St Ronan's School

Saint Ronan’s was founded in 1883 in Worthing and moved to Hawkhurst in 1946, after war time evacuation in Devon. Over the years it has evolved into a co-educational day and flexi-boarding school for children from 3 to 13+. It is set in the magnificent Tongswood Estate, which offers acres of excitement and adventure. The epicentre of it all is Tongswood House, a large rambling Victorian mansion once the home of the Gunther family of ‘Oxo’ fame.

Whilst retaining its Hogwartian charm, the school has undergone something of a renaissance in recent years, with a new Pre-Prep, Music School, School Farm, All Weather Pitch,Forest School and Sports Hall having been constructed and new areas provided for Science, Art, DT, Drama and the Nursery. The dormitories, swimming pool,sports pitches, tennis courts and golf course have all been revitalised. A new Library has recently been completed and was opened by Clare Balding.

St Ronan’s is Tatler UKPrep School of the Year 2017/2018.
