Friday 4th May 2018, message from Miss Brown, Deputy Headteacher
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely bank holiday weekend. It has been a very busy term and our students have been involved in a range of exciting activities this term including a KS3 Maths Challenge organised by the Maths Department. In addition preparations are well underway for our Achievement Awards Evening at Glyndwr University on Thursday 12th July. Further information will follow.
For Parents of Year 6 students joining us in September, you will have received your welcome letter with the arrangements for the transition days and the parent welcome evening being held on Wednesday 27th June in the school hall. The evening will be hosted by our new Headteacher Mr Andrew Brant and further transition information will be added to our Transition Page once finalised.
Our Y11 students have been working very hard and attending sessions after school revision sessions. A letter is being issued to Y11 students today outlining important information regarding the school Prom and home study arrangements. The GCSE Examinations commence on Tuesday 8th May and there are a number of pre exam briefings available to support your child. A copy of the letter is available under the Parents section of the school website.
Finally, on behalf of all staff I would like to wish all of our Y10 and Y11 students the best of luck in their exams.
At Ysgol Rhosnesni High School we are proud of the achievements of our students in a wide range of fields both academic and enrichment, and we believe in high standards and expectations. We believe that we can make a positive difference to the future life-chances of each and every young person.
We believe in working together with our students to develop their future roles as ambassadors of learning, citizens and workers and aim to equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding they will need for future adult life.
In Year 7 all pupils start with an introduction to Science Course in the first half term. Pupils then work through three major themes – one per term. All pupils study the same topic at the same time. These topics are: Interdependence of Organisms, The Sustainable Earth and How Things Work. They are tested on each topic on completion. This allows for movement between sets as pupils progress through the course.

Pupils complete 3 units of work in Year 9, one in each term. These are; Interdependence of Organisms, The Sustainable Earth and How Things Work. Each unit is tested at the end of the term. The current attainment level shown below is based on units studied prior to this report. Pupils will also sit an end of year exam covering all the work studied during the year.
