What the school says...

Founded in 1832, Rose Hill is one of the oldest Prep Schools in the country and yet it is housed in a modern building, having moved to its present site in 1966. In the past three years alone, the School has benefited from an all-weather astro pitch, a new 220 seat theatre and state-of-the-art technology, music and art departments.

The most recent inspection report at the end of 2013 rated the school as 'excellent in all areas'. This is reflected in pupil registration, with waiting lists for each year group from Kindergarten to Year 8.

The School has a solid reputation locally and attracts a high calibre of specialist teaching staff. Class sizes are small, with an average of 16 children per class in pre-prep and 18 in prep school.

Rose Hill has very strong relationships with senior schools and a large number of pupils achieve places at their first choice of secondary schools. In the past five years alone, over 40 scholarships have been won to some of the best secondary schools in the south east. The School also has an enviable record of success in the Kent 11+ assessments for local Grammar Schools.

Special Education Needs

The learning skills department at Rose Hill School is made up of a dedicated and experienced team of SEN professionals who work closely with the whole school to ensure that every child reaches their potential by removing barriers to learning. The head of learning skills is full-time and is responsible for the provision of extra support available to children with specific learning difficulties. The learning skills team adheres to our Rose Hill SEND policy which has been carefully written in line with the SEND Code of Practice 0 to 25 years. We follow the Assess-Plan-Do-Review (APDR) method of approach focusing on the three waves of intervention. Each individual learning plan is carefully tailored to ensure that every child accesses the curriculum and extra support is carefully structured to meet the needs of the individuals in our care. Ultimately the learning environment we aim to provide within Rose Hill is one in which every child matters and where the welfare and well being of every child is paramount.
