Welcome to our Rosedale House virtual open day experience where we will highlight the exceptional teaching and learning environment we provide for the educational development of our pupils. Our school is a friendly, busy place where we build on discovery and individual potential, where horizons expand rapidly involving science, languages, sports, music, drama and fundraising, and where positive learning habits and thinking skills are part of every lesson.
Find out how we offer a breadth of experience in a stimulating environment where every pupil is known and celebrated. Find out how our pupils enjoy limitless ways to discover their own strengths while gaining life-long skills, as well as the confidence to take their next steps as they progress in education.
Welcome from our Head of Rosedale House David Hewlett
We encourage children to be active learners – to ask questions, to make mistakes and to explore their interests and talents. By combining academic rigour with creative, flexible teaching we see our pupils grow as independent learners.

We do not over assess. Ensuring that formal assessments take place only where most relevant, providing data that informs on our planning and pupils progress. Pupils are assessed on entry to the school to ensure they are able to meet the needs of our curriculum. Yearly, all pupils take part in a maths and English assessments that allows us to track progress year on year. Year 4 -6 will carry out a CAT 4 assessment that focuses on cognitive ability.
Throughout our curriculum teachers will carry our less formal check up types tests to help inform planning and that the needs of the pupils are met.
On entry to the school the pupils will be asked to complete a maths and English assessment.
When we are up and running with our regular clubs provisions most children will have an option each evening for joining an extracurricular club. These reference our curriculum and include sports clubs, music clubs, art clubs as well as the more unusual nature clubs, coding clubs and perhaps a lego club. We regularly survey our pupils to ask what they would like the opportunity to do.
The majority of clubs are run by our teachers and are delivered free of charge, however there are a few clubs that are run by external companies and carry a cost.
