Students Choose Samaritans as College Charity 2017-18
Each year, the Student Council draws up a shortlist of charities, and a whole school vote is then held to decide which charity the College will raise money for for the duration of that academic year.
We are delighted to confirm that the College charity has been chosen for 2017-2018: Samaritans.
Samaritans is a charity aimed at providing emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide, often through their telephone helpline: 116 123.
Robertsbridge Awarded Geography Quality Mark
We are delighted to announce that - following much hard work by Mrs Richardson, our Subject Leader for Geography - the college has recently been awarded the Secondary Geography Quality Mark (SGQM) by the Geographical Association.
The SGQM is a prestigious award which recognises quality and progress in geography leadership, curriculum development and learning and teaching in schools. Award winners undergo a rigorous moderation process, and the team of assessors were hugely impressed by the manner in which the college is continuing to embrace new and innovative approaches to teaching geography.
The SGQM recognises student attainment, progress and achievement in geographical knowledge, understanding, values and skills, and sets expectations about the quality of teaching in geography. It promotes effective subject leadership and management, helping subject leaders raise the standards of geography in their schools.
