The Roche School is a family-owned preparatory school for children aged 2-11. It is an independent coeducational school, founded in 1983 as Mrs Roche’s Coaching Establishment in West Kensington. The Roche School’s original focus on “thorough teaching in a homely environment” caused the original class of 5 pupils to increase rapidly in popularity. The School maintains what they call The Roche Approach, which stands for Respect, Open-mindedness, Compassion, Humour and Effort. This underpins the school values.

Early Years classes enjoy teaching from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. In Nursery, Roche utilises an integrated approach of Montessori and the EYFS Curriculum to create a holistic approach to nursery students’ first steps into education. Early Years pupils enjoy specialist teaching in Sports and Music, along with the Forest School. Beyond the Early Years, students at Roche follow the National Curriculum, and the school works towards the ISEB (Independent Schools Examination Board) syllabus in preparation for the 11+ examinations. Leavers predominantly progress (and receive scholarships) to prestigious British schools such as Dulwich College, Emanuel and Whitgift (among others).

Roche offers over 50 extracurricular activities after school, including Astrophysics, Ballet and Cricket. Students benefit from facilities such as an outdoor area, sports hall, and gymnastics & dance studio, and two off-site sports facilities in addition. Roche boasts a library – from where their emphasis on reading is based – a specialist art room, and computing suites.
