Welcome to Rutherford House School
Welcome to Rutherford House School, a two form entry, primary free school based in Balham, South London. We opened in September 2013 with our pioneering first year of children and their families and have now welcomed our fourth year group. We currently have Reception to Year 4 classes and will reach full capacity in 2020.
At Rutherford House, the child comes first. We are a non-fee paying, non-selective, non-denominational, co-educational school and as such welcome children from all backgrounds. We pride ourselves on offering a bespoke, personalised education that meets the needs of all pupils and is totally inclusive. Our ambition is to be excellent in everything we do while ensuring our pupils enjoy their learning experiences, feel supported and become confident, independent learners in a culture that encourages risk-taking and regards mistakes as opportunities. Discussion and debate are encouraged; beliefs, ideas and rights are respected. Above all, my staff and I enjoy working in a happy school where our children are eager to charge through the gates every morning and are reluctant to leave at the end of the day.
We actively seek links between our school, home and the wider community. We support parents to ensure they can support their child’s development, and stay informed about their learning. The diverse community is celebrated and children learn through sharing their experiences in and out of school.
In addition to our permanent staff, we are well supported by specialist teachers in sports, music and languages, as well as providing a wide range of extended school provision that offers opportunities such as ICT coding, ballet, football, tennis, netball, street dance, cookery, French and much more.
We are extremely proud of all our children and what they have achieved since our school opened and I hope our website will give you a sense of what is it like to be part of our enthusiastic, thriving and successful school community. There is so much more to Rutherford House than academic, sporting, dramatic or musical success and we are pleased to welcome you to experience our exciting, vibrant and caring environment in person. If you would like to find out more about Rutherford House School, we would be delighted to talk to you or show you around during one of our many Open Mornings or afternoons. Contact us on 020 8672 5901 or via firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you to our growing school.
With warm wishes,
