Single-Sex Education

The RGS has a long-standing tradition of providing the very best education for boys and the School’s educational philosophy is geared towards achieving this aim.

Accomplished members of staff tailor their teaching to provide a stimulating, inspiring education which fulfils boys’ need for pace, variety and healthy competition. Boys are given the space and opportunity to mature and develop at their own pace and, most importantly, they enjoy a happy and challenging education in a supportive, positive environment. The ethos encourages each individual to fulfil his potential in academic, sporting, artistic and extra-curricular pursuits; boys are able to express and challenge themselves irrespective of their chosen field. RGS boys emerge from the School as modest yet confident individuals, cultured and well-rounded. They develop a global outlook and are ready for the challenges of a modern, rapidly changing world.

The School’s close ties with the local girls’ schools and the strong sense of community and family which strengthen these links mean the boys benefit from regular academic, extra-curricular and social interaction with the girls while still enjoying all the benefits and advantages of single-sex education.
