Royal Grammar School

The Royal Grammar School, a college specializing in language, mathematics, and computing, caters to students from a broad area. The school offers boarding facilities for up to 70 students on its premises. The percentage of students qualifying for free school meals is relatively low, and there is a limited number of students facing learning difficulties or disabilities. The student body comprises slightly more individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds compared to the national average, and the number of students with a home language other than English is typical. The majority of Year 11 students transition to the sixth form. The headteacher oversees both the educational and care aspects of the school.
