Royal Grammar School


    The Junior School is strongly committed to providing a full range of clubs, and sporting, musical and dramatic opportunities for all students. Most boys and girls get involved in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and are encouraged to do so.

    Music and drama are both very strong throughout the school and all children are able to join in with activities and groups including bands, orchestras and choirs. There are frequent musical and dramatic productions throughout the year providing opportunities for children to experience performing on stage.

    All students are encouraged to represent the school in sports fixtures, with entire year groups travelling to compete against associate schools in the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses' Conference (HMC). A programme of outdoor education provides further challenges beyond the classroom, in settings such as Northumberland and the Lake District.

    In all that we do beyond the classroom, we are keen to provide opportunities for all, whilst ensuring that those who want to progress their skills to the very highest levels are provided with the right support for this to happen.
