What Others Say About Us

Teaching Assistants, Willoughby Academy - 22nd November 2021


Thank you so much to everybody at Rosehill for showing us your lovely school. An extra big thank you to the young person who helped in answering our questions.



Principal, Harrogate College - 16th November 2021


As a principal of a "Good" college, I'm always looking at how I can improve. I've worked in partnership with Rosehill over a number of years, and they've always been incredibly supportive by sharing ideas, processes and strategy, which have helped influence improvements in my provision, thus positively impacting on my students. Rosehill is a welcoming, calm and outstanding school with strong leaders who share a common vision and consistently work together to achieve success for their students. Thank you for your support.


Head Access Auditor for Equality Act Audits - 15th November 2021


This school never ceases to amaze me. The enthusiastic staff, amazing facilitation and wonderful pupils are just the best. Always a pleasure to come here.



New School Governor - 11th November 2021


Fantastic opportunity to see the school and all of the great work done by the young people here at Rosehill. The welcome from all I met have been hugely appreciated.


ECT2 Training Session - 9th November 2021


Thank you so much for hosting today's session for our early career teachers. So much valuable learning to take from our experience at Rosehill. Such a pleasure to hear about the real focus on the children and young people who attend here and how the environment and expert knowledge really supports their positive development.


Awesome session as always for our ECT2's to explore strategies to develop their practice. Thank you for sharing your stories and expertise. We look forward to seeing you again soon.


What an absolute treat for our ECT2's to visit our friends at Rosehill to listen to expertise, share experiences and learn more about strategies to support our children. It was lovely to see you all. It really felt like you'd taken a lot of time to think about what would be most helpful for our ECT's and they really enjoyed the session. Thanks to your team for the warm welcome. 


The Outdoor Adventure Team - 4th November 2021


Sam, Marcus and Maddy from the Adventure Team have had an amazing 4 days. The young people were all absolutely amazing and showed great resilience with all activities. Staff were wonderful!


Patrick Fielding - CEO Nottingham Schools Trust - 30th September 2021


Once again, I was thrilled to be invited to meet with senior staff, teaching and non-teaching staff at the very wonderful Rosehill School. I never feel anything less than very welcome from the minute I arrive to the minute I leave. The office team are to be commended-how lovely are they!!

I enjoyed my time with the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher talking about what it is that makes Rosehill special and some of the things the school wants to change and improve on.

I also enjoyed a tour of the primary school by the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher. Three moments stood out for me; meeting F-who was eloquent and courteous, the dance and movement class-where I saw some of the older Rosehill students totally engaged in activity and the Rebound / PE session taking place in the Main Hall-vibrant and full of energy. Each time we stopped I was introduced to a range of students who were quite simply a joy to meet.

Rosehill presents itself with an air of calm, industry and ambition. Keep it up. Boy oh boy am I looking forward to my next visit.


School Improvements Advisor - 5th October 2021


Thank you to all the staff and pupils for a very positive visit. I was so impressed with the children and young people - they were all working so hard and were so friendly. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!


Parent - Celebration Assembly - 27th July 2021


I'd like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Rosehill for their hard work, passion and the extraordinary effort especially during the pandemic. Well done to all the pupils for how they have coped, and working so hard.


Parent - Celebration Assembly - 27th July 2021


It was lovely to be part of the Celebration Assembly. It's been a trying and difficult year for a lot of us. You've all been amazing teachers helping us the best you can through Covid and Home Learning. I thank you all for the support you have given to my child and I.


Parent - Celebration Assembly - 27th July 2021


Very positive assembly, nice to see all the children doing so well. Keep up the good work! Thanks to all the teachers and staff for all of their hard work over the last year.


SENCO, Nottingham School - 14th July 2021


Cheryl gave me a tour of the school so I could see the setting and how we could adapt our Mainstream School. She gave me resource ideas, timetabling suggestions and strategies for staff. I was grateful for the opportunity and learn from Cheryl's experience and knowledge. What a fabulous school!



Experience Manager, Discovery Education - 15th June 2021


I was really impressed with all the pupils who participated in the Friendship tree video. They showed some good communication skills; and spoke or wrote down their feelings about friendship with confidence and care. The boy in the red t-shirt really stood out as a great narrator and showed such enthusiasm to present throughout the film.


