How to apply

IMG_4069 RRRegistration forms

Parents should complete the form and return it with a £75 (£20 each for two siblings or more) administration fee. We are happy to accept applications for children of all primary school ages and we need any available information about the child’s aptitude and educational levels. Parents reserve the place they have been offered by making a non-refundable payment of the first instalment of the deposit. This should be done within 21 days of the offer’s date unless we write otherwise. Forms are available by emailing or telephoning the Admissions Secretary at


A non-refundable deposit of one term’s fee must be paid to secure a place. For offers of a place in the Reception Year, the deposit is due in two instalments; the first part in the September prior to the academic year the child starts, and the second part two terms before the child starts. The total deposit equals a full term’s fees. For children in other years the deposit tends to be paid in one instalment. Once the child has started at The Roche School, the deposit paid covers the final term’s fees provided that the school office has received written notice of the intention to withdraw the child from the school on or before the first day of that final term.

Occasional places

Children interested in gaining a place in Years 1 to 6 are invited to spend a morning or a full day with their prospective classes so that they can participate in the lessons, meet the teachers, and ascertain their educational level. School reports are required prior to their visit.

Settling in

In the summer term before the children are due to start, they can spend a morning at the school to meet the teacher and their future classmates. Parents receive an information pack explaining the health charter, arrangements for communication between parents and teachers, the uniform, dates for the coming year, the Early Years Grant (where applicable) and a list of children in the year group for parents who wish to get in touch with each other. There is also a social evening for parents and teachers during the autumn term.

We are always happy to answer any questions parents may have. Please feel free to contact the school at

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.
