Hic Feliciter Laboramus - Here We Work Happily.
Rowan is a dynamic, happy, independent girls day school, which prepares pupils (aged 2-11) for the challenges they will face in life, helping them to develop compassion, respect and a life-long love of learning. We value all our girls as individuals and attach great importance to the quality of teaching and learning that is at the very heart of our philosophy on education.
When I first joined Rowan, I often heard the phrase, ‘once a Rowan girl, always a Rowan girl’. To me this is a girl who is keen to challenge herself, takes pride in her work, makes lifelong friends and has the confidence to have a go.
At Rowan, we encourage individuality in an environment which supports every girl and provides opportunities for children to thrive. Our Year 6 girls move on to a wide range of outstanding senior schools as highly motivated and confident young ladies. When talking to the girls they are abuzz with memories of their first sleep over at school, playing in the Spinney and wonderful experiences such as the annual Carol Service or the recreation of a Viking longboat from traditional materials! It is experiences like these that enhance the outstanding academic environment at Rowan.
Our happy, successful school is a testament to the hard work and determination of the girls. Girls develop skills and knowledge for the future, inspiring them to learn and enquire. Rowan nurtures curious minds where the girls have the opportunity to try something new, hone their passion for sport or show an appreciation of the arts. They are well prepared to take on life’s challenges whilst relishing the joys of childhood.
As parents, you will want the best learning opportunities for your daughter. I believe wholeheartedly in creating a strong partnership between you and the school. This will then truly give the girls the chance to shine and makes our school, above all, a happy community.
To really get a feel for Rowan life, please call us to arrange a visit. Alternatively, you would be very welcome to join us at our next open morning, as our best advertisement is the girls themselves.
