We are pleased to announce the news that ownership of The Rowans School will transfer from King’s College School Wimbledon to Shrewsbury House School from 1st August 2017.
The Rowans School has thrived under the stewardship of King’s for the last fifteen years and is well recognised as an outstanding co-ed pre-preparatory school, providing an excellent academic, pastoral and nurturing environment for its young pupils, as they embark on their first experiences of school.
Shrewsbury House School, building on its expertise in pre-prep education, has sought to expand its portfolio of pre-preps and acquired Shrewsbury Lodge in 2009. Priding itself on providing an exceptional level of preparation for the next stages of education, it is ideally positioned to nurture the unique culture and ethos of Rowans.
Penny Hughes, Chair of Governors of King’s commented, “We are proud of our period of ownership of The Rowans School and very confident that its special character will be sustained through a change in ownership. Shrewsbury House is a Trust with whom we have had an excellent long term relationship and which sends many pupils to King’s senior school.”
Kevin Doble, Headmaster of Shrewsbury House, commenting on this exciting development said “We are delighted to welcome the staff, parents and pupils of The Rowans School into the family of the Shrewsbury House School Trust. We know first-hand of the excellent teaching and pastoral care provided by the School, as we have welcomed a number of pupils from The Rowans to Shrewsbury House over many years. All our staff and I are looking forward to working closely with The Rowans community for the mutual benefit of all our pupils."
Joanna Hubbard, Head of The Rowans School, said “I am proud to be leading the School, its staff, pupils and parents into this next phase. We will continue to maintain our high standards of education and care and provide an inspiring and secure environment for all our pupils."
