Founded in 1677, as one of the oldest state schools in the country The John Roan School has a distinguished history of supporting educational excellence for the young people of Greenwich.
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.

The John Roan School is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
We actively encourage and welcome visits to the school, and we would be delighted to show you around our Lower and Upper school sites so that you can fully appreciate our excellent learning environment.
