    Here at Rosedale, students get the opportunity to understand Mathematics conceptually rather than rote learning. With the use of two computer suites available on the Mathematics corridor and using software such as Geogebra, Desmos and Autograph, students are able to draw graphs using them and have a better understanding of certain topics in Mathematics.

  • Year 12 Trip To Shakespeare on Trial

    Published 14/10/22

    From Wednesday 5th - Friday 7th October, six Year 12 students enjoyed a three-day extravanganza as part of Brunel University London’s Shakespeare on Trial trip, in collaboration with The Globe Theatre and the Royal Courts of Justice. The programme brought literature and the legal system to life by subjecting fully-realised fictional characters to in-depth examination, using Shakespeare’s The Tempest as visual and textual evidence and giving our young people an opportunity to experience both the world of the theatre and the drama and theatricality of the courtroom. The course also provided our students with the opportunity to experience what it would be like to study in a university environment, as well as visiting London’s iconic Royal Courts of Justice. Our students developed their confidence in public speaking and awareness of legal procedure, as well as critical thinking; analysing evidence; ordering ideas; formulating an argument; presenting information concisely, logically and persuasively and using an appropriate tone and register. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the Globe’s performance of The Tempest, the lectures and the mock trial at the Courts.

  • GCSE Results 2022!

    Published 23/09/22

    Early morning on Thursday 25th August, staff joined our Year 11 students to celebrate the release of their GCSE results. Emotions were high because students were keen to fulfil their aspirations, which in turn would allow them to move on to the next steps in their academic journey, or pursue alternative pathways. Students have worked incredibly hard in these unprecedented times to ensure their futures were not compromised because of a global pandemic; their might and determination was second to none.

    Students at Rosedale College are continuing to improve in both their attainment and achievement. The College is continuing to perform on an upward trajectory, which is a true testament to the highly motivated and committed staff we have. Our successes are visible in both academic and vocational subjects, which is indicative of our holistic approach to education. Overall, 63% of our students achieved five strong passes at GCSE including English and Mathematics, which is above the national average of 60.3%. Our English GCSE strong passes at grade 5 and above reached an impressive 70% against a national average of 61%, with Mathematics strong passes at grade 5 and above achieving 67% against a national average of 56%.
