Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The New School Rome is extraordinary. A nurturing, intensely friendly and intimate place to learn backed with outstanding academic rigour. It is unlike any other school you will have experienced.

Teaching approach of the school

Genuinely child centred - small class sizes mean we know the children extremely well! We know how to teach them, how to motivate them, how to get the best out of them and how to support them. As one mother said, 'they know my children as well as me'.
