Boarding applications are invited from any pupil from Year 7 upwards with passports from within the European Economic Area. Pupils with EU/EEA passports living outside the UK do not require educational visas to study at The Royal and they only need to pay boarding fees as tuition is free.
All boarding applicants are made directly to the School and parents must complete two application forms. Pupils in Years 7-11 must complete a Royal School Senior Application Form and a Boarding Supplementary Information Form and submit them together to The Royal. Students in Year 12 must complete a Royal School Sixth Form Application and a Boarding Supplementary Information Form and submit them together to The Royal.

The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
