Our Mission, Aims & Ethos

The Royal School

High Achievers. Confident Learners.

The Royal School is a co-educational independent school for pupils aged 0 –18

and a member of United Learning. 

Delivering a first class education in a vibrant and caring environment, our pupils become confident, successful and compassionate young people with qualities and qualifications that enable them to excel in their adult lives.

We believe in the power of inspirational teaching to bring out the very best in every pupil. We deliver an extensive and exciting curriculum inside and outside of the classroom that successfully promotes high academic achievement and strong personal development. 

Excellence is not only measured by strong A Level grades and a prestigious university course but by the personal qualities that complement academic success. Worthwhile learning is often hard. Inspiring teaching is what gives access to difficult concepts and the thrill of intellectual discovery.

We nurture and challenge each pupil to be the very best they can be. We focus on the individual, seeking to develop their talents and sparking their intellectual curiosity.  We believe in a balanced approach to learning that combines academic excellence with the broader skills of resilience, caring, ambition and fun. We deliver education with character and our pupils graduate from The Royal School with the qualifications and experience they need to take up places at the highest-performing universities and enter careers that best suit their talents and interests. 

Each year, parents choose The Royal School for their children because we prepare young people to make a success of their lives: subject-based learning; the development of talents; an understanding of work and society and instilling in them a lifelong set of core values:

  • Curiosity
  • Courage
  • Commitment
  • Creativity
  • Co-operation
  • Compassion
  • Confidence

Our exceptional pastoral support and nurturing environment gives our pupils the confidence to thrive in our changing world. Our Christian ethos encourages integrity, tolerance and a sense of social responsibility in all.

In becoming part of United Learning, we are joining a group that appreciates and promotes ‘education with character’; this combination of academic success and the development of wider skills is something in which we believe strongly and which our excellent results demonstrate in full.
