The Royal Hospital School (RHS) is an HMC co-educational boarding and day school for approximately 700 pupils aged 11-18. The School occupies a magnificent 200 acre site in the Suffolk countryside just south of Ipswich.

RHS has recently completed an ambitious programme of boarding house development: 8 boarding houses have been completely refurbished at an approximate cost of £1.5 million each. A new £3.5 million music school was also built during this phase of development and a dedicated day house was opened in September 2010, with a second day house opened in September 2015. Further development of the School estate and the provision of top quality facilities for the education of our pupils remains a priority. The School has embarked upon a rolling programme of classroom refurbishment and, thanks to the generosity of our trustees, Greenwich Hospital, a £400,000 Wi-Fi programme has facilitated wireless internet access across the whole school campus since 2013. All members of the teaching staff and all pupils have iPads as part of the School’s mobile learning initiative.

The School selects pupils from a reasonably broad ability range and for this reason the examination results achieved over the past few years have been pleasing (pass rates of 100% at ‘A’ level (60 to 70% A*/B) and 95% at A* to C at GCSE level).

The Royal Hospital School aims to provide academic excellence with an outstanding range of cultural and sporting opportunities. This is strongly backed up by first-class pastoral care and a commitment to leadership, service and spiritual awareness. We have an outstanding campus which provides a safe and secure environment. We have a talented and dedicated staff who believe in maximising each child's potential, fuelling their aspirations, firing their imagination and encouraging independence of thought. We seek to provide pupils with the skills and confidence to navigate their own lives and to think about where they will be at 25.

School Mission

Our mission is to create an environment which promotes academic excellence and maximises the full potential of young people through learning and shared experiences. We aim to ensure that our pupils are able to form strong relationships and make a valuable contribution both here at school and in the adult world in which many will become leaders in their chosen field. We want The Royal Hospital School to be the first choice of parents seeking an outstanding all round, balanced and full education for their children; a commitment to leadership, service and an international outlook lie at the heart of the School's values.
