WHEN WILL ROSE HILL SCHOOL REOPEN?
Following the UK Government announcement of new measures designed to delay and minimise the impact of COVID-19; Rose Hill School will be providing a virtual learning environment from 23 March whilst the Government’s enforced closure of schools is operational. Given the dynamic nature of COVID-19, we will be monitoring the situation throughout the Easter break and follow all government guidance given to us. At the moment, it is unlikely that we will be able to reopen to pupils in time for the start of the summer term. If that happens, we are already fully prepared for all our pupils to be learning from home.
HOW WILL ROSE HILL SCHOOL COMMUNICATE ANY NEWS OR UPDATES?
We have already been in regular contact with our parents, staff and pupils via regular ‘Parentmails’ throughout the ongoing COVID-19 developments. Our current parents should therefore ensure they check their emails when they are received.
For prospective families or members of our wider Rose Hill School community, this page will be updated as required and all our social media accounts will actively keep our community informed. Prospective families can contact our Admissions throughout the Easter break and beyond at firstname.lastname@example.org and our Alumni can contact the Rose Hill School Society via RHSS@rosehillschool.co.uk.
WHAT ONLINE LEARNING MEASURES DO YOU HAVE IN PLACE?
When it is not possible for pupils to be present on site for long periods, Rose Hill School is committed to ensuring the quality of its education provision is maintained. If we are unable to do face-to-face teaching after the Easter break, rest assured that a rich and broad schedule of learning has already been developed, across PrePrep and Prep, and communicated to current parents and pupils.
Our teaching staff and their pupils will be connected using a number of learning provisions, including pre-recorded tutorials, curated videos, and live interactive chat sessions.
WHAT DOES LEARNING FROM HOME MEAN?
Pupils will work to a published timetable and will be expected to complete work within specified timeframes. They will have regular contact with teachers electronically and receive feedback on all work submitted. We recommend quiet space within your home with as few distractions as possible. Form Tutors and class teachers will also communicate with pupils to ensure pastoral continuity.

I AM INTERESTED IN SENDING MY CHILD TO ROSE HILL SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER 2020. CAN I STILL BOOK A VISIT?
Although visits are not currently taking place, we want to ensure that you have all the information you require before your child joins us. In this ever-changing situation, we cannot confirm when visits will start again but we ask you to speak to Admissions who can update and advise.
Our website has a wealth of material and films to give you a flavour of Rose Hill School life and video calls can be arranged. We look forward to welcoming you to Rose Hill School in the future.
I AM A MEMBER OF THE ROSE HILL SCHOOL SOCIETY. CAN I VISIT THE SCHOOL?
It is always lovely to welcome alumni back to the School but unfortunately, as all visits are currently not possible, in line with Government guidance, we ask that you communicate with the Rose Hill School Society who will be able to advise you further. Simply email RHSS@rosehillschool.co.uk.
WHAT ABOUT END OF TERM CELEBRATIONS?
At the moment, sadly we have no guarantees that these events will take place on the planned dates but rest assured, our leavers matter to us greatly, we will mark their departure from Rose Hill School in style at a future date.
