Year 5 enjoyed a fantastique trip to France this year, and they had the most amazing time! They stayed in the Chateau d’Ebblinghem near Boulogne, immersing themselves in French culture over three days, and enthusiastically practising the language at every opportunity. First stop after the ferry ride was Nausicaa Sealife Museum, the biggest aquarium in Europe. […]
Who We Are
The Roche School is an independent family owned, co-educational, nursery and primary school offering children a wide range of academic, creative and sporting opportunities in a family-orientated environment on the boundary of Putney and Wandsworth.
Our curriculum is taught by inspiring, committed teaching staff enabling pupils to fully achieve their potential whilst they are with us. Attitudes to learning are important too – we encourage pupils to enjoy challenge, working together and independently. In academic subjects, we run small classes which are attentive to matters of pace and understanding and our pupils go on to achieve places at top London day schools. We are committed to being a school comprising a diverse range of families and pupils who enjoy the dynamic culture at the school.
We are proud of our strong academic record and encourage pupils to excel.
The atmosphere of the school is happy and polite with the pastoral system emphasising the importance of kindness and respect for others.
My child said, "My school feels like a home to me" and that's all I need to hear as a parent.

Outstanding Nursery Practice
“We were elated to receive an Outstanding Ofsted judgement in the March 2022 inspection at Keswick House Nursery. With Early Years reforms in place, staff training and sharing good practice with our Wandsworth Early Years team were high on the agenda. We took on many positive changes from the pandemic and, along with strong parent partnerships, our ambitious curriculum was maintained, with the children’s wellbeing and happiness at the heart of our tailormade educational programme. Many congratulations and thanks to our Early Years team,” Gabriella Emery, Head of Roche Nursery Schools.

The Great Roche School Lunch
For many parents, the prospect of their 11-year-old setting off to secondary school can bring mixed feelings. It’s exciting to be moving on with such great opportunities unfolding but there is so much to navigate! Timetables, mobile phones, bags, buses and friendships are all part of this rite of passage. When it works well, the […]
The Year 5s did us so proud at the Newland House netball tournament this week by winning all ten of their games against some very tough competition. They scored a massive 38 goals in total, only letting seven goals slip! They were extremely pleased to win a shield and medals for their hard work. Here’s […]
“The way the school enriched and nourished my daughter's soul and prepared her for the next part of her journey to adulthood, is beyond words. The Roche school is like an oasis of love and you can feel it the moment you walk through the door. If you are fortunate enough to get your child into that school you will transform the outcome of their lives no matter what walk of life you come from. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” Google 5 Star Review
"I cannot recommend The Roche highly enough, and we are so grateful that we made the decision to send our children to the school. As well as giving the children a superb start to their educational career, along with a wonderful opportunity to be involved in a vast variety of co-curricular activities and exciting trips, the Roche has made the start of their schooling such a positive and joyful one - both children really look forward to going to school every day, and have always felt incredibly supported and happy there. In short, it is a school that absolutely embodies its ethos of kindness and respect."
"Without your guidance and support [these results] would not have been possible. I owe you all the credit for what he is today. Thanks to you all teachers for all the help and support."
"We want to thank you again for all the hard work The Roche has put into getting him there – we honestly feel that he couldn’t have done any better and his teachers must take a large amount of the credit for that!"
"I would absolutely recommend the school. It is a fantastic place and it’s all about producing happy, well-rounded children. The exits to secondary schools are impressive."
"The Roche School is like a family. The children are taught good manners but are still allowed to be themselves. They are well cared for and encouraged to enjoy school life."
"This is one of the best schools I have ever come across. The staff take individual care of each child, pushing them to progress rather than allowing them to be average. It taught me how my children are capable of much more than average. They have become responsible for their own work – all I do is remind them and they do the rest."
"Transition to secondary - you have really made what could have been quite a stressful process an incredibly positive and confidence building experience for Lara for which we are grateful." Mrs C.
