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. Email email@example.com to book your individual nursery tour.
