The Royal Hospital School is an independent co-educational boarding and day school for 11-18 year olds, providing an outstanding, full and broad education enriched by a unique naval heritage and fit for the modern world. Founded in 1712 in Greenwich, London, it moved to its spectacular site, set in 200 acres of Suffolk countryside overlooking the River Stour, in 1933. The School has continued to develop its spectacular purpose-built site and grow in size and reputation to become one of East Anglia's leading independent schools.


Throughout the year we host Taster Events for children who are looking to join us in Year 7 the following September or in Year 9 two years later. Our Year 7 Taster Days are based in 'Blake House' and are a perfect opportunity for parents and children to become more familiar with RHS. 

You will have a chance to meet our Headmaster and the Blake House team, and hear about how we support our new Year 7 pupils as they join senior school life.  Children stay with us to join in with some fun taster sessions in Art, D&T, Drama, Music, Science & Sport whilst parents can chat further with our team and enjoy a tour of Blake House and the School, if they have not done so already. The day generally lasts from 8.30am - 2.30pm.

RHS is a school that believes every young person has the individual potential to achieve the most exceptional things, whatever their path. Royal Hospital School immerses our pupils in an education filled with inspiration to unlock skills and pursue a purposeful life. 

If you have any queries about our virtual open days or private visits, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our admissions team admissions@royalhospitalschool.org
