Rosehill Methodist Community School opened in September 2003. It was built on the site of the offices of Ladysmith Barracks. Rosehill was built to replace Hurst Infant School and Hurst Methodist Junior School. The School opened in a brand new building designed to meet the needs of children in the 21st Century. We are a two form entry school with a maximum of 60 children in each year group, apart from Reception which has three classes and Year 1 which has 90 children overall.
The school caters for pupils from 3 to 11 years of age, having a 26 place nursery which offers sessions each morning and each afternoon. Part of our building also houses a Children’s Centre and Rosebuds private Nursery with which we have close links. The school is a Methodist School and has close links to the Methodist Church. We are very lucky to have our own School Chaplain, Rev Julie Coates, who visits school regularly and supports the school community in a variety of ways. The school has excellent facilities including a Media Room with Green Screen and video editing capabilities, a computerised The Foundation Stage and KS1 pupils have access to a purpose built outdoor play area, where they can develop their gross motor skills through use of the tricycles, climbing frames and a range of outdoor equipment. The sporting facilities are extensive with a flood-lit all weather pitch, extensive fields and a tennis court. The grounds are managed by a Sports Trust and when not being used by the school are available for community use. A forest school is also being developed on our grounds.
