The Royal School

The Royal School's proposal for a Free School from September 2016 has now progressed to the pre-opening phase and is undertaking a public consultation period from 19 October to 4 December, 2015.  Please proceed to our Statutory Consultation page for more information.

Applications are now being accepted for the Free School at The Royal opening in September, 2016. Application forms for primary and secondary pupils can be found here. Students applying for the Sixth Form should download this form.  Application forms for Boarders can be found 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.
