Set in 200 acres of Suf­folk coun­try­side over­look­ing the River Stour, the Royal Hos­pi­tal School pro­vides a full and broad education en­riched by its naval her­itage and fit for the mod­ern world.

The Head­mas­ter, Mr Si­mon Lock­yer, ex­plains the aims and ethos of the School:

“We in­spire our pupils to have the courage and com­mit­ment to be am­bi­tious for their fu­tures, which­ever path they choose. Ev­ery­one can achieve the most ex­cep­tional things but we are all dif­fer­ent. That is why we fo­cus on the in­di­vid­ual, get­ting to know every one of our pupils and find­ing out what mo­ti­vates them.

We chal­lenge pupils of all aca­demic abil­i­ties, steer­ing them to look be­yond the mo­ment, and be­yond the con­fines of the class­room, and to ap­proach life with an open and re­cep­tive mind. It is through think­ing cre­atively and tak­ing ini­tia­tive that they learn to es­tab­lish, and work to­wards, their own per­sonal goals.

By un­der­stand­ing a young per­son’s strengths we can help them to make the right choices at the right time, nav­i­gat­ing them through their crit­i­cal, for­ma­tive years and en­sur­ing that their education be­comes the foun­da­tion for hap­pi­ness and suc­cess.”

As well as its bal­anced and en­riched aca­demic cur­ricu­lum, the School has an es­tab­lished rep­u­ta­tion for mu­si­cal ex­cel­lence, out­stand­ing sports fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing an RYA Sailing Academy and the Gra­ham Napier Cricket Academy, a large and com­mit­ted CCF con­tin­gent and the op­por­tu­nity to pur­sue a huge range of in­ter­ests and ac­tiv­i­ties. The strong house sys­tem and em­pha­sis on out­stand­ing pas­toral care and pupil well-be­ing means there is a real sense of pur­pose and com­mu­nity where every child feels nur­tured, sup­ported and en­cour­aged.
