The Royal Hospital School
James Lockwood, Headmaster

My wife, Sarah, and I welcome you to the Royal Hospital School website.

It is my honour and privilege to be the Headmaster of this unique school – an independent co-educational boarding and day school for 11 to 18 year olds, set in 200 acres of stunning Suffolk countryside and steeped in over 300 years of history.

Over those three centuries, the Royal Hospital School has grown and flourished, without losing its sense of self and the values derived from its heritage. It has not stood still, but developed into a forward-thinking, progressive educational establishment that turns out balanced, well-educated young people with a set of values of which any parent or future employer would be proud.

I believe that there is nothing more important than the education of children and young people. Probably more than any other school of our type, at the Royal Hospital School we recognise that ‘education is a liberating force’. As Headmaster, my aim is to unlock the potential of each individual by offering a whole new world of life-changing opportunities and an environment in which academic excellence is promoted through learning and shared experiences. We encourage boys and girls to discover themselves and, quite simply, to develop a passion for life; passion generates purpose, and from purpose the journey ahead becomes clear.

I hope that this website gives you a useful overview of life at the Royal Hospital School and the ethos that defines our community. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our school soon.
