RHS gave me the strength of character to carry on when the cards dealt to you in life did not match your expectations.

The Development Office runs a number of regular events throughout the year in conjunction with the RHSA including; professional networking events; Army vs Navy rugby match; Summer Reunion Weekend; Old Boys Rugby & Curry Night; year group reunions as well as informal gatherings.


Former pupils and their families are very welcome to visit the School, in and out of school term. Tours can be arranged by contacting Lucy Pembroke ( in the Development Office.

Visits can also be accommodated to the Heritage Centre by appointment.


We are looking to recruit and support up to 100 active volunteers to inspire our pupils to be ambitious for their futures and help them prepare for life after RHS. We would appreciate your participation in alumni lectures, careers activities, mentoring and work placements and professional networking.
