Head's Welcome

As the Head of Rosemead Preparatory School and Nursery, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all the parents joining our school community. We believe that the education of your child is a partnership between home and school, and we are excited to embark on this journey together.

At Rosemead, we strive to provide a balanced curriculum that nurtures the holistic development of each child. While academic achievement is important, we firmly believe that education should encompass much more than just exams and grades. Our approach is centered around ensuring that your child receives a well-rounded education that includes a strong emphasis on Music, Art, Drama, and Sport, without compromising on academic excellence.

It brings us immense pride to share that our Year 6 children consistently achieve excellent results in the 11+ exams, opening doors to some of the top secondary schools. It is important to note that Rosemead prides itself on finding the school that is right for the child. However, this success does not come at the expense of our rich arts and sports programmes.

Every year, we witness the artistic talents of our children as they win National Art Awards and perform in breathtaking productions. Moreover, our sporting achievements are equally commendable, with several students qualifying and competing at the National Athletics competition in Birmingham this year.

Mr Graeme McCafferty, Head.


At Rosemead, we adopt a child-centered approach, where we make it a priority to truly know and under- stand each child. We believe that by recognising and nurturing their individual strengths and talents, every child can flourish and excel in their area of expertise. Our dedicated teachers work tirelessly to create a supportive environment where children feel inspired and motivated to achieve their personal best.

Our curriculum is designed to be creative and engaging, with each year group exploring topics that serve as the focal point of their learning. We encourage cross-curricular connections, where subjects are linked to a central theme, often supported by a captivating novel. This approach not only enhances their understanding but also fosters a love for learning that goes beyond the confines of the classroom.

We take pride in being a co-educational institution, recognising the immense value of a diverse learning environment. We believe that all children benefit from learning together, developing vital social skills and building strong, respectful relationships that will serve them well in their future endeavours. The world is a co-educational environment and we believe that school should be too.

Once again, welcome to Rosemead. We are committed to providing a nurturing and inspiring environment where your child will grow, learn, and thrive. Together, we will celebrate their achievements, foster their talents, and guide them on a path of personal and academic success.
