The students had a great day getting to see behind the scenes of Wembley, experiencing what many of their favourite players do on a match day. Students were able to see the players shirts, walk down the tunnel and sit in the Royal seating area. Students looked at the different fitness test which put them through their paces. Each student represented the College in an exemplary way. Congratulations to Christopher D who won the ‘Who is the fittest?’ competition!

  • 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.

  • National Poetry Day

    Published 09/10/23

    National Poetry Day is an annual UK-wide celebration of poetry. This year’s celebration took place on Thursday 5th October 2023. During the day, students at Rosedale College got to hear from their form tutors and teachers who shared with them stories and readings of their favourite poems. Year 7s got to take part in a competition in which they had to find out as many staff members’ favourite poems as possible, and an interesting fact or two about the writer or the poem itself. There was also an inter-Alliance Poetry quiz for our new Year 7 tutor groups. Of course, our students also got a change to write their own poems too, with students getting the opportunity to create personal haiku poems about themselves in tutor times, and haiku poems to present new learning in their various lessons. Congratulations to Sachdeep in 7T who won the English Alliance Chaucer Challenge as part of the Year 6 to 7 transition.

  • 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.
