Our Vision and Ethos

We believe in inspiring young people and equipping them to make a positive contribution to society.

The RGS as a school should be a centre of excellence that is committed to raising aspiration and attainment across the North East.

By inspiring and nurturing hearts and minds, we can give those around us the freedom to create and shape their own future.

A future that is built on our sense of history and belonging in the city but is fueled by an ambition to succeed and evolve.

A place where freedom of expression, ideas and beliefs can be shared, exchanged and grow openly in our happy environment.

An environment where we look out for each other and treat everyone with care and respect, within and beyond our community.

A spirit to challenge, inspire and stretch the minds of everyone here so we feel free to explore, free to think, free to try, free to dream of possibilities and free to be ourselves.
