Stephen Perse Rosedale House

A gentle introduction to the Stephen Perse Foundation family of independent schools, Rosedale House is a Cambridge junior that focuses on instilling its young pupils with good learning habits, curiosity and confidence from the get-go. Which means that one term there might be assemblies on how to apply courage to daily life; another, games specially loaded onto iPads in the library aimed at boosting concentration (we also rather like the sound of creativity day, which was kickstarted by Wallace & Gromit’s Snoozatron device).

In line with the senior school and under the headship of David Hewlett (he is big on digital learning), Rosedale House works on a ‘diamond model’ of teaching. This means that from Year 5, boys and girls begin to take some subjects in parallel – the idea being to combine the academic benefits of single-sex teaching with the social upsides of everyone being together the rest of the time.

Every fortnight, pupils in Years 3 to 5 have an outdoor lesson at the Latham Road site, where there’s a nature reserve and eco-classroom, as well as an Astroturf, netball courts and space for football or athletics (more games take place at the senior school). The vibe is inclusive: everyone takes a turn at being a sports captain, everyone learns the recorder and everyone is encouraged to perform in concerts. There are seven school houses, where year groups come together for competitions and events, adding to the all-round give-it-a-go spirit....
