We believe that education should be a positive and transformational experience, regardless of ability or background. We are fully committed to raising achievement for everyone and have the highest expectations of all our students in every aspect of school life. Our vision is for students to be the best that they can be, and our role is to provide them with the platform to achieve this.


At The John Roan School, we pledge to provide a rich, broad and varied education such that all students are able to make excellent progress whatever their starting points. In the seven years that students grow and develop with the school, they will experience a diverse curriculum and enrichment programme that stretches them academically and socially.


We have a split site, with a new, state-of-the-art building at Westcombe Park and a fully redeveloped facility at Maze Hill, giving our students access to one of the UK’s most innovative and flexible learning environments.


Maze Hill is dedicated to Years 7 and 8 so that they can adapt to secondary school life without needing to share the area with older students. Beyond the two main sites, the school owns ‘Braithwaite’, an activity centre in the Lake District. Built on 40 acres of land, students can access the beauty of spectacular countryside and experience the challenge and excitement of outdoor life.
