Welcome to The John Roan School
I am proud to welcome you to The John Roan School. We are an ambitious community that is committed to working hard and raising achievement for everyone. With the highest expectations for all of our students, our vision is for students to be the best that they can be, and we know that our role is to provide them with the platform to achieve this.
We pledge to provide a rich, broad and varied education such that all students are able to make excellent progress whatever their starting points. In the seven years that students grow and develop with the school, they will experience a diverse curriculum and enrichment programme that stretches them academically and socially and which has character development at its heart.
The John Roan School is an inclusive community with a strong commitment to providing the necessary multi-agency support to ensure that all of our students and their families are able to thrive. Our provision for special educational needs is excellent and includes a designated specialist provision for 16 students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Our exciting enrichment programme includes the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and Debate Mate, as well as the opportunity for every student to stay at the Hope Memorial Centre in Braithwaite at least once in their time at the school. Our Music provision is well supported by The John Roan Foundation and enables us to provide music tuition to over 200 students each year. Sport at the school is enhanced by the extensive school playing fields in Kidbrooke.
