Welcome from the Head

Welcome to The Royal School.

As soon as visitors come to The Royal, they are struck by the warmth and family feel of the place where pupils are happy and successful. 

Academic excellence and a belief that outstanding pastoral care must underpin everything we do is a powerful combination in enabling that happiness and success. Our pupils are engaged in their learning, supportive of one another and open, polite and positive when you meet them. 

As an organisation that embraces modern ideas but is steeped in tradition and history, we are proud of our royal patronage and privileged to have Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II as our Patron. 

We believe in the best in everyone and are dedicated to developing character in our young people. Our commitment is to ensure they are future-ready to thrive in this rapidly changing world. 

As part of the United Learning Group, we continue to thrive and develop, even in the challenging times of a global pandemic. Our remote learning provision means that pupils’ education will continue to be excellent even if they have to shield or we experience localised lockdown. 

The best way to experience the  unique and warm atmosphere of the school is to come in and feel it for yourself.  When current restrictions are lifted, I would like to invite you for a meeting with me followed by a socially distanced bespoke tour of the site, tailored to your child’s interests and needs. In the meantime, please do contact our Head of Admissions to organise a video or telephone call with me. We are all about the individual here and that starts from the moment you first get in touch.
