A Warm Welcome to The John Roan School

With immense pleasure, I welcome you to The John Roan School, a place where our shared value of PRIDE consistently brings out the best in every individual.

At our school, students have their ambitions kindled through inspirational teaching, set within a diverse and encompassing curriculum. This curriculum is underpinned by a robust character education programme.

Our unwavering commitment to excellence sees us holding high aspirations for each student and staff member, consistently drawing out their best. Inclusivity is central to our ethos; we warmly welcome students of all backgrounds, faiths, and abilities. Our environment consistently pushes students beyond their perceived limits, encouraging them to strive for excellence in all endeavours.

The curriculum at The John Roan equips pupils to both understand and shape the world they inhabit while achieving commendable academic results. Our deep appreciation for literacy and the mastery of language characterises our educational approach. We expose our pupils to a vast array of words each year through our comprehensive reading initiative, thus broadening their linguistic horizons. Embracing the latest technologies, we equip our students with Chromebooks to enhance learning both at school and at home.

We don’t merely focus on academics; our aim is to nurture well-rounded individuals. Pupils are provided with myriad opportunities to lead and serve within their communities. Sport, music, and the arts play an integral role in our curriculum. For our outstanding learners, we offer enriched learning experiences and bespoke advice for those considering Oxbridge and other competitive university admissions.

Thanks to the John Roan Foundation, our students benefit from sprawling playing fields, a specialised outdoor education centre, an exhaustive Sixth Form Scholarship Programme, complimentary music lessons, and more. Our tight-knit bond with the award-winning Parent-Teacher Association, the JRSA, epitomises our community spirit.

Lastly, our devoted Inclusion Team, in conjunction with specialists at the Centre for Autism, ensures that tailored learning, training, and support are available as and when required.
