Despite the best efforts of staff the Royal School will be closed on Tuesday, 12 December.

With very low temperatures and freezing fog forecast for Tuesday morning and all staff and parent car parks inaccessible, we believe it would not be wise to encourage pupils, parents, carers and staff to venture out.  Although estates staff have made considerable efforts to ensure pathways in school are accessible and safe, we have no control over roads and pavements locally and therefore reluctantly have decided for health and safety reasons it is safest to remain closed.

With warming temperatures forecast on Wednesday, 13 December we hope to be open for our final day of the autumn term.  Sadly the performance of Macbeth will have to be postponed until the New Year.



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.
