At Rossett we like to celebrate the success of both current and former students. We know that many former students have gone on to varied careers and that we have ex-Rossett students who are airline pilots, journalists, musicians, in caring professions and there are some who have been extremely successful in setting up their own businesses and in the fields of sport and entertainment.
- My name is PJ Stubbs and I am 20 years old, currently 2x Yorkshire heavy weight champion and rank 8 in England for boxing. I was at Rossett from year 7 all the way through to year 13, at Sixth Form I did one A level in BTEC-sport alongside attempting to get my Maths and English GCSE. I finished Sixth Form on the Friday and came back on the Monday as a teaching assistant, so really I haven’t even finished school yet. As a teaching assistant I am based in the bridge/social inclusion helping out lots of different children who struggle with different aspects of school, weather its behaviour, work load, or anxiety. It’s a really rewarding job as I struggled with school myself so it’s nice to help out kids who are in my shoes.
- My Name is Jen Scott and I went to Rossett from 2006-2013, At A Level I studied English Language, IT, Psychology and Spanish. I am now 21 and I work as an IT Technician within Rossett school, I am responsible for a multitude of things including iPads, fixing broken computers and I am also helping implement the new
rewards system “VIVO” within school.
- My name is Philippa Wordsworth (nee Davies). I attended Rossett High School between 1986-1991. I took A levels in English Literacy, French, German and General Studies. I
was Social whilst in the Sixth Form at Rossett and had the dubious honour of organising the Sixth Form Christmas ball, as well as other events. I went on to read law at Manchester University. In 1995, I was called to the Bar at Gray’s Inn, after taking my Bar examinations at the Inns of Court School of Law, in London. I am now a practising barrister at Zenith Chambers in Leeds, specialising in family law.
- My name is Laura Atkinson I was a student at Rossett between 2004 and 2011 where one of my main passions was studying textiles. It was thanks to Mr Holmes and Mrs Webster that I was able to get an A* at GCSE and hold Rossetts highest grade for textiles at the time. I was also awarded the achievements award for textiles and also helped in the younger years classes while I was in sixth form. It was through this help and drive that I am now in my final year studying fashion design at Northumbria University.
We would like to invite former students to come and visit us and share their stories and life experiences with our current students, and hopefully meet some of the staff that may have influenced them during their time at Rossett. If you are a former student and would be interested in joining the ranks of Rossett School Alumni please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also be grateful if you could pass these details on to any former students you may know.
