Boarding is a whole new way of life. However, by focusing on good communication with parents, we make sure that everyone is reassured. An established 'buddy' and peer support system helps new pupils settle in comfortably, resolving any pastoral issues quickly.
Matron looks after the health and well-being of the pupils in the House and we also have a well-established and sizeable health centre with nursing staff, daily doctor's surgery, dentist, physiotherapist and counsellor. Three healthy meals are provided daily in the magnificent dining hall, with nutritionally balanced menus consisting of fresh, seasonal and wherever possible, local produce.
At the Royal Hospital School we welcome and respect the needs and beliefs of children from all faiths and backgrounds, but a Christian faith underpins our philosophy. The whole-school community gathers together most mornings for chapel - an important time for reflection and consideration.
