Launch of new Curriculum for Rose Hill School
Rose Hill School has this September launched their new curriculum, Curriculum 2020. The new framework has been designed over the last 18 months using feedback from universities and the employment sector, international trends in education, a breadth of educational research findings and consultation with local senior schools.
Philippa Lang-Daly, Deputy Head and the project lead for Curriculum 2020 said “the abilities to think creatively and critically; problem solve and use initiative; mediate and negotiate; be resilient and empathetic are just a few of a range of key skills which are now given equal importance to academic achievement. Universities and employers are clear that academic excellence alone is now insufficient for personal and professional success in the modern world”.
The curriculum framework is comprised of three key concepts – the Acquisition of Knowledge, the Application of Knowledge and Assessment Of and For Learning. The curriculum will enable staff to assess pupils’ learning in many different ways, drawing out individual pupils’ intelligences, which do not always come to the fore during a written test. Teachers will help pupils to identify their talents, and track their own progress through personal learning portfolios.
Project work and immersive learning activities will encourage the development of collaborative learning skills, presentation and research skills. Outdoor learning activities will be regular events, and pupils will develop a greater understanding of their place in the world and all they can do to make a positive global impact.
Emma Neville Head said “this new curriculum is a unique and exciting framework for learning. It has been designed to ensure that Rose Hill School pupils are high functioning citizens and are fully prepared for the demands of education and employment in the 21st century”.

On Wednesday 11 March the Reception children went on a visit to the nature trail at Coolings Garden Centre in Knockholt. There was great excitement, even before we boarded the minibus in our salopettes, coats and wellies.

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.
