RGS Guildford

Welcome from the Headmaster

Welcome to RGS Guildford, a dynamic and happy independent day school for boys aged from 11 to 18.  We are proud to be a part of the local community.

Located in the heart of Guildford, the senior school is central to the vibrant life in the town, with our prep school located just half a mile away in the leafy residential streets.

I am often asked what it is that makes the RGS so special. For me it is the fact that we are such a supportive, inclusive and close-knit community, that we celebrate our 500 years of history while looking firmly to the future, that our students are unfailingly sparky, enthusiastic and inquisitive, that they come from all walks of life and are grounded, humble and unassuming.

Our Values

Every student is valued for their own sake, given the space and the encouragement to fulfil their potential in an environment where there are no stereotypes and each achievement, however small, is noticed.

A culture of integrity, mutual respect and tolerance allows our students to develop at their own pace and to be confident in themselves. Our focus on wellbeing and pastoral care are paramount. Kindness and compassion, good humour and enjoyment characterise daily life.  We take what we do seriously but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
