Parents will no doubt have seen that the government has today announced the widespread closure of schools across the UK from the end of school on Friday 20 March.  It appears that schools will be required to continue to provide education and child care for the children of identified vulnerable children (EHCP/LAC/UASC) and ‘key workers’ who are employed in health care, education and other strategic roles.   We await clarification from the government regarding  who is identified as a ‘key worker’, and what the arrangements over the coming weeks will be.

We will contact our parents over the next two days of ‘normal school’ to clarify those arrangements.

 Please do not contact the school to enquire or our Reception will be overwhelmed at this difficult time.

 We remind parents that the school remains open as normal on Thursday 19 March and Friday 20 March and those pupils who are not ‘self-isolating’ should attend school.  If your son or daughter or anyone in your household has any of the symptoms of Covid-19; a persistent cough and/or a high temperature they should not be in school and should be isolated at home with the entire household being isolated for 14 days.

 In the next two days we will confirm arrangements for pupils to study at home and how the communications will operate.


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.
