Welcome from the Head
I am delighted to give you a virtual welcome to RMS and I hope that our website will entice you to visit us in person and experience this distinctive and stunningly beautiful school for yourselves.
RMS is a thriving day and boarding school with an ethos that is both aspirational and nurturing, where girls receive an education that is rich, balanced and above all, happy. Our Pre-School, Ruspini House, caters for boys and girls aged 2 to 4. Cadogan House, our Pre-Prep and Preparatory Department housed in superb accommodation, welcomes girls aged 4 to 11. Hind House, our Sixth Form Centre, offers our most senior girls university-style teaching and learning facilities as well as plenty of space for relaxation.
At RMS we are educating the women of the future to take their places in a challenging and inter-connected world. RMS girls strive to be the best that they can be, academically, morally and creatively. We understand that examination grades are only one ingredient in success and that young women need self-belief, integrity and resilience to thrive in the real world. Our warm, dynamic and friendly school gives girls the confidence and skills to fly into the future.
RMS is all about recognising the individual, and each girl is encouraged to write her own individual story. Through the exceptional breadth of our curriculum and extra-curriculum, we hope that girls will find a field in which to shine and that this spark will ignite the passionate engagement that underpins the most rewarding careers.
RMS is values-driven and we offer an inclusive environment where girls learn to be confident and to aim high. We choose not to appear in league tables because we measure our success by the value that we add; inspectors rated academic progress here as exceptional. Our fully comprehensive Sixth Form regularly achieves an A*/B rate at A Level of around 80% and 90% of our leavers gained a place at their university of first choice in 2016.
I look forward to meeting you to talk more about this unique school where we combine dynamic teaching and learning with traditional expectations that are rooted in a long and proud history. RMS is committed to educating young women to be creative, enthusiastic and generous contributors to an ever changing world.
