Statement from the Headmaster on the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II

"The announcement of Her Majesty The Queen’s passing has been met with profound sadness around the globe and transcended generations.

At the Royal Hospital School, we have been incredibly grateful for the personal interest Her Majesty has shown in our school. We are very proud of our association with the Royal Family over many years, making this news all the more keenly felt.

Her inspirational leadership and immense personal integrity have been examples to successive generations - a true stateswoman who has steered her family, the nation, the Commonwealth and all its people through periods of historic change, guided by her Christian faith. The example she has set of dedication and service has been an enduring feature of her reign.

Our community of former and current pupils, parents, governors and staff extend our thoughts and prayers to her family and all those who share in the loss and profound sadness at the passing of our treasured and much-loved Monarch."
