What says..

Competition in a wealth of activities, including debating, creative writing, the Christmas card contest and golf, is spurred on by the house system. This comprises Elgar (after the composer), Ottley (to mark the school’s 2007 merger with Alice Ottley School), Wylde (after a 16th-century benefactor) and the exotically named Whiteladies (named after a building that used to house a nunnery, complete with its secret tunnel to the cathedral). Pupils, looking back, told us first day nervousness had quickly disappeared because the teachers were 'really supportive'...

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since 2014, John Pitt, an individual in the prime of his middle years. Educated Dulwich College, he studied history at Cambridge and remained in Fenland in order to gain his teaching qualification. He started his career at Whitgift where he became head of sixth form, before moving to Portsmouth Grammar as deputy head (academic). He then returned to Whitgift for eight years as second master – posts which quite clearly have prepared him comprehensively for leadership. Conspicuously devoid of the ego and the swagger that is demonstrated by some of the boorish beasts in the headmaster jungle, he has in his demeanour something of a top-ranking surgeon about him as he dissects our questions, steepling his fingers in thought.

Astute, crisp and quietly proud of all that his school is,...
