Information for university and college admissions teams 2021 2022
- As a comprehensive 11-19 academy Rossett School’s aim is to ensure that our students achieve their potential - “Success for Everyone” – from Year 7 through to Sixth Form and beyond.
- Our 'destinations data' places Rossett School well above the North Yorkshire and national averages. In practice this means that all our Key Stage 4 students sustain their education, employment and training when they move to the next stage of their education.
- Catchment and pupil demographic information can be further obtained from the attached link https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/school/136896/rossett-school/secondary
- With an A level pass rate of over 99% we are delighted that each year our Sixth Form students leave Rossett with excellent qualifications to enter the universities of their choice, including the most prestigious Russell Group or Sutton Trust Universities.
- Predicted grades are based on a rigorous cycle of internal assessment. Internal progress reporting occurs at three points throughout the academic year, based on assessment evidence marked in line with exam board guidelines. Mock exams were conducted at the end of Year 12, providing students with some invaluable examination practice in exam conditions, following the cancellation of their GCSE examinations the previous year. This ensures accurate predicted grades are in place.
- Rossett School Sixth Form offers a broad and balanced curriculum of both academic and vocational qualifications. Alongside studying three or four A Level or vocational qualifications, students' study either Core Maths or the Extended Project Qualification, alongside a Personal Development programme.
- The current Year 13 cohort of students have had the last two years of their education significantly disrupted by the COVID pandemic. This includes learning at home via Microsoft Teams during multiple lockdowns, periods of self isolation and the cancellation of GCSE examinations for this cohort. Following baseline assessments and academic review meetings, staff have implemented individualised catch up plans for each subject and student to ensure that all required content has been covered.
