Responsible, caring and secure – preparing you for your future
Dear Parents and Carers,
Many thanks for taking the time to visit our website.
We are a one form entry, Voluntary Aided School located in the heart of Roehampton since 1828. Our vision is to provide a high quality education for all our children, preparing them with skills for life and encouraging them to be well rounded individuals who are respectful, kind and tolerant of others.
Currently, we have 225 children on roll, from 3 to 11, Nursery to Year 6. Our staff are a team of experienced and passionate people who care about unlocking children’s potential and encouraging them to excel in all that they do. With a strong Christian ethos at the centre of our core, we are committed to providing a secure, happy and calm environment in which all children are able to thrive socially, emotionally and academically. Every child matters and our caring philosophy is at the heart of everything we do.
We have a very committed Governing board who play an active role in the life of the school and excellent relationships with the team clergy at our local church ‘Holy Trinity’. Although we are a church school we welcome children from all world faiths and currently have children from 40 different counties attending the school. This diversity is what makes Roehampton Church School the very special place it is.
Our Year 6 pupils in the 2017/18 academic year achieved the third highest SATs marks in Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation within the borough of Wandsworth. Last year, our Year 6 pupils outperformed national attainment averages in Writing and Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation. Our Year 2 pupils outperformed the national figures in reading, writing and maths in 2017. In addition to our academic performance in the national tests our gifted and talented programmes for Sports and Maths give our pupils enormous opportunities to compete with other schools both in and outside of the borough. Year 5 pupils achieve high awards every year in the National ‘Game of 24’ KS2 tournament. The RCS Netball team achieve numerous medal each year in various borough competitions, having won gold on several previous occasions. Moreover, we had children who had gained full scholarship over varies schools over the last few years.
Finally, we update our website regularly, which aims to provide the latest essential information about our school community. If however you would like to speak to us to find out more about our school or enquiry about a place for your child then please contact our school office.
