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.
Innovation is at the core of The Royal’s history. It was one of the first schools opened to allow girls an education and this sense of forward thinking defines our co-educational school now. As an organisation that purports 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 a new member of United Learning the school is embarking on some exciting developments with an ambitious building project that will see both senior and junior schools united at the Hindhead site in the academic year 2021/22. The accessible location, investment in state of the art buildings and sense of green, open space will make for an attractive and inspiring learning environment.
I hope you will come and experience this for yourself and look forward to welcoming you.
Mrs Philipa Smithson
