We find pupils flourish in these final three years at Rose Hill School. We see children develop into self-confident, articulate and polite young adults. The additional time spent in a prep school environment allows them to develop a huge range of skills before they make the important step into secondary education.
Universities and employers are clear that academic excellence alone is now insufficient for personal and professional success in the modern world. The abilities to think creatively and critically; problem solve and use initiative; mediate and negotiate; be resilient and empathetic are just a few of a range of key skills which are now given equal importance to academic achievement.
Years 6, 7 and 8 have a varied and exciting schedule of academic and co-curricular activities which are full of fantastic enrichment opportunities. Our year groups are small and nurturing and this enables the pupils to develop a true sense of self-worth and an understanding of how to be of value to society. This also provides excellent opportunities for the staff to support and fully extend the intellectual and academic growth of each individual.
We encourage pupils to be self-confident, inquiring and tolerant. We want them to lead by example, to develop a well-rounded character and have an independent mind. There is a focus on learning new life skills through the Rose Hill Diploma. This promotes practical experiences which support the skills they will need in the future, these include filling in an applications form, budgeting and voluntary work.
