Your Education at Rossie
Tour of Education
Joining the Class
Based on your age group and stage of learning, you will join a class and have the opportunity to work towards gaining National Qualifications. We give you a lot of individual attention and so our classes are small with no more than 3 other young people in our secure school. There are at most 5 other young people in our residential school. This means you have the best chance of learning and gaining qualifications.
You have opportunity to gain qualifications in:
- Physical Education
- Craft Design and Technology
- Home Economics/Hospitality
- Personal and Social Education
- Modern Studies
- Business Administration
- Information and Communication Technology.
We are continually adding different subjects to the curriculum to give you more of a choice.
In the Classroom
If you miss class, we will do all we can to help you catch up.
Outside of the Classroom
We have additional support classes out of class time to provide you with further help with your learning.
We also have links with Who Cares? Scotland – this is a children and young people’s advocacy service which provides independent and personal support to all our young people who are living with us. They hold ‘participation groups’ every month which all of our young people can attend. This group helps you remember that you have a voice, and what you think and say matters. Recently, our young people took part in the 1000 Voices Campaign to help make children and young people’s care experience better.
We expect you to participate in an activity in the morning before school to help you prepare for the day ahead, The activities are part of our Breakfast Club and can include walking, having a dance session, or a trampoline session. The reason for these sessions is to wake you up and energise you, to help you have a more positive frame of mind which helps everyone’s mood and learning.
