What The Good Schools Guide says..
A very lovely, slightly bonkers school,’ is how the head describes it. ‘Fun and more fun,’ is what the pupils say. It’s the first time we've heard a pupil say, ‘I would live here if I didn’t have my own house.’ If your opening line to the head is, ‘Where’s the sports hall?’ she’ll probably (quite rightly) send you off to RGS The Grange. If your question is, ‘How do you keep them happy?’ we doubt you’ll be disappointed. ‘‘Small is beautiful’ is the overriding ethos. Though the building is listed and full to bursting, some shrewd amendments have been made including…
What the school says...
Our aim is to ensure that children develop their full potential academically, socially and emotionally in a safe, caring environment.
All our pupils, who range in age from 2-11 benefit from individual care, small class sizes, professional and dedicated teaching; all of which help children become confident, secure and considerate of the needs of others.
The school has scored highly in recent inspections, rated as consistently outstanding by Ofsted, ECERS and ISI inspectors. There is a wealth of academic and extra curricular opportunities to provide children with an enriching and stimulating environment, preparing them for the challenges of the 21st century, underpinned by traditional family values.
The school has wonderful grounds, which allow pupils to play outside in all weathers, learn from the natural environment and take part in all the fun that Forest School offers; wellies are very much encouraged!
The school, tucked away within the beautiful Georgian Britannia Square in the heart of Worcester, will provide a safe and happy place for your child to grow and develop. This website conveys only some of the ethos and spirit of RGS Springfield. Please visit us and see for yourself the happy, smiling faces of children having fun and learning in a stimulating environment. We are very much a happy family.
I look forward to welcoming you in person to our school. ...Read more

All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.
What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2012, Laura Brown (50s). Educated at London day schools, then boarder at Kent College. Spent her gap year in retail (‘which I loved because it was fast paced and fun’) before doing a philosophy degree at the University of Kent that involved working in schools (‘which I loved even more’). Inevitable, perhaps, coming from a long line of academics. Took PGCE in primary education, then combined bringing up her three (now grownup) daughters with prep teaching posts in Berkshire and Gloucestershire, followed by six years as director of studies and deputy head at Dean Close in Cheltenham.
Full of fizz and dynamism but not naturally ambitious – ‘I’ve always loved the job I’m in, it’s others that suggested the moves.’ Even her current post was the result of a...
