10 Reasons for choosing RGS Dodderhill

RGS Dodderhill is a school that cannot be summed up in words and we warmly invite you to experience our unique environment.  Our school is a place that provides an outstanding education within a  tranquil setting on the outskirts of Droitwich Spa. We maintain an exclusive small school environment that allows pupils to grow up at their own pace whilst receiving a first-class education from our highly qualified and dedicated staff.

  1. RGS Dodderhill is the only independent school in Droitwich Spa. The School nestles quietly on the outskirts of Droitwich, two minutes from the A38. A hidden gem of a school, that is largely undiscovered by the local community.

  2. RGS Dodderhill provides a first class start to your child’s education in our co-educational Nursery and Prep School. We welcome boys and girls from the age of two to eleven who are cared for by our experienced, enthusiastic staff. Our weekly Parents and Toddler session gives you the opportunity to get to know our setting and teachers, before your child starts. Girls can continue their education with us up to the age of 16 when they take their GCSE examinations. 

  3. RGS Dodderhill, along with the other RGSW Family of Schools, is recognised as an Apple Distinguished School.  We embrace the opportunities that iPads present to bring our pupils’ learning to life. Whether it is coding, presenting, creating or researching, this technology is fully embedded into our curriculum. 

  4. Everyone in our RGS community plays a part in the pastoral care of our pupils – parents, pupils and staff. Pupils in Reception and Prep grow up in a safe, nurturing environment, making the most of the huge opportunities on offer within our school. Girls leave us as confident young women, fully equipped for further education.

  5. Wraparound care from 7.45am to 6.00pm is included in the fees, as is a delicious hot lunch for all our pupils. Parents of young pupils can rest assured that their children will be stimulated and cared for throughout the extended day.

  6. Small class sizes mean that every child has a personalised learning experience. No-one is overlooked.  We celebrate what makes every child special, whilst enjoying excellent examination results year on year.

  7. We sit on a tranquil seven-acre site with lovely green spaces. Learning outdoors and looking after our environment are actively promoted. An exciting Adventure Playground and a magical Forest School area complement our sports field, outdoor Astro Sports surface and fully equipped indoor Sports Hall.

  8. We have many opportunities to compete regionally and nationally in sport. Football, Hockey, Netball, Cricket, Triathlon, Swimming, Equestrian Events and Athletics all enjoy a high degree of success at national level.

  9. Our purpose-built Music Department provides opportunities for every child. Choirs, Orchestra, Musical Theatre and individual instrumental lessons all make up the rich tapestry of our School. Music runs through our veins at RGS Dodderhill.

  10. Specialist teaching in PE, Music, French and IT, all starting in Reception class, give our children a real head-start in our modern world. Lessons are interactive and engaging, we make learning fun! Our fully equipped Cookery Room means that every child learns this important life skill.
