important Notice: 10th August 2018
Dear parent or guardian,
You may have seen a story in today’s Rye & Battle Observer relating to the presence of asbestos in our school.
I wanted to contact you directly to reassure you that the school is safe and that this story, which is based on the newspaper’s interpretation of a highly complex technical report, is not fair and accurate.
Like many older school buildings in East Sussex, there is some asbestos in some areas of the building, however this is safely contained and managed in such a way that it does not present a risk to children or staff.
Our schools asbestos management is managed by an accredited specialist, which carries out surveys and monitoring of asbestos on behalf of East Sussex County Council. All asbestos materials are thoroughly risk-assessed for the material type, location and condition and are either removed or safely encapsulated as appropriate.
The safety of children is our primary concern and neither we, nor the county council would put this at risk. Our school is safe for your children.
Enjoy the Summer Break!
We are now closed to students for the summer break. As a reminder we start back for students on Thursday 6th September 2018.
An Outstanding Summer Music Show!
On Thursday 12th July 2018 Robertsbridge Community College produced their summer music show.
It was an incredible experience for both students and family members. The show consisted of solo performances, duets and bands, producing a mixed bag of highly talented individuals.
The students involved have worked tremendously hard over the past few months in order for the show to happen and Mr Harding is proud of every single one of them!

Further information will be provided, nearer the time, on this page:
Living Garden 'Springs' to Life!
Over Easter, all of the plants in the RCC Living Garden poly-tunnel have taken on a life of their own and some students have now affectionately renamed it “The Jungle!” We now have mustard plants in excess of eight-feet high and the bees love the flowers.
We have now reached the time of year when we can get seed sowing properly and are now preparing the outside beds, digging them over and applying compost ready for the new growing season. The garden is now open to all students at lunch time and afterschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
We will also be organising some volunteer weekends in the near future for parents, families and community members to come down and lend a hand, get some exercise and meet like-minded gardening people (no previous gardening experience is necessary!)
If you would like to volunteer please contact Mrs Linch (llinch[at]robertsbridge.org.uk) for information on dates and times or keep an eye on the Living Garden Facebook (rcclivinggarden)and Twitter (@rcclivinggarden) pages for more regular updates as we gear up for the new growing season!
