RGS International

RGS Guildford has established an exceptional educational reputation in the UK.  We have decided to develop this by opening first class schools overseas.  RGS Guildford Qatar opened in 2016, RGS Guildford Nanjing opened in 2020 and RGS Guildford Dubai in 2021.  Further schools will open in China and possibly elsewhere.

These schools are being opened together with local partners and are long term collaborations which allow us to share our expertise globally while learning from other cultures. Our partners share our educational ethos and have the desire and resources to deliver international schools with fantastic facilities that will share our values.

The reasons for our international expansion are many: partnership; engagement in global cultures; enhanced reputation for the School; and an income which will be used primarily to support bursary funding for boys attending our school in Guildford.

We provide an outstanding British curriculum education based upon tradition and innovation, exceptional pastoral care, and an enriching range of extra-curricular opportunities. An inspiring, diverse education paves the way for students to face the challenges of a rapidly-changing world.  RGS students are happy, grounded individuals who take pride in all that they do, who have confidence in themselves, and who have a desire to have a positive impact on society. We are proud to bring over 500 years of academic excellence to our international schools.

I firmly believe that to prepare our students for the challenges of the twenty-first century we must lead by example: staying true to our values, working in partnership with others, innovating and striving always to be the very best we can be. RGS Guildford’s international schools will enable us to continue to deliver the very finest, rounded education and allow us to share our expertise globally while learning from other cultures. I hope you will share our enthusiasm as we continue to innovate and develop to allow the RGS to remain at the very forefront of education as one of the leading schools in the country.
