What The Good Schools Guide says..
‘If Enid Blyton was still around, Saint Ronan’s would be exactly the sort of school she would be writing about. We are buying a truly magical childhood experience … They talk of things being done in a Saint Ronan’s way,...
What the school says...
Saint Ronans was founded in 1883 and is set in the 250 acre Tongswood estate. Children, teachers and parents are attracted to the school for its endearing family ethos, its old fashioned charm as well as its modern outlook. We aim to blend the best of 'ancient and modern'. Investment in the last five years has seen the opening of a new Nursery, Pre Prep, Music School, Art studio, Sports Hall, DT Department and School Farm. ...Read more
Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Since 2003, Mr William Trelawny-Vernon (40s). Very much a joint enterprise with wife Emma (she's the Trelawny, he’s the Vernon) – who is both registrar and head of history. Known as Mr and Mrs TV to pupils and parents alike. The couple met at Exeter, where Mr TV read biology. Previously at Stowe School for 12 years, including posts as a biology teacher and seven years as housemaster of Chatham House. ‘Universally loved’, according to parents.
Special Education Needs
Saint Ronan's is justly proud of its academic record. We believe that we should, and do, cater for the educational needs and aspirations of the brightest children; but we believe also that those who have any academic problems and weaknesses should be enabled to deal with the challenges of the mainstream academic programme. To the latter end, we have a team of three specialist SEN teachers, who assess any children who are encountering difficulties within their class and, if necessary, refer them to an Educational Psychologist for a formal diagnosis of any specific learning difficulty. Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, and dyscalculia are well-catered for. The school SENCO liaises with parents on a regular basis and, if it is felt necessary, and in agreement with the parents, individual tuition can be arranged with one of the specialist SEN teachers. All Pre-prep classes have their own learning support assistant, to assist with those children who are less able, and group work is carried out on a weekly basis, under the supervision of the SENCO for such children.
