Welcome to the Roche School

Welcome to The Roche School, an independent, co-educational primary school of some 300 pupils near the Wandsworth end of Putney Bridge Road with nursery schools in Frogmore and East Putney.

The Roche School aims by thorough and stimulating teaching to give its pupils a sound and wide-ranging education in a pleasant, lively and homely atmosphere so that when they leave us they are well prepared for the next stage of their schooling.

The classes are small and we are careful to ensure that each child receives the attention and the level of teaching they need in order to make sure progress, so that they can take pride in their developing understanding and in their ability to express themselves effectively both in speech and writing while learning to be patient and persistent in the face of difficulties.

Our pupils encounter a wide range of disciplines in sport, art, music, drama and computing as well as in aspects of science and history so that they can develop their own particular talents and interests. French is taught throughout the School and there is a club to learn Spanish and about Spanish culture. Pupils have regular practice and training in team sports at the nearby grounds between the river and Putney Bridge Road and in addition there are optional clubs in these sports and in swimming, judo, drama, art and chess.ofted3

The children enjoy presenting  the results of their own research into their class’s termly study topic and classes regularly visit museums and sites of particular educational and historical interest.

Each class puts on a play annually in which every child has a distinctive part. Each term there is a concert involving the orchestra, soloists and the junior and senior choirs.

In developing and expressing their own tastes and abilities, our pupils are encouraged  to respect and appreciate  the talents and tastes of others and the School’s buoyant atmosphere is founded on the children’s mutual respect and on their appreciation of their developing understanding and competence.

The School is non-denominational but we seek to give the children some appreciation of the nature and significance of the stories and teachings of the Old and New Testaments and of other religions while respecting and listening to pupils’ particular views.

Do please contact us if you would like to see the School at work, either by appointment or on one of our regular Open Mornings.

From the Headmistress Mrs Vania Adams BA, PGCE, MA

STEM Week – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
