Welcome to RGS Prep

We know how important your choice of prep school is, never more so than in the current climate and we are delighted to be able to offer the chance for you to visit our school in person. Our Open Mornings in March and October will give you the chance to have small group guided tours of the School with our friendly and knowledgeable staff.

RGS Prep provides an all-round education in a vibrant, dynamic environment. Our school puts the care and nurturing of each individual student at the heart of everything we do, with every opportunity given to each student to develop, grow and learn in order to realise his potential.

Welcome from the Head

Schools are a very personal choice. When you walk into any school, I would hope you feel a sense of purpose, warmth and community. You should be able to gain a valuable insight into how your child would engage and grow within that environment. RGS Prep is built on core set of strong values and academic rigour, but we also ensure that our boys are given the best pastoral care and excellent opportunities to thrive in a wide range of lessons and activities.

I’ll always remember the first time I stepped through RGS Prep’s doors. Like so many people, I knew the school’s excellent reputation, but I hadn’t quite anticipated the feeling I would get upon walking its corridors and meeting the boys. The school was a buzz with activity – the pupils I met were brimming with enthusiasm, curiosity and energy. They were well-mannered and polite. They were individual. But, most of all, they were happy.

When your son leaves our school, you can be assured that he will go on to his chosen senior school with a wide range of interests and the confidence to try new things and to embrace challenges that will help him realise his potential academically, thrive in his personal development and excel in his co-curricular interests.

During a visit to the School, I am certain you will get a real sense of who we are and what we stand for, and I look forward to welcoming you then.
