A Royal School

 The spirit of innovation is at the core of The Royal School history. 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 Queen Elizabeth II as our Patron and HRH The Princess Royal as our President.

A setting that inspires

It is hard to beat the position of our school, nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty and safe at the top of  Farnham Lane, yet close enough to Haslemere train station to hop on a train to explore the busy hotspots of London or    the cobbled streets, shops and cultural venues of Guildford.

A happy and safe environment

As a boarder at The Royal you are part of a tight-knit community, where local and international pupils feel equally at home and enjoy each other's company in a vibrant and buzzing house opened by our patron, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Our Head of Boarding, Mrs Bartlett-Rawlings and her team make sure that you feel happy and at home when you are here. There is always someone to talk to, whether you need help in your academic studies or just a listening ear. The fun and fulfilling schedule of activities and trips means you gain all sorts of experiences that are enriching and make for an unforgettable boarding experience.

No 'compulsory' exeat weekends

At The Royal, we take the cost and worry of going to guardians for exeats out of the picture. We remain open and buzzing with activities throughout the term. This is a unique offering and popular with parents and pupils alike.

Royal boarders have the choice to stay with us over the weekends (except holidays and half terms) to enjoy a range of activities lead by our experienced Head of Boarding.
