The school has a Learning Development Centre (LDC) which offers specialist teaching for those with SEN (such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, Autistic Spectrum conditions or difficulties with aspects of learning such as social integration, anger or anxiety). The head of this department acts as SENCO. Pupils with learning difficulties-physical or cognitive-will have their needs assessed and monitored and may be offered support if the HoD considers that such support would be beneficial. The school will work with parents, and with external agencies where appropriate, to determine suitable provision. If at any stage the school finds itself unable to meet the child’s changing needs, recommendations will be made for alternative educational provision.
Scholars are a core part of School life at Rougemont. Scholars are expected to take the lead in the academic and extra-curricular life of the School with active involvement in clubs, committees, house events and teams providing leadership, inspiration and excellent role models for younger pupils.
In assessing candidates we are not simply recognising existing talent but will also take into account pupils’ future potential, motivation and aspiration. Scholars are expected to consistently achieve high standards.
It is important that potential candidates, both internal and external read the criteria carefully to ensure that they will meet the standard.
Sixth Form bursaries are also available. Five A grades at GCSE are required, including the subjects to be studied at AS Level. Bursaries are means-tested. We are also able to offer a number of means-tested bursaries to pupils in Year 7 and above. If you would like more information on bursaries, please contact the Registrar in the first instance.
Choosing the right School is one of the most important decisions you will make. Our aim at Rougemont is to make sure that all students get the most they can from their education, enjoy their time with us and achieve their highest potential – we call this Rougemont Ready. Rougemont really is a ‘School for Life’ and for the 21st Century. We invite you to come and see for yourself what makes us special and our pupils so successful.
Rougemont Nursery, the Preparatory School and the Senior School each have unique qualities, but all share the common purpose of providing students with a first class education and the opportunity to work towards higher education and a successful career.
There are strong academic standards across the School and students are encouraged to have high expectations. The most recent Estyn report praised the School’s particularly strong GCSE and A Level results, which are well above the national average – placing us “amongst the highest performing Schools in Wales.”
