The Roseland Community College one of the best in the country for student progress at GCSE

Eo 2014 AwardThe Roseland Community College has received national recognition for the value it adds to students' achievements at GCSE.

SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified The Roseland Community College's success in the 2014 end of KS4 exams.  The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: ‘The Roseland Community College should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share.

‘These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at The Roseland Community College, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.'

 
Roseland Festival 2016 Fund Art Transition Project

1507_roseland_festival_2016.jpgWe are delighted to announce that we have been granted nearly £1000 by the Roseland Festival to fund a new and exciting Art project for The Roseland Community College and partner primaries, due to take place next academic year 2015/16.

While some of the finer details have yet to be finalised, we envisage working with all nine partner primaries in a series of art workshops leading to a public exhibition of the resulting pieces of work in Spring 2016. The theme is "A Sense of Place" to celebrate our beautiful natural surroundings and Cornish heritage. In practical terms we aim to collaborate with a local artist, who will be the lead practitioner for the project, and we also plan to send specialist Roseland staff and some of our secondary students into individual primary schools to work alongside primary staff and pupils.

We are very grateful to our generous sponsors and thrilled that the project will form part of the wider Roseland Festival programme of events which will take place between 23rd April and 7th May 2016, further details to be released soon - watch this space!

Kakatsitsi Return to The Roseland for World Culture Day 2015

KakatsitsiOn Wednesday 1st July Roseland students enjoyed a multicultural assembly and programme of music and dance workshops to celebrate our World Culture Day.  As part of their tour of the South West, internationally acclaimed Ghanaian drummers "Kakatsitsi" gave a fantastic performance in a special afternoon assembly followed by African drumming and dance workshops for members of our college samba band, samba dancers and Irish dancing club.  

There was even time for a cultural exchange at the end of the day when our Irish dancers decided to give an impromptu performance to our Ghanaian guests! Students from various year groups also enjoyed a series of 'Bharatanatayam' style Indian dance workshops within timetabled dance lessons, delivered by visiting dance practitioner Kay Crook from Chhaya Collective. Tutor groups also took part in a multicultural quiz and many lessons were linked to the international theme. Our World Culture Day marks a new annual event promoting internationalism across the whole school, designed to raise awareness of global culture in a positive, exciting way!
