Royal Grammar School


    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.
