Vision and Ethos
The aim of the RGS is to provide an excellent education for boys, supporting them in their passage to adulthood by developing character and intellect within a scholarly community in which each individual is cared for and valued equally. While the RGS is a non-denominational school, its ethos is firmly based on sound Christian principles.
The School has four main aims:
To encourage the growth of intellectual curiosity, creativity and habits of learning within a scholarly community by the provision of talented and committed members of staff, who will inculcate a lifelong love of learning in the boys.
To offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities through which boys can establish important life skills and can develop their social, sporting and cultural abilities.
To encourage the development in every boy of self-discipline, responsibility, spiritual values and a personal moral code, leading to the highest possible standards of behaviour, consideration for others and a pride in himself and his school.
To continue to meet the charitable aspects for which the School was established by encouraging an awareness of the world outside and a sense of service to the local and wider community and by developing and broadening the range of innovative educational projects in conjunction with local, national and international partners.
