Rowan Brae and Rowan Hill are situated in residential areas away from busy main roads.  Both sites are a short walking distance from each other (0.4 miles) and are close to the main shopping area and railway station.  The K3 bus that runs between Kingston and Esher stops approximately a five minute walk from both sites.


Rowan Brae

Rowan Preparatory School
41 Gordon Road
Surrey KT10 0PJ

At Rowan Brae an informal one-way system operates down Gordon Road (school on left hand side) and parking is not allowed in front of the school building.  Between 8:30am and 8:45am 'drop and go' operates for parents of girls in Reception to Year 2 to park at the front of the school where a member of staff will help each girl out of the car and to the playground.  For all visitors to the school we suggest parking in Claremont Road.


Rowan Hill

Rowan Preparatory School
6 Fitzalan Road
Surrey KT10 0LX

At Rowan Hill an informal one-way system operates along Fitzalan Road (from Foley Road to Beaconsfield Road) and we suggest parking on Foley Road or Beaconsfield Road.



To reduce congestion on local roads and in particular around the school, Rowan operates minibus collection routes in the morning to take pupils in Year 2 - Year 6 to Rowan Brae and Rowan Hill.

The routes have been chosen to provide pick-up locations where parents/carers can park to see their daughters safely onto the minibus and with reference to the most common areas on the pupil address list. Minibuses are driven by Rowan staff and we also run a free shuttle from Oaken Lane Sports Ground to Rowan Hill, leaving at 8.20am.

We are keen to extend our minibus collection service and can vary our routes where demand allows. If you are interested in your daughter using the minibus service and would like to discuss the routes available, please email transport@rowanprepschool.co.uk
