Rossington All Saints became an academy on 26 April 2011 and replaced Rossington All Saints (CE) School – A Sports College. The academy is sponsored by Delta Academy Trust and retains its Christian character as a designated church school with the academy and Trust working in partnership with the Diocese of Sheffield. In May 2013 the academy received an OFSTED Section 5 Inspection and was graded as ‘good’ for overall effectiveness with a judgment of ‘outstanding’ for leadership and management. The academy received a short inspection in July 2017 that confirmed that the academy remained ‘good’.
The academy is a smaller than average school that has achieved some recent success in increasing its roll, outside of its catchment, both in the main school and sixth form. There are currently 785 students on roll (including 6th form).
Rossington is a former mining community that is geographically isolated. The majority of students live in areas containing significant pockets of deprivation characterised by high unemployment, an inadequate employment base, low average income levels, rundown housing estates, poor health and a degraded urban environment.
