The building works continue! After opening as a Free school/State Boarding School in 2016, and following the ambitious and successful growth programme in pupil numbers over the past five years, The Royal School's exciting building programme is now well under way to develop first class teaching facilities for pupils from five to 19. Phase one of the school’s development plan saw a new Sixth Form Centre and refurbished classrooms. Phase two starts in the summer with renovation and more classrooms coming on line.
At the centre of all that we do is our inclusive community where students study, play and live together harmoniously. The Royal is a small, cohesive community with a friendly atmosphere for both day pupils and boarders alike. Our strong academic tradition is based upon individual attention and encouragement, as well as excellent pastoral care founded on respect, tolerance and understanding of others. Students achieve their full academic potential, whilst a wide range of extended-day activities is available to develop character and leadership. We prepare pupils for Oxbridge and other top universities while also catering to pupils of all abilities. The school regularly achieves high standards in both A-Level and GCSE results, particularly in STEM subjects of mathematics and the sciences. The Royal combines traditional values with a modern outlook and a 'real-world' attitude. At The Royal, education is about developing the whole individual.
Developing the 'whole person' in sport, drama, music and adventurous activity, young people at The Royal are also better placed to make the best of their opportunities to become well-rounded individuals with confidence and empathy for those around them.
