The Rowans School
Wimbledon I 125 Pupils I 3-7 years co-educational
The Rowans School offers an excellent educational experience to both boys and girls aged between 3 and 7. Situated in a quiet road in Wimbledon, with beautiful grounds and large landscaped gardens.
The Rowans prides itself in providing a nurturing and welcoming start to school life, especially during those early years when key social skills and attitudes are acquired and developed for life. We have a long-standing reputation for academic and all-round excellence and every teacher takes great pride in the achievements of each child.
Our priority is the well-being and happiness of each child. A child’s sense of security, belonging and being valued is paramount to their success. We celebrate our culturally diverse community, allowing the children to develop a strong sense of self and also develop the attitudes to be outward looking both locally and globally. Our aim is to inspire each child to achieve their full potential and to prepare them to meet the challenges that they will experience at the next stage of their education with confidence and high self-esteem. This is achieved within a stimulating, creative, happy, caring and respectful environment where children are encouraged and motivated to try new challenges.
Our curriculum is designed to build strong and secure academic foundations and enhance your child’s natural curiosity. The recognition that children learn best through play and discovery underpins the education in the Early Years. Our Kindergarten class begins a bespoke programme which continues through the Reception year. This lays the foundations for learning and allows your child to develop the fundamental skills and knowledge necessary for the more formalised teaching and learning methods that take place as they move through the School. We aim to achieve the highest academic prospects for each child through well-structured teaching and learning techniques. Our curriculum not only ensures that the children are well prepared academically for the entry requirements to their next school at the age of 7+, but that they have also had the breadth of experience to equip them a love of learning and many life skills to take forward with them.

“The Rowans is a very special place. The School has the magical combination of offering a strong academic grounding in an extraordinary, nurturing environment that brings out the best in a child.

Registrations are accepted from birth, as soon as the Birth Certificate is available. There are a limited number of places on offer, so parents are advised to complete the Registration Form as soon as possible – click here.
Kindergarten places are allocated on a ‘first come, first served basis’ where we look at the number of days between the date of birth and the date of registration with us. The Rowans is co-educational, so we aim to maintain a good balance of girls and boys where possible.
We have an additional intake at Reception. Selection for places in classes from Reception upwards is based on a child’s potential to thrive in our school environment, which is established through an assessment session, as well as a report from their nursery or current school.
Occasional places arise from time to time in the older year groups. Parents should contact the School Office for current details of availability.
In normal times, we would warmly invite you to meet the Head and have a tour of the School at one of the weekly show-rounds. However, due to present Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to welcome visitors to the school. If you are interested in a tour of the School please email the registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a tour for a later date or, if your enquiry is for a place in the coming terms, we will be able to offer you a video call with the Head. You can also gain a flavour of life at the School by visiting our website to view our School video and virtual tour.
