The Royal Hospital School

Co-educational Senior School

“A boarding school par excellence.” (HMC)


Set in 200 acres of Suffolk countryside overlooking the River Stour the Royal Hospital School provides a full and broad education enriched by its naval heritage and fit for the modern world.


The Headmaster, Mr Simon Lockyer, explains the aims and ethos “We inspire our pupils to have the courage and commitment to be ambitious for their futures, whichever path they choose. Everyone can achieve the most exceptional things but we are all different. That is why we focus on the individual, getting to know every one of our pupils and finding out what motivates them. By understanding a young person’s strengths we can help them to make the right choices at the right time, navigating them through their critical, formative years and ensuring that their education becomes the foundation for happiness and success.”

As well as a balance and enriched academic curriculum, the School has an established reputation for musical excellence, outstanding sports facilities including an RYA Sailing Academy and the Graham Napier Cricket Academy, a large and committed CCF contingent and the opportunity to pursue a huge range of interests and activities.

With 420 full boarders, a strong house system and an emphasis on outstanding pastoral care there is a real sense of purpose and community where every child feels nurtured, supported and encouraged.
