The RGS is a dynamic and vibrant independent day school for boys aged 11 to 18.

The School has been closely associated with the beautiful town of Guildford for over five hundred years and has a long and distinguished history. As a flagship for boys’ education, the RGS has a national reputation for academic excellence but also prides itself on its traditional values of decency and respect, supported by very strong pastoral care. RGS boys have a genuine warmth, sense of fun and sense of community and tolerance which allow every individual to flourish.

The academic results are exceptional, confirming the RGS as consistently one of the top boys’ schools in the country. There is an ethos of healthy competition and ambition which allows the boys to secure places on the most competitive courses at the leading universities. The boys, however, are fulfilled in other ways and develop a love and appreciation of learning and culture as well as relishing opportunities beyond classroom within school, outside, community and international scope. RGS boys have the opportunity to experience the widest range of enriching opportunities providing them with a broad and balanced education. They enjoy learning in an environment which sparks curiosity, passion and imagination and which allows them fully to realise their natural potential.
