Beyond The Royal

As a proudly mixed ability school, The Royal is academically ambitious for all its pupils and 2021 was consistent with our usual excellent academic record. Many students received top marks against our impressive offering of a particularly broad range of subjects; 25 in total.

Catering for the individual is at the heart of the school. This is clear in the array of courses pupils are going on to. 83% of students achieved their first choice of university in 2021 and two thirds went to Russell Group Universities. The courses range from traditional degrees such as Law and Architecture to highly specialist degrees like Statistics and Computer Science to vocational degrees including Song writing, Illustration and Nursing. 

These results reinforce The Royal School's reputation for strong academic progress, a robust value-added education and high individual achievement.
