The senior school is a vibrant place where academic excellence is encouraged and expected. Our highly qualified and experienced staff prepare an exciting curriculum, which stretches and challenges all pupils, leading to continued exam success. Whether that be a love of science, the creative arts, a passion for literature or achieving sporting excellence, we shape and develop our teaching to meet the needs of our pupils.
We pride ourselves on our excellent pastoral care. The relationships pupils develop with the staff and their peers epitomises ‘the Rookwood family’. We strive to support, champion and encourage individuals to be the very best version of themselves.
Our Senior School places pastoral care at the heart of everything we do. This starts with form tutors who build positive relationships with their tutees. We also follow the Emotional Assertiveness programme, which teaches students the importance of respecting their own emotions and those of others. For those times when a student needs some extra support, they are able to visit our ELSA-trained Pastoral Support Assistant, Mrs Newton, in The Hub or our Counsellor, Mrs Taylor.
Through a combination of small classes and focused teaching from experienced and dedicated teachers, our students achieve excellent GCSE grades. With more than 40% of results at the highest Grades 7 to 9, we are in the Telegraph’s top 200 independent schools for GCSE grades. This is particularly impressive given that Rookwood is non-selective.
