At Rockwood we embrace, celebrate and promote the CORE Values of our sponsor. The four Values: Collaboration; Opportunity; Respect; Excellence inspire and guide us in all our endeavours.

CORE Education Trust was founded in 2015 and its approach is to offer schools and academies bespoke, local solution sponsorship arrangements. The Trust works closely with its leaders to ensure the CORE Values are embodied by the staff and children in its schools and academies.

The Ethos of Rockwood represents the way in which we translate the CORE Values into our own local context.

At Rockwood, the ethos is expressed through our motto, High standards, no excuses. This motto is brought to life through our Academy Standard.


CORE Education Trust is based at 55 St Paul’s Square, Birmingham B3 1QS. Please call 0121 389 2824 to speak to their office.
