What the school says...

The Royal School is located in a leafy suburb of Wolverhampton, drawing day pupils from the area and boarders from both the UK and overseas. Small class sizes and the close care of tutors ensure that pupils achieve their full academic potential, whilst a wide range of extra-curricular activities develops character and leadership.

The School's most able pupils regularly excel, going on to Oxbridge and other top universities. At the same time, the School addresses the needs of pupils of all abilities. In fact, 98% of leavers go to their first choice university. The School achieves excellent results in Maths, Sciences as well as the Arts. At The Royal, education is more than just academic rigour, it is about developing the whole person.
