Welcome to our school

I would like to welcome you to the Roding Valley High School website and to introduce myself to you as Headteacher. Roding Valley is an 11-18 all ability, co-educational school. As an inclusive school we offer a range of excellent facilities and high quality teaching that provides our students with a first rate education from Year 7 onwards.

I have very high expectations for Roding Valley High School moving forward. I demand first class teaching, outstanding academic achievement, exceptional care, guidance and support, and excellent enrichment provision for all students. It is my aim that every student becomes a confident and responsible member of society and can go on to lead a happy and fulfilling adult life.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate last year’s Year 11s on their strong performance in their GCSEs in the summer. 62% of students achieved the headline indicator of 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths. This was a good return in a year where changing Government policies have meant that many schools have had their grades hit hard. We are also delighted with our positive Progress 8 measure demonstrating that students at Roding Valley make greater than expected progress across their best 8 subjects during their time with us. Clearly students should be applauded for their efforts but I would also like to thank the staff for the part that they played in these outcomes. They worked tirelessly to support the students throughout the two years and deserve a huge amount of credit.

It is certainly an exciting time for Roding Valley High School and I believe the fact that we have opened our Sixth Form in September 2015 will help to propel the school to become a first rate academic establishment. I am delighted that so many students decided to stay on to study for their A Levels here, taking advantage of the positive working relationships that they have developed with staff over the years.

Roding Valley High School enjoys a good reputation within the local community and it is my ambition that we will become the school of choice for students, parents and staff in the area in the years to come. Our highly professional staff are dedicated to ensuring that every student realises their full potential. All students are challenged to make excellent progress and our no excuses culture ensures that all students are driven to achieve their best.

Mr James Luck

Headteacher
