The Royal School will be closed to ‘Day Pupils’ on Monday 11 December due to the heavy snow that has fallen on Sunday, 10 December, and the Met Office forecasting very low temperatures overnight and into Monday.  Many pupils come from a great distance and roads are treacherous in remote areas and also closer to the city transport is likely to be difficult.  This is not a step the School takes lightly, but safety of pupils, parents, carers and staff is paramount.  Boarding pupils remain in school and will be ably looked after by staff and can perhaps further improve their snow structures built today!

With improving weather and clearance of roads being likely during Monday we hope to open on Tuesday, 12 December and be able to enjoy the performance of Macbeth in the Theatre in the evening.

We will of course update parents and carers during Monday regarding arrangements for Tuesday through Schoolcomms, the School website and social media channels.


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.
