The Royal School's 2016 ISI Report 

Report finds the quality of teaching and pastoral care excellent

School inspectors from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) have found that The Royal School ‘has established a highly positive ethos meeting its aim to provide a nurturing and inclusive community in which the educational needs and personal development of pupils in all parts of the school is fully supported.’ They also reported that, ‘the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the pupils is excellent,’ noting that, by the time pupils leave the school, ‘they have reached an excellent standard of personal development… and are well prepared, to lead independent, purposeful and fulfilled adult lives.’

The Royal School's proposal for a Free School from September 2016 has now progressed to the pre-opening phase and has undertaken a public consultation period from 19 October to 4 December, 2015, which has now closed. The Consultation Report can be read here.

The 2015/2016 school year is going to be a busy and most exciting year in the journey of the Royal School as it moves toward becoming a Free School in September, 2016.

Change is a constant in life and the very positive response from the school community to these developments shows how adaptable and flexible our pupils, staff and parents are to the improvements being made at the school, whilst retaining the character, ethos and culture of our ‘family focused’ school.
