“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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Open Morning September 21st 2019
It is an Open Morning tradition at The Roche School that our pupils act as guides for prospective parents to show them our premises and facilities. It also enables our visitors to ask questions about daily life at the school directly to our pupils.
The first Open Morning of the school year takes place on a Saturday and another tradition is for former pupils to come back and act as guides for this event. It is a sign of affection that these pupils have for their former school, that so many of them volunteer. A big thank you for all of the Years 7, 8 and 9 pupils who so expertly acted as guides on our recent Saturday Open Morning.
