What the school says...
An education at RGS Worcester is inclusive, challenging and academically stimulating. In the Senior School, we offer an outstanding education for boys and girls aged 11 18 years with an extensive range of opportunities both in their studies and in their co-curricular experience of school life.
Our aim is to deliver excellence in all areas starting with high quality teaching and exceptional pastoral care. RGS Worcester, as one of the oldest schools in the country, combines a sense of history, community and place in the City of Worcester with state of the art facilities, spacious grounds and a determination to see each child achieve their full potential. We are pleased that our pupils attain the qualifications necessary to go on to the leading universities in the UK and abroad, and are particularly proud that they develop the personal qualities of working together, respecting one another and their community and being open and friendly towards others.
While the website should give you a flavour, only a visit can give you a real sense of the welcoming atmosphere, positive relationship between pupils and staff and our purposeful approach. We strongly encourage you to come and see us, either on a formal open day or even on an ordinary school day. You will have the opportunity to speak to staff and, in particular, to meet some of our pupils who look forward to showing you their school and all that they enjoy here.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
