I have two children at The Roche - one now in year 4 and the other in year 1. The youngest went to the nursery at the main school site for a year before reception and we couldn't have been happier. The curriculum is varied and stimulating and he loved it so much we had to drag him away from nursery every day! The nursery and the school provides a unique, warm and caring environment, where your child will be encouraged and supported in their development at every stage. The early years teachers in nursery and reception are fantastic and I found that my youngest was much better prepared for transition to reception in the main school, than my daughter, who did not go there.
Further up the school, I have been very impressed with the individual attention and approach to each child's progress and development and the careful monitoring of each child, with many going on to top schools. The school is non selective and art, music, drama and sport are very strong, alongside the academic subjects, as well as plenty of extra curricular clubs and activities - it really does cater for all.
I would go with your instinct and how you felt about it - if it felt like the right place for your child and for your family, you will most probably be right! We certainly haven't regretted our choice for a second.
