Buckingham House

 Welcome to Buckingham House. My name is Mr Pickering and I am so proud of the House that I have the pleasure of leading. I have worked at the Royal School for just over four years, acting as a Teacher of PE and Subject Leader of Boys’ PE. I make it my daily mission to ensure students feel supported, encouraged and part of our fantastic community. As well as a clear passion for sport, I also love to spend time with my family, going on long walks with my dog and playing drums.

Mr Joseph Pickering - Head of Buckingham House

Aims and Values

Buckingham is a House which prides itself on our family ethos. Every member plays an integral role in the achievements that we make, whether it's our excellent team of form tutors or pupils from every single year group. As a previous form tutor in Buckingham, I’m immensely proud to see The Royal School values demonstrated on a daily basis, in particular, the respect our students have for one another and their sense of community. We have had some great moments including our excellent performance of “Enemy – Imagine Dragons” at the 2022 House music competition and finishing on top at the 2022 Summer Sports Day. Buckingham's pupils give their all to every aspect of school life, and we are sure to have many more memorable moments to come.
