About the school

High Achievers. Confident Learners.

The Royal School is an independent co-ed day and boarding school from nursery to sixth form 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.

THE VALUE OF SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

DUTIES OF A SCHOLAR
A Scholarship Award is held subject to a pupil maintaining a good standard of endeavour and conduct during their time at the School. Awards are subject to annual review by Governors and there is an expectation that an academic scholar will set an example in the way in which they approach their studies and in their personal behaviour. All scholarship holders will play an active role in the life of The Royal School. The Governors reserve the right to withdraw an award if a scholar falls short of the School’s standards.

 
SCHOLARSHIP ELIGIBILITY AND PROCEDURES
Scholarship candidates should be of the correct age for entry (11+, 13+ or 16+). Pupils sitting for Sixth Form scholarships must be in the final year of their GCSE studies (or equivalent). The School’s entrance papers include scholarship-level questions and need no special preparation. The questions are devised to test ability and potential rather than achievement alone.
