Inspections

By the time they leave school, pupils have highly developed skills for the next stage in their life. They are responsible, thoughtful and mature. Pupils are keenly aware of their social responsibilities and are eager to seize the opportunities that lie ahead.”

Another ‘Excellent’ Inspection Report for RHS

We are delighted to announce that following our inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in November 2016, the Royal High School has been awarded the rating of ‘excellent’ in both academic achievement and personal development. This is the highest accolade a school can attain.

With regards to the quality of pupils’ personal development, the inspectors noted that ‘pupils are mature for their ages and develop high levels of self-knowledge’. Behaviour was described as ‘exemplary’ both towards one another and to staff, and it was noted that pupils are ‘extremely proud’ of their school community.

The report highlighted a particular area of strength of achievement and skill in both technology and art, describing this as ‘exceptional’.

Boarding pupils spoke “enthusiastically of the benefits that boarding provides them”, and 100% of the parents of boarders who responded to the questionnaire agreed that the RHS boarding experience “helps their children’s progress and personal development”.