SRE Lead at Nottingham City - 15th June 2021


Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the friendship film for RSE Day.  I particularly like how well the film is presented and how it includes so many different areas of the school. It is wonderful to hear all the views about friendship and to see the art-work you have created. I can’t wait for people to see it on RSE Day so they can appreciate all the great work happening at Rosehill and see how talented the children and young people are, with such great ideas about friendship!


Headteacher of a Specialist College, Harrogate - 14th June 2021


As a Principal of a specialist setting I’m often looking at websites for ideas and information. I wanted to just drop a note to say I think your website is great.

It is very accessible, clearly laid out, attractive and full of relevant and useful information for all stakeholders. I’m a great believer in sharing knowledge for the benefit of the students and your website does it incredibly successfully.


Well done Rosehill, keep up the fantastic life changing work you do.


Chair of Governors - 23rd February 2021


It was an honour to judge the pupil’s e-safety awareness project with Nadia Whitmore MP for Nottingham East.  Each of the different key-stages produced clear, engaging and creative posters that made judging difficult.  Thank you to JK who guided us through the decision-making process and for being such an excellent host and ambassador for the school.



Andy Jenkins - 100 Hearts Organiser - February 2021


As a recently retired head Nottingham City head teacher, please accept and pass on my thanks for everything you are doing for your pupils and community at the moment – Rosehill is a special place.


Parent - 4th December 2020


Today's meeting was great and a lovely way of you showing the wonderful work all of the children have been doing. I cannot ever praise and thank the staff enough for their dedication, warmth and passion they have for each child to succeed. You are more than a credit to us parents. You treat our children with respect and love, and are behind them 100%. Thank you.

Thank you for a wonderful visit and opportunity to meet the pupils and celebrate their wonderful achievements. I always leave Rosehill feeling so positive and proud.


CEO Nottingham Schools Trust - 24th September 2020


I am never disappointed visiting your school. My visit on the 24th September was no exception - an absolute delight. 

I had the good fortune of meeting a range of staff who were welcoming, buoyant and combined and created a tangible buzz about the building. Every member of the staff team I met found the time to stop and engage in conversation which reminds me just how special your school community is.


The woodland walk, primary provision balance room and immersion room will undoubtedly enhance and enrichen the educational experience on offer to your children and young people and reflects your focus on sensory regulation and drive to promote cultural capital.


Thank you for meeting the needs of the children and young people in your care and or providing them with a rich, broad and dynamic educational, social and cultural experience.


Governor - 16th September 2020


The pupils were all so polite and engaging. The staff working incredibly well with Covid-19 Risk Assessments. Well done Rosehill!

I wanted to let you know how well I am doing during lockdown with my studies. I want to wish you all well and thank you for the wonderful job you are all doing.


Governors feedback on the RSE Day Assembly - 25th June 2020


This is the most heart-warming thing I've seen in a long time. Well done to all the staff involved!


Thanks for sharing, this is fantastic! Tried my hardest to learn some of the signing words but was too distracted by the beautiful fur-baby guinea pigs. The teachers have done a brilliant job pulling this together. Great effort and very informative. I'm sure the pupils will enjoy it just as much as I did, if not more.


Cllr Lee - 18th March 2020


I just wanted to send a heartfelt Thank You and Well Done to you, and your teams, for all you are doing during these testing times. Not just as a councillor, but as a St Ann's resident and parent. Please do pass on my huge appreciation to your workmates, you're the beating hearts of our community and city, and I know you'll do all you can, for as long as you safely can. If you think I can do anything at all, please let me know.

Zoolab - 6th February 2020


What an amazing day at Rosehill School, I bought along a few exotic and rainforest animals for the children to meet. The children were exceptional, they listened and followed the rules when handling each animal. They took lots of information on board and had some fantastic animal facts to share.


The staff are lovely, ensuring each child got to see the animals and didn't miss out! Very caring and understanding, we had lots of fun! I would love to come back in the future for another fun animal day!


Parent Governor - 5th February 2020


Words can't describe how pleased we are with our child's progress. In such a short time, he has achieved leaps and bounds, and gone far beyond our expectations. Rosehill has been a saviour for us and we are so so grateful for the support. Thank you so much
