The extensive work begins in earnest! Following the ambitious and successful growth programme in pupil numbers over the past three years, The Royal School’s exciting building programme is now well under way to develop first class teaching facilities for pupils from four to 19. Phase one of the school's development plan will see a new Sixth Form Centre and refurbished classrooms and is expected to be completed by the start of term, ready for phase two.
At the centre of all that we do is our inclusive community where students study, play and live together harmoniously. After the first Wolverhampton City Secondary Sports Award Presentation evening Mark Heywood, Principal, said "we are delighted to have been awarded the 'Inclusive School of the Year 2017/18' which reflects that nearly 90% of our pupils have played competitive sport for the school and been engaged in teams that have also won many of the local tournaments in different age groups and in a range of different sports." This is a huge achievement brought about by a fantastic team effort from the School's sports' department.
This excellent contribution, combined with more than 95% of Year 13 pupils achieving their first choice university place last summer, indicates that in 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.
