Independent Day School, ages 2 - 18
Introduction - The Royal Grammar School, Worcester is one of the leading independent co-educational day schools in the West Midlands. The RGS Senior School has approximately 900 pupils aged 11 - 18 years, including a Sixth Form of 250 students. There are a further 550 pupils aged 2 - 11 years in the three RGS Preparatory Schools, RGS The Grange (two miles north of Worcester City Centre in the village of Claines), and RGS Springfield (a two minute walk from the Senior School in Britannia Square) and RGS Dodderhill (located in Droitwich Spa) is co-educational from ages 2 - 11 years, with girls only education for their Senior section from ages 11 - 16. The Executive Headmaster of the Senior School is a member of the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC).
Our Staff - RGS Worcester is proud of its high academic standards, its pastoral care, and the wealth of co-curricular opportunities the School provides. Key to this success are the staff that work here. We employ a wide range of staff in addition to our well-qualified and experienced Teachers, Estates, Finance, IT, Human Resources, Specialists Technicians, Early Years Practitioners and many others across our family of schools.
Teaching Staff at RGS Worcester come from a broad range of educational routes, some having worked in other professions before qualifying to be a Teacher. Every year we host PGCE students from local Universities. We expect all applicants to have a good degree in their subject specialism. However, a teaching qualification, whilst desirable, is not essential; we can and do provide full support for those who wish to become qualified after appointment. We are deeply committed to the professional development of our staff. Our staff who teach here will have a love of their subject and the ability to inspire and challenge and stretch able pupils to reach their potential. Our teachers enjoy making an active contribution to co-curricular activities, both for the reward of the activity itself and because of the different dimension it gives to their relationship with their pupils.
