We pledge to provide a rich, broad and varied education such that all students are able to make excellent progress whatever their starting points.
Our founder, John Roan, bequeathed his estate to educate the children of Greenwich. The principles he instilled in the school remain today; every child is entitled to be educated in inclusive, stimulating and rewarding surroundings. The Trustees of The John Roan Foundation continue to ensure that his legacy delivers unique opportunities to our students.
United Learning schools are committed to providing excellent education through which all pupils are able to progress, achieve, and go on to succeed in life. We seek to improve the life chances of all the children and young people we serve and make it our mission to bring out ‘the best in everyone’ – students, staff, parents and the wider community.
Life at The John Roan School is structured to provide a richly diverse range of experiences such that all of our students are able to reach their potential both whilst at school and in their adult lives. 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.
