How to Apply
The Roche School is a non-selective primary school,
welcoming boys and girls from a range of backgrounds.
Application forms can be obtained by contacting Mrs Glenis Clark in the Admissions Department by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 020 8877 0823.
Pupils generally begin in the Reception class in the September after their 4th birthday and this is the main entry point to The Roche School. Application forms are accepted in order of date of registration and a written confirmation of receipt will be sent. Places are confirmed a year in advance with the payment of the first part of a non-refundable deposit, the second part is due in the January prior to the September start. This deposit will be used in part payment for the child’s final term at the school, a full term’s notice in writing having been received by the first day of that final term. Later admissions for the year will be asked to pay the full deposit in one single payment.
Children in either our Keswick House or Wandsworth Nurseries will automatically be offered a place in the appropriate Reception Year.
For entry other than at the beginning of the Reception Year please contact the admissions department. Should there be the possibility of a place we would ask for a copy of a recent school report along with any other available information concerning the child’s aptitude and education levels. A taster day can then be arranged prior to the offer of a place. On this day the candidates are assessed in reading, writing and number work. We look for potential as much as knowledge since our adaptable teaching method allows all our pupils to make good progress. Should we be able to offer a place a non-refundable deposit will then be payable. This deposit will be used in part payment for the child’s final term at The Roche School a full term’s notice in writing having been received by the first day of that final term.
An information pack will be given with all details needed for a smooth introduction to school.
New families are invited to our Festive Fair and Summer Fete. At the end of the summer term children are asked to join us to spend some time with their prospective teachers and meet their new classmates. The Reception teachers will also visit their prospective pupils in their present nursery setting (if appropriate).
There are social evenings for parents at the beginning of the Autumn Term (after your child starts) and many social events for both children and parents throughout the year. A dynamic parent association - FORS - is committed to welcome and involving all parents.
