Vision and Values

It is our vision as a Free School to provide a unique offer for city of Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas – that is an all through, 4 to 19, co-educational, non-denominational day and boarding school providing outstanding non-selective education for all its pupils within a strong and supportive community.

It is our mission to build on The Royal’s distinctive heritage and record of academic excellence in our pursuit to educate the whole child. We are privileged and honoured to have the full support of our patron, HRH the Earl of Wessex.

As a Free School we adopt a holistic approach to education, developing the potential of every child by encouraging leadership, resilience, responsibility and character. We aim to achieve this by living out our five core values of:

Respect   |   Community   |   Initiative   |   Trust   |   Risk

Our values are underpinned by a shared commitment among Governors and staff to:

Deliver traditional values and behaviour teamed with a forward-looking dynamic and global outlook.

Achieve excellence in the arts, on the sporting field, in STEM subjects and across the curriculum as a whole.

Provide an outstanding extended day enrichment programme that not only nurtures and develops young people across a range of talents, but promotes skills for life and enhances academic success.

Adopt an inclusive approach to building pupil motivation, aspiration and self-esteem through our ‘all age’ structure, vertical house families, and outstanding pastoral and wraparound care.

Teach personal responsibility and accountability within a vibrant and supportive extended community – be it in our boarding houses, links with The Royal’s existing alumni and active engagement with our neighbourhood community.

Appreciate our unique situation as a peaceful educational ‘oasis’ within the heart of the city and use this to support our shared belief that learning is the passport to future success.


Flexibility – we have packages available for flexi boarding which might suit busy families where both parents work late or where parents may want some time away.

3 night stays mid-week for £135

3 night weekend stay which includes an activity for £155

Single night £55

Routine – structured evenings including a supervised prep, evening activities and a good bedtime routine ensuring our boarders are well rested for the next day.

Enrichment – our boarding houses are incredibly diverse and act as an opportunity for boarders to experience cultures from all around the world. The nurturing environment helps them develop socially and helps prepare them for life after school.

Family – We have a strong family ethos here at The Royal School, strengthened by our fantastic and experienced staff and their own families including our much-loved Harry (4) and Thomas (1) who have all the boarders in the palm of their hands.
