Rosehill Prep School, Tunbridge Wells, an update:
We were invited to revisit Rosehill Prep School in Tunbridge Wells to meet Head Emma Neville who joined in 2017 and is brimming full of exciting ideas for the school. The energy and enthusiasm of the pupils and staff was the overriding impression we came away with.
Rose Hill is a co-education day school, hidden away in central Tunbridge Wells. It is a deceptively large school surrounded by beautiful grounds covering 15 acres, it has great sports facilities and modern classrooms. There are 300 pupils ranging in age from 3 to 13.
As one of the oldest prep schools in England, Rose Hill has a long and interesting history. It first opened its doors in 1832 and the original site was situated on London Road in Tunbridge Wells. In 1966 the original site was sold for development and the head, Jack Grange having already found the new grounds in Culverden Down in 1951 proceeded to raise funds to develop the sports grounds and build a modern new school which was ready to go in August 1966.
It has maintained its excellent reputation for academic and sporting achievements over the years. We are confident it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future as it continues to move with the times and has started its own forest school and the children spend plenty of time outdoors.
Their latest addition to the school is their wonderful indoor swimming pool which opened only last year and is now in full use for lessons, galas and relaxation.
We’d highly recommend any parents looking to relocate to Tunbridge Wells or nearby to visit Rose Hill School. Limited spaces are available in a number of the year groups and the Head is always open to discussing placing new pupils whenever possible.
