WELCOME TO ROXETH SCHOOL
Roxeth Primary School is one of the oldest schools in Harrow and we are proud of that history. Our school ethos is underpinned and reflected in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and a ‘values’ based education. We have strong links to our families, local schools and our community. We put every effort into ensuring our children become confident, considerate citizens.
Working in partnership with you, we aim to ensure every child achieves his or her full potential, feels safe and happy at school and develops a love of learning. We expect the best from our children and we help them to do their best.
Prospective parents and pupils are very welcome to look round the school, I hold weekly sessions for new parents, please contact the school office for an appointment.

Anthony Ashley Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury (1801-1885) was also a pupil at Harrow School. Lord Shaftesbury was known as the Reforming Lord Shaftesbury and the Poor Man’s Earl, because many of the reforms he championed helped the poor and the working class of Victorian Britain. In 1849 his son, Ashley Cooper, died at Harrow School.
The boys were so upset they wanted to do something to remember him and they contributed £600 toward building Roxeth School. Thus the connections we still have to the Shaftesbury family. The present Earl of Shaftesbury came to open our new rooms in the Infant building in 2011.
