At RSFC our central purpose is to help our students realise their academic potential. We believe every young person can succeed and we devote ourselves to improving student achievement, through high-quality teaching and student support. Our young people are challenged to achieve through high expectations within a "you can do it culture". We aim at all times to build aspiration, to inspire and to motivate our students so they have the opportunity for greater choice in life.
We aim to be the sixth form college of choice for the young people of the Borough of Rochdale and aim to develop confident and articulate students, respectful and respected, capable of independent and critical thought and appropriately prepared for higher-level achievement.
What makes Rochdale Sixth Form College outstanding?
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.
We embrace diversity and are strongly committed to equality of opportunity for students, staff, their friends, families and the wider community to create a real sense of belonging and integration.
The values of honesty and fairness lie right at the heart of RSFC life. We are committed to conducting ourselves with openness, trust and respect for the individual in everything we do.
Unless something is fun it’s simply not worth doing. That’s why, above all, at RSFC we strive to create a fun environment in which the process of learning is not just rewarding but enjoyable too. In fact, we want the experience to be a positive one for our students in every respect, through instilling a passion and enthusiasm for their subjects, a thirst for learning, a burning desire to achieve their academic potential and career goals. We also aim to develop their self esteem, confidence, emotional resilience, compassion, generosity of spirit and a boundless enthusiasm for taking on and overcoming all the challenges life brings.
