Our College

Achievement, Success and Excellence

It really is all those intangible things that make RSFC so successful. You can call it a philosophy or call it a culture or a vision but we just call it the way we do things.

We have a tireless dedication to improving the standards of academic achievement for our students and a passionate commitment to their success through a culture of high expectation and aspiration.

Announcement by the Chair of The Altus Education Partnership

On behalf of the trust, I am pleased to inform everyone that a new principal for the college has been appointed, Richard Ronksley. Richard is now working as a HMI for Ofsted in the FE sector. He was formerly employed at Scarborough and Middlesbrough sixth form colleges. He joins our college on 1st June 2018. As most of you will know Julian Appleyard OBE left us on the 2nd March to take up an appointment as CEO of an academy trust in Yorkshire. We wish him well with his new endeavour and are appreciative of the outstanding work he did for us and the young people in our college. Many of them had their lives transformed by him and our staff. In the interim period until Richard takes up the position, our Senior Vice Principal, Joy Bell will act up as Principal ably supported by our excellent staff. Dame Pamela Coward DBE, Chair of the Trust.
