At Rokeby every student is given the opportunity to engage in Philosophy for Children (P4C) as part of our outstanding curriculum. During each enquiry our boys develop the four ‘C’ skills – creative, collaborative, critical and caring.

In light of recent governmental changes to the National Curriculum Rokeby is currently developing it’s response to the removal of levels at Key Stage 3.

At Key Stage 4 we are experiencing the introduction of new GCSEs (with our remaining few subjects starting in September 2017), these GCSEs will be graded numerically as opposed to the old alphabetic system. A DfE leaflet explaining the conversion of letter to number grades, in more detail, can be seen here.
