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.
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.
