Welcome from the Head Teacher
On behalf of the students, staff and Governors I would like to welcome you to the Rooks Heath College website.
I am extremely proud to be in my nineteenth year as the Headteacher here at Rooks Heath. One of our greatest achievements is to have been judged by Ofsted, to be 'outstanding' for fifteen consecutive years. This reflects the hard work of our students, the support the College has from parents and carers and the commitment of a loyal and caring staff.
Rooks Heath has a warm and inviting atmosphere where students build valuable relationships with their teachers and other staff as they are guided on their individual learning pathways. We have a diverse curriculum that provides choices for all students and a dedicated staff that provides outstanding teaching to ensure that every child has the opportunity through learning to achieve success. At Rooks Heath all students have equal access to the resources to help them to achieve their full potential and we work closely with parents and carers to achieve this aim. Rooks Heath is a vibrant, inclusive College where students are encouraged to learn and achieve irrespective of gender, race, class, special needs, belief or any other personal characteristics. Communication between home and the College is extremely important to us at Rooks Heath and we value regular contact with parents and carers at all times. Students are expected to achieve high standards of work and behaviour in a friendly but disciplined learning environment. We aim to provide students with the skills and abilities to help them develop into independent, productive and resourceful young people.
At Rooks Heath we have a richly diverse student base and everyone makes excellent progress regardless of their different starting points. We have high achievers who have attained places at top Universities such as Oxford and Cambridge as well as students that arrive after year seven, with no prior attainment, who achieve results that are well beyond expectations. Students in our care are encouraged to treat everyone with respect and equality, accepting differences between each other as a chance to learn and widen their perspectives end understanding of an increasingly multicultural global society. The students at Rooks Heath are the adults of the future and we recognise the value in promoting kindness and understanding between people from all backgrounds.
