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 former reception rooms and bedrooms of the ‘old house’ have been converted to 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-pitch 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 for an extensive centre for DT. The Children’s Farm, sited in the Old Orchard, is much enjoyed as is the Forest School in Tongs Wood itself.
