Rosehill Intermediate School offers an engaging environment full of opportunities and choice. Students are encouraged to involve themselves in a wide range of activities. They have opportunity to develop their skills and abilities in a varied and exciting range of sporting, recreational, cultural and service endeavours.

Student Leadership

We believe leadership is an important quality to have as a person and therefore value leadership by providing many opportunities for students to be leaders across the school. Examples of leadership opportunities offered at Rosehill Intermediate are our student council leadership team which consists of head boy, head girl, deputy heads and councillors from other classrooms, House Captains, and Cultural leaders.

These leadership opportunities enable student agency and allow our students to develop leadership qualities to take forward into the future.

Sporting Opportunities

Our vision for sport at Rosehill Intermediate is to encourage as many of our students as possible to actively take part in sporting activities. Students participate in sport throughout the year, ranging from class fitness sessions, PE lessons and Syndicate Sports once a week.  We also offer lunchtime sports, a Sports 4 U (after school program) and opportunities to represent our school at the Counties Zone level in a variety of sporting codes.

We encourage our students to participate in our sporting activities because of the benefits both physically and mentally.  Our programme encourages students to make new friends, to play a sport for participation or competitiveness, learn new skills, stay fit and healthy and so much more.
