    On Monday 15th January, our Year 11 Geography students went on their urban area fieldwork as per the Edexcel GCSE curriculum.

  • 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.

    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.
