Saint Ronan’s is a co-educational day and boarding school for boys and girls from 3 to 13 years. It was founded in 1883 in Worthing and moved to its present site, Tongswood House, in 1946.
Children, teachers and parents are attracted to the school for its endearing family ethos, its old-fashioned charm and its modern outlook. Our aim is to blend the best of ‘ancient’ and modern.
Saint Ronan’s provides a range of educational opportunities suited to the interests, aptitudes and needs of the children in its care. We have dynamic teaching staff who teach in well-resourced departments.
At Saint Ronan’s the happiness and well-being of the children in our care are paramount. We seek to provide a secure, friendly and nurturing environment. We want the children to be kind, helpful, gentle and honest. We encourage them to work hard, to listen well and to look after their own things and those that belong to others.
We also recognise the importance of achievement. Saint Ronan’s has a fine academic record, particularly for scholarships, and a strong reputation for music, sport, drama and art. The majority of the children move on at 13+, mostly to the Public Schools, and a significant number gain places at Cranbrook School.
We offer advice on the suitability of senior schools, guidance on admissions and exam preparation. We want ‘our’ children to move on from us as confident, motivated, disciplined and independently-minded individuals .
