School Reviews


The Good Schools Guide is an independent guide which provides a detailed, subjective insight into schools.

It was founded in 1985 by Amanda Atha and Sarah Drummond, two parents in search of schools for their children. With the help of others, they visited hundreds of schools and wrote up their experiences in a direct and independent style which still characterises the guide. Schools are not able to pay to be included, rather the guide is independent in its judgements; views schools from a parent's perspective and on the basis of parental opinion; and is not influenced by academic results alone.

Based upon an extensive visit, interviews with the parent and staff body, as well as the Headmaster, and open discussions with the students, The Good Schools Guide reviewed the RGS in 2013; the full report is provided below.

"It’s a can-do culture – the school talks of ‘strengths’ and ‘development areas’ rather than ‘weaknesses’"
