Rokeby Brochure 2020

At Rokeby our aim is to get the best out of every student; excellence in teaching and learning is therefore at the heart of our work. Our vision is based on five core values: Respect, Success, Passion for Learning, Personal Challenge and Harmony. In working towards instilling these values in our students, we strive to provide a safe, healthy and stimulating environment for all. We are proud specialists in mathematics and languages. These subjects transcend the linguistic barriers often present in other areas of the curriculum and students can experience early success. This builds self-confidence and a sense of achievement, which positively impacts upon all areas of school life. Welcome to Rokeby

Our curriculum is based around the needs of our students. Provision includes extension for the most able, as well as targeted support and intervention, to ensure all students achieve to the best of their ability and that they leave Rokeby equipped with the skills needed to excel in today’s world. By working in partnership with all stakeholders, especially parents and carers, we have created a dynamic and innovative learning environment. Our high expectations have resulted in impressive results. For the past five years, our students’ progress in English and maths at GCSE has been above the national average for boys. Exam results are only one measure of success; our students have accomplished significant achievements in the areas of sports, public speaking, enterprise initiatives, music, drama and dance.

Student Leadership Opportunities

The Student Leadership Group (SLG) represents the student body and comprises of representatives from each of the leadership teams. Our Student Leader and his Deputy have a regular seat alongside the Headteacher and senior leaders.

We encourage students to aimhigh andmake the most of their time with us. We offer a range of leadership opportunities, which we believe are essential to nurturing potential outside the classroom. Students can take on positions of responsibility such as senior/junior prefect, lunchmonitor, sports mentor, member of the year council, P4C champion, peer mediator or anti-bullying ambassador, to name a few.

These opportunities help to foster confident, independent and ambitious youngmen.

Extra-Curricular Activities

As well as our focus on team sports, Rokeby also encourages students to pursue their individual passions. Students are supported in developing their sporting potential; in recent years, cycling, weight training, handball, judo and rowing have been added to the curriculum, facilitated by external sports coaches. Drama, music, art and dance also play an important part of life at Rokeby. There are many opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities including: bands, choir and productions.

They will be multi-skilled, numerate, literate and most will be multilingual. They will be financially astute, enterprising, creative, adventurous and keen to play a major part in the communities where they live and work.

They will embody our values: Respect, Success, Passion for Learning, Personal Challenge and Harmony
