From 2018 onwards Rooks Heath College will be enrolling all students who join in Year 7 onto the PiXL Edge programme.
The PiXL Club, Partners in Excellence, works with over 1300 secondary schools, 500 Sixth Forms, 40PRUs and 170 Primary Schools. Their focus is on raising standards at GCSE, A level and Key Stage 2, by focussing not just on academia, but also on the important life skills and attributes that contribute to exam success.
