Hi Dan Welcome to the forum
Anything that grows to that height quickly is going to continue to grow at a fast rate and require a lot of maintenance - professional hedge trimming twice a year is expensive or doing it yourself requires ladders and good quality equipment as well as your time.
A solid hedge of that height may well cast a lot of shade into your garden (depending on the aspect) and could make being in your garden feel like being in a green box.
Our solution has been to have two ft trellis panels fitted above the fence - we are growing clematis and honeysuckles on them, but roses would do as well and provide an element of increased security as well.
