It is located in the Province of Sondrio, close to the Swiss border north of Lake Como. It is the second year that we have chosen Madesimo because of its excellent facilities. The […]
Who We Are
My child said, "My school feels like a home to me" and that's all I need to hear as a parent.
The Roche School is an independent, co-educational, 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 proud of our strong academic record and encourage pupils to excel.
The atmosphere of the school is happy and polite with the pastoral system emphasizing the importance of kindness and respect for others.

The Great Roche School Lunch
“The role of dance at The Roche School is twofold: to develop children’s physical, social and artistic skills, and also to support them in their learning of curriculum subjects. The trip to the Museum of London to study the Great Fire of London is an example. The children proved very knowledgeable about the facts surrounding the event when I […]
The 3rd Roche School Girls’ Football Festival took place on Friday 15th March 2019 in Wandsworth Park. Organised by Miss Allana and her Ace Development Academy, it was a fantastic afternoon with 140 girls from public and state schools taking part. “My idea is to create an event that increases participation […]
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.
