EDI Statement

At the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle we are committed to ensuring that all students, parents, staff and Old Novos – indeed everyone in our community - are treated equally, without discrimination because of gender, sexual orientation, marital or civil partner status, gender reassignment, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, social background, religion or belief, disability or age.

In terms of staff appointments and student admissions, we proactively seek to welcome people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Not just because it is the right thing to do but because at the RGS we recognise that those different experiences provide fresh perspectives, opportunities to challenge existing beliefs and provide opportunities to act as excellent role models for our diverse student body. We are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse school culture and our staff and students are at the heart of this.
