The Roche School is a vibrant, aspirational, family-run nursery and primary school in South West London. It is committed to developing pupils intellectually, creatively and in sporting terms, within the context of a warm and friendly culture.

Core subjects are grouped according to focus so that pupils are challenged appropriately and everyone receives a high level of attention. The school seeks continually to build on its fine academic reputation which sees children placed at a wide range of top London schools after the 11+ examinations, with many achieving scholarships.

Parents favour local secondary schools. King’s College Wimbledon, Wimbledon High, Dulwich College, Tiffin, Hampton and Whitgift feature prominently.

The new Year 6 Centre ensures that pupils make the move to senior school with the requisite academic, social and emotional strength.

The Roche School is delighted to be offering an additional Spanish Bilingual Stream class in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, alongside the respected provision of their traditional English Reception class. Mornings in the Spanish Bilingual Stream consist of the same high-quality curriculum in English as the English Reception. Afternoons involve English curriculum-based lessons delivered in Spanish by a qualified teacher with in-depth Spanish fluency. The host of specialist teachers in art, music and sport provide further enrichment to the children's learning.

The school has a strong focus on personal happiness and respect for oneself and others. It is values-based, using The Roche Approach as a cohesive strategy in this respect. There is a commitment to diversity and to the significance of equal opportunities, with pupils accessing non-gender bias initiatives in sport, growth mindset programmes and Philosophy 4 Children. Expressive arts are strong and the emphasis on holistic development reaps dividends in terms of confidence and individuality.
