Welcome to The John Roan School

At The John Roan School we are relentless in our pursuit of excellence.

We aim to ignite ambition in every student through teaching that empowers and inspires; a calm and disruption-free learning environment; and a strong character education programme.

We are proud to be ambitious as well as inclusive, setting high expectations of everyone in the school community, providing a learning environment in which students can flourish and achieve success from year 7 right through to year 13.

As part of the United Learning group of schools, we can provide more for both staff and students than any single school could offer alone. Uniquely, our group includes schools in both the public and the private sectors, creating benefits for all the schools involved. Working together, we make it our mission to bring out 'the best in everyone' – students, staff, parents and the wider community.

We develop the whole person, not just the mind. Our students have opportunities to lead and to serve their local community.  Sports, music and the arts are key components of our curriculum. We are extremely proud to have been awarded the School of Character Kitemark in 2021.
