'Achievement For All'

Thank you for visiting us and I hope to be able to give you a flavour of what this school is like.

Geoff ManganOur school motto is 'Achievement for All' and these three key words sum up what this school is all about. Our aim is to enable every single one of our students to be a positive, cooperative and productive member of society and to be able to enjoy a happy and healthy lifestyle.

In order to achieve this, we all work extremely hard to give them as full and as round an education as we possibly can.

Welcome to the Creative Arts Department

We hope to show you what is going on in the Arts Faculty and the achievements we have made over the last year. We are starting our second year as a Performing Arts College. So much has happened already and we have lots of new ideas for the forthcoming year. We aim to offer many new and exciting extra curricular arts activities. Our arts in the community officer Becki Lunn has asked 500 students which new activities they would like to try - from Urban Art, jewellery making, metal work and even gumboot dancing. The students have been keen and can't wait to get started. Of course, we will keep you informed on the website!

We hope that you find the website useful as we have tried to include as much information as possible! There are pages for each subject area and also a resources page with homework policy information. There's also a links page with useful and recommended arts related sites. If you have any suggestions, comments or questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Anna Wood
Director of Arts

Roding Valley has achieved 'Performing Arts Status'. This in turn means that the schools full title is now 'Roding Valley High School Performing Arts College'. Arts Colleges will raise standards of achievement and the quality of learning in their chosen area of the arts for all their students, leading to whole school improvement in performance.

Arts College Logo

Arts Colleges will nurture within their students a lifelong passion for, and appreciation of, the arts as both participants and discriminating audiences. They will be inclusive by promoting enjoyment of many different artistic forms and encouraging participation in a wide variety of artistic activity for all students.

Arts Colleges will be innovative in finding new ways for learners to learn well. They will identify ways in which the arts can improve learning in other curriculum areas. They will take a lead in using ICT as a means of enhancing learning in the arts and other subjects. They will enable students to work in school with professionals involved in the arts and creative industries and to enjoy artistic experiences outside the classroom.

Arts Colleges will maximise the opportunities for young people to achieve in the arts and gain access to employment, further training and higher education in the arts.

Arts Colleges will be centres of excellence for the arts, sharing resources and developing and sharing leading practice with other schools and their communities. They will be committed to the professional development of staff.
