The Curriculum

Learning at Rowan gives all girls the chance to investigate, be challenged, take risks and be curious about the world around them. Academics are developed through experiences, adventurous learning and a specialist teaching model.

Games & The Arts

‘Sports for All’ is our mantra and with over 95% of girls learning an instrument, taking part in choirs, musical theatre, drama and dance; Arts and Games are all inclusive. Outstanding facilities include astro for hockey, netball and tennis courts and fields for athletics, cricket and rounders.

Pastoral Care

Over their time at Rowan, the girls develop a toolkit of strategies to manage the small bumps in the road which they will inevitably face in life. Social and emotional skills are cultivated in many ways, from dedicated SEW (Social and Emotional Wellbeing) lessons on their timetables to a highly personalised pastoral programme which keep the individual needs of every girl at the heart of what we do.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

It is my belief that when a school balances academics, with nurture, support and opportunity to learn about yourself and from others, that you are creating an environment which will inspire and nourish every girl.  We do this every day at Rowan, ensuring girls are happy, confident and enabled individuals.
