where the tiger was seen relaxing on the upper limb of a tree; the Gorilla Kingdom where several gorillas were observed swinging from branch to branch; the Butterfly Paradise where the rare Scarlet Mormon was seen along with several unique butterflies. The section called, ‘In with the Monkeys’ had the students amazed as the monkeys were being their cheeky selves, playing with each other and mimicking the students’ actions. In the farm yard, two gigantic camels were seen chewing and flaunting their long lashes, students were curious about how the camels were able to survive in the UK as it is predominately cold, which provided the platform for a wonderful discussion about adaptations and they know that camels are adapted for survival in the dessert. On Penguin beach, the penguins were picture perfect as they walked to meet us and posed for their photos to be taken. Overall, the students were grateful for the opportunity to visit the Zoo as they were able to enjoy learning Science without the constraints of a classroom.
