Once again, Newcastle upon Tyne Royal Grammar School (RGS) is opening its doors to prospective parents this autumn, offering them the chance to see the fantastic facilities the school has to offer.
RGS is a leading independent day school for boys and girls aged 7 -18 years just a short distance from the City centre. Located in leafy suburb Jesmond, just across the Great North Road from the Town Moor, the School benefits from excellent transport links that sees students choosing to study at RGS from all over the North East.
The School is thriving, with over 1300 students, including more than 250 in the Junior School, and one of the largest Sixth Forms in the independent sector with more than 340 students. RGS became fully co-educational in 2008 and girls now make up over a third of the student population.
RGS is a special place, known and respected throughout the whole country as well as the North East, where aspirations are high, results are outstanding and opportunities are endless. Expectations are high and students go on to study highly selective courses at the most sought-after universities, but also leave RGS realising that life outside the classroom has been equally beneficial.
If you are interested in seeing what the school has to offer, as well as meeting the staff who will set your children on their journey through education alongside students who are already experiencing life at RGS; then attend one of the open events this autumn. Information evenings will be held on Tuesday 8th and Monday 14th November, with an open morning on Saturday 19th November. The Junior School will hold its annual open week from Monday 21st to Friday 25th November, giving perspective parents the opportunity to see the school on a typical working day.
