Rooks Heath College (formerly known as Rooks Heath High School) is a state secondary school with a Sixth Form, in South Harrow in the London Borough of Harrow. It is a mixed comprehensive school serving culturally and socially diverse community in South Harrow. The school currently has around 300 pupils in each year group consisting of years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.

History

Roxeth Manor Secondary Modern School opened on the site in Eastcote Lane in the 1930s, next to the primary school. Additional buildings were added in the 1960s. The secondary school was renamed Rooks Heath in September 1974 when the London Borough of Harrow adopted the comprehensive system of education. The school gained specialist status as an Business and Enterprise College, before converting to academy status in August 2011.[1]
