Why should I choose RBHS?

Situated in an environment of extensive natural beauty, the school has over 450 years of history, and in recent years, the school has undergone a significant transformation. We have considerably invested in renovating the buildings, corridors and classrooms; creating new spaces for students to learn and enjoy. More importantly, it has transformed what happens in the classroom, putting students’ learning and pastoral care at the heart of the school.

In addition to providing excellent exam results, there is a real focus on developing the whole child; ensuring that students leave with the skills needed to succeed in their careers and play an active role in their communities.

We offer an extensive extracurricular provision to encourage students to excel in arts and sports and opportunities to develop students’ leadership skills.
