Unleash your aspirations
Welcome to the website of the Newcastle upon Tyne Royal Grammar School. We often describe the RGS as "a special place". We really believe it is. There's a buzz about the place, an excitement about the whole process of learning. Our boys and girls, whether aged 7 or 18 or anything in between, don't just relish a challenge: they go looking for them. They throw themselves into school life with gusto and total commitment – and they constantly surprise themselves, their parents and even their teachers with what they achieve, in the classroom and outside.
Breadth of opportunity; depth of achievement; unstinting support, care and focus on emotional wellbeing; a sense of fun and ready laughter; space to think and a buzz of excitement: those are what characterise an RGS education.
But don't take my word for it! Come and visit us. I'm convinced you'll find what I've described if you visit us on a sunny spring morning – or on the wettest, coldest winter afternoon! And I think you'll agree with me just how special the RGS is.
