Sarah Rowledge


Diploma, EYP, QTS

After a wide ranging career that spanned fashion and entertainment, as soon as I came in to contact with Montessori education, I was hooked.  By April 1999, I first opened the doors of Absolute Angels to children, by 2008 we had established Soaring High Primary School, offering Montessori Education in the heart of Essex to children up to the age of 11.

I have felt incredibly privileged to witness the amazing development of the many, many children who have attended.

In recognition of almost 20 years dedication to early years and primary education, unerring peer support across the country, and simple exemplary practice, in March 2018, our very own Sarah Rowledge received the prestigious Outstanding Contribution to the Montessori Community Award.

Over the years Sarah has inspired and trained hundreds of Montessori practitioners through her training company Hands On Learning’s early years and primary Montessori training courses.

Ex-Trustee of the Montessori St Nicholas charity Sue Briggs said,

“Sarah’s door is always open to visitors in the hope that just a little of the magic she has created will rub off and inspire practice elsewhere. She has offered us her passion, her time and her inspiration and she deserves our enormous thanks for the gifts she has shared with us over the years. Sarah has absolutely provided an outstanding contribution to the Montessori community.”
