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.

RHS Student

Being part of this school community has allowed me to reach for the sky, find myself as a person, chase opportunities and in some cases allow opportunities to find me. My motivation to achieve my dreams will continue long after RHS. - Ayoola

RHS Teacher

At RHS, we aim for all our pupils to realise their full potential, enjoy their experience of learning and be empowered with the knowledge, skills, confidence and strength of character to go on to lead purposeful and happy lives.-Harriet Barber

RHS Parent

We chose RHS for a combination of reasons, but particularly for the outstanding music provision. We also liked the ethos and atmosphere, and chose RHS over a similar school because of the values, the feel of the school, and the attitude of the headmaster and other key staff. - RHS Parent
