Lower School

The Lower School is a vibrant, nurturing and busy school that encourages pupils to thrive in an atmosphere that is caring, ambitious and fun. Through a child-centred approach to learning and a dedicated team of staff, all pupils achieve their best while developing a passion to discover and learn.

Upon entering our independent school you will be welcomed by confident, respectful and thoughtful pupils and feel our warm family ethos. At the heart of what we do is our focus on pastoral care. Through our nurturing approach, all pupils feel that they have the support and encouragement to aspire to fulfil their ambitions and self-made targets.

Why Rookwood Private School?

Pupils experience a broad and balanced curriculum and a wide range of extra-curricular activities that help them to develop their skills and interests. Our ambition within the Lower School is to develop young people with a passion for learning who are able to work both collaboratively and independently. We do this by providing a creative and supportive environment that allows them to stretch themselves and take risks.

Our pupils are kept extremely busy during their time in the Lower School through a multitude of experiences including residential trips, school productions, LAMDA examinations, Tea Concerts, weekly fixtures against local schools, as well as community and charity projects.

The Lower School offers so much more than just an education. I would be delighted to welcome you and your child to experience our warm and inspiring atmosphere for yourselves.
