Top Ranking by Sunday Times Schools Guide

The Sunday Times Schools Guide ranks The Royal Hospital School in their 'Top Independent Schools in East Anglia'

The Royal Hospital School is once again delighted by the school's progress, confirming its position as one of the leading independent schools in the United Kingdom and East Anglia. The School's year on year improvement has been reflected with its highest position in the table.

The Headmaster, Simon Lockyer, comments;

"We are delighted to gain this recognition in the Sunday Times Schools Guide. As a non-selective school, I am particularly proud of the School's achievement, proving that academic standards and expectations are high for all our pupils. The best outcomes are achieved by supporting and challenging pupils through the commitment, dedication and care provided by the excellent teaching body.

RHS recognises that it is important that pupils are encouraged and stretched academically but education is much broader than just grades. Our leading co-curricular programme, allows our pupils to discover and explore their interests both inside and outside of the classroom and develop the enviable employability skills in the process. Whilst there is no measure for the broader educational benefit provided by the co-curriculum, it is undoubtedly what many parents value and identify as a distinctive feature of the school; valued highly for what it provides in developing confident and happy young people."

The survey, which ranks schools by their top A Level and GCSE exam grades, was published this weekend.
