At Dean Trust Rose Bridge we pride ourselves on the additional opportunities we provide for our pupils beyond their excellent academic experience in lessons. Learning inside the classroom is the key to success, but we also believe that so much more can be learnt beyond the classroom. Enrichment experiences, educational visits and extra-curricular opportunities are integral to the experiences of pupils, and their personal development.
Our aim is for every pupil to experience at least one form of additional enrichment. We believe that this helps to support the development of cultural capital and thus improve the life chances of all pupils.
As a school, we look to empower our young people to be citizens of the future. This means developing meaningful leadership opportunities for them. At Dean Trust Rose Bridge, we are proud of the roles and responsibilities that our pupils take on, and look to support all pupils in their leadership journey. Some examples of our leadership opportunities are below:
Our pupils shape what we do as a school and, through their positions of leadership, they have had a positive impact on our school. From introducing eco-friendly recycling measures to changes in our uniform, we empower pupils to have a positive impact on their educational experience.
Pupils have the possibility of joining the Pupil Parliament every January. This runs for an academic year. Form Representatives are elected, and will contribute to one of the DTRB leadership committees. These are ran by a member of the senior leadership team. Prefects are chosen from an application process every academic year.
Dean Trust Rose Bridge is partnered with the Manchester United Foundation. The Manchester United Foundation is a charitable organisation that works with us to deliver motivational and inspiring projects to our pupils, with the goal of helping them reach their full potential. You can find out more about the Manchester United Foundation and its work at www.mufoundation.org.
