Roding Valley High School
Fundamental to our community is the principle that students and staff ARE Roding Valley High School- Aspiration, Respect and Endeavour are the key attributes that the school works hard to instil in students. They expect everyone in the school to aspire to be the very best that they can be, regardless of ability. Everyone should respect each other, be kind to others and be tolerant and embrace diversity. Students are expected to work hard to achieve challenging goals and the school insists on the highest standards of behaviour and conduct. Roding Valley has one aim – to ensure that every student achieves their potential.
At Roding Valley High School a student can expect high levels of support, encouragement and high quality teaching. An innovative approach to teaching and learning, data and assessment ensures that more students than ever are achieving high levels of academic success. The core purpose is to inspire confident learners to thrive in order to prepare them for the world beyond the school and help them become responsible individuals who will be valued members of society.
As well as academic success we are also proud of the wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities offered to our students. Sports teams complete at local, regional and national levels. There are also a wide range of trips and visits that allow our students to gain skills and experiences beyond the classroom.
The school is also part of the Epping Forest District 6th Form, a consortium with Debden Park High School, Epping St John’s School and King Harold Academy. This is now in its third successful year and is oversubscribed for 2018. The consortium model allows the school to offer a broad curriculum and provides students with many opportunities to progress into work and university. From the current Year 13 cohort, 97% have received an offer from a university and 14% have applied to Oxbridge.
