Why we do what we do at RGS

RGS Worcester is one of the oldest schools in the world and as current custodians of this ancient and venerable institution the Board of Governors aims to preserve and enhance the School for future generations.

The merger with The Alice Ottley School in 2007 has integrated and reinforced the strong identity of girls’ education in the combined school that was the hallmark of the institution that bore Miss Ottley’s name in respect of her achievements. The School today combines the strengths of both RGS and AOS making it a very special place to receive an education.

RGS exists to deliver to all pupils a robust forward-looking academic education across a broad range of disciplines. However, equally as important, pupils will also have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a wide range of Co-curricular activities such as sport, drama, music, art, debating, CCF, the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme and charity fundraising. Achievements in these fields complement the classroom learning.

In short, our pupils will be well prepared for whatever paths they choose to follow after their time at RGS and will make their mark across our communities as confident, yet considerate, young men and women who have the ability to make a genuine difference wherever they apply their focus and dedication. They will do this with the same self-assuredness, grit and determination that our alumni enjoy from their time at the School.

This is why we do what we do at RGS but we need your help to sustain the historically diverse accessibility to the School that has been its hallmark in Worcester. This is why we have launched the 20/20 Bursary Campaign.
