Welcome to Rookhope!
Our teacher is Miss Woods and our HLTA is Mrs Pitchford. On Wednesday afternoons, Mr Harrison teaches us whilst Miss Woods is planning for next week. During the first part of the week, we are taught in groups which change depending on the subject being taught. This means that staff can plan more effectively for our next steps for learning.
You can find our more about what we are learning by visiting the Curriculum section of our website.
You may need a product like Adobe Reader (free download) to view our PDF documents on our website.
