Roding Valley High School is a secondary school in Loughton, Essex, founded in 1989[1] by the merger of three schools.

School formation[edit]

Its site formerly housed Loughton County High School for Girls, and the other two schools were Buckhurst Hill County High School (for boys) and Epping Forest High School (itself formerly the Lucton school).[2][3]

21st century[edit]

The school was awarded "Healthy School" status in 2007. The school has more than 1,200 students.[4] and has been rated Good with Outstanding Features in the latest Ofsted report.[5][6]

In September 2015 the school opened the Epping Forest Sixth Form which is listed for 16-18's within the school.

Staff[edit]

On the 28th of March 2017 it was announced that the headteacher, Mr. James Luck, had resigned via an email to the parents from the chair of governors, Paul Wershof.[7] Sharon Jenner remains Head of School in the interim until a permanent Headteacher is in place, with Mr. Paul Banks being the Executive Head. Mr. James Luck joined the school in 2014.[8] He replaced Mr. Paul Banks who left the school after 5 years.[9] Prior to Mr. Paul Banks, the head teacher was Mr. Geoff Mangan who was in the post for many years.
