A pivotal year in any student’s education is their GCSE year. At Rosebery, we believe in our students developing their skills, knowledge and understanding of their chosen subjects and the Core curriculum in order to achieve their potential. Progress towards their GCSE examinations is monitored closely with suitable intervention strategies from subject staff as well as the Form Tutor, Deputy and Head of Year.
Developing independence in students’ study skills is also crucial to success and a lifelong love of learning is nurtured through a strong pastoral support system. Students are encouraged to participate in enrichment activities alongside their timetabled curriculum and we are pleased that our students maintain a healthy balance of work and leisure activities. There are many opportunities to develop leadership through Student Voice, the Level 1 Sports Leader Award, Rosebery Schools own Leadership award scheme, charity events and participation in sporting, musical, artistic and social events. We aim to support our Year 11 students in the important decisions about post16 education and each one is guided through applications and interviews for our Sixth Form as well as other places of study.
Year 11 is an important academic year and we aim for our students to be deservedly proud of their success in their GCSE examinations and move confidently into the next stage of their education.
The year culminates with the Year 11 Prom, Thursday 22 June 2017, 7.00pm at Sandown Park Racecourse.

“Your videos are a great help for me, especially considering that I am a visual learner. I think I can see a very evident difference in my grades when I revise from other sources to when I revise from your videos.”
