Tongswood House

Saint Ronan’s is set in the 249 acre Tongswood estate which proudly boasts some of the most picturesque Wealden countryside and is, without doubt, a very adventurous place to be young. The centrepiece of the estate is the imposing and impressive Tongswood House, a rambling Victorian mansion which is listed because of its architectural and local historical significance. The Prep School is based in the main mansion, where the former reception rooms and bedrooms of the ‘old house’ have been converted into classrooms or dormitories.

The Pre-Prep, Music and ICT departments are housed in the purpose-built Harris Building. Our sports centre, The Founder’s Hall, was opened in 2010 and an Astro added in 2015. The Nursery, Science laboratories and Art School are in the elegant Stable Block and the former ‘Power House’, historically used for generating electricity, has been converted to provide an extensive centre for DT. The Children’s Farm, sited in the Old Orchard, is much enjoyed, as is the Forest School in Tongswood itself.
