Senior School

The Senior School at The Royal High School offers a dynamic, girl-centred environment that celebrates the individuality of each girl, allowing her to develop the confidence, character and self-esteem to explore her unique talents.

We encourage each girl to persevere in the discovery of her own potential, and help her to achieve her aspirations in every aspect of life.
Our rich, forward-thinking academic curriculum is underpinned with high quality teaching and academic rigour. Through it, we aim to encourage an enduring and life-long passion for learning and discovery. The curriculum enables girls to develop significant intellectual skills that go beyond each academic discipline, to ensure they can use their knowledge in new situations and see connections between and within subjects.

From the very start of Year 7, girls are given a thorough grounding in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and the Sciences. This education is further enriched by Languages, PE, Arts and the Humanities, all taught by specialist teachers who have a passion for their subject. Further information about each of the subjects in the curriculum can be found here.

Our students’ full participation in the curriculum also includes an extensive programme of trips and visits that enhance learning across all subjects. This programme involves regular theatre visits and field trips as well as international exchanges, music and sports tours that allow our girls to fully explore all areas of interest.

Our Careers department further support the curriculum by providing 1:1 support and advice about the opportunities available after school, and arrange for inspirational guest speakers throughout the year, alongside larger events such as careers fairs.

Some girls may require some extra support to help them reach their full potential, and we are both very happy and fully equipped to provide this additional level of assistance, via our Learning Support Programme.

Whether your daughter is a gifted scientist hoping to develop a career in engineering, a talented musician waiting for her chance to take to the stage, or has a passion for the arts, The Royal High School will help her to achieve her ambitions.
