The RGS sporting ethos can be split in to two main strands; Performance and Values.
At the heart of ‘Performance’ lies an ambition to ensure ‘each and every child is fulfilling their potential’. The majority of pupils play sport for the School, taking with them the benefits of their sporting experiences in to their future lives. Many of our pupils pursue and develop their sport beyond school in local clubs and we are very proud of the many pupils we have who have represented at a National level across a wide range of different sports.
‘Sport for All and All for Sport’
What does it mean to be Green?

Our Charter for Sport describes the ‘Values’ that we promote and look to develop. To join a school like RGS Worcester is to join a community and become part of a team. Like any team, it thrives on the trust and commitment which its members show to each other and the values that those team mates share. As such, we expect all of our pupils to be Resolute, Gracious, Selfless and Willing and to be proud of ‘Being Green’.
Whilst our programme is based on traditional team sports, the pupils’ experience is of up to date, innovative coaching. Sports practices and specialist clinics are a daily occurrence in all the major sports. Our lead coaches ensure that the coaching within each sport, as well as the essential Fitness, Strength and Conditioning, is kept abreast of new developments. These innovations also enable us to support sportsmen and women in sports outside of our traditional programme such as Cross-Country, Fencing, Equestrian and Swimming to name just a few and make up a part of our successful Athlete Development Programme.
Crowds measured in their thousands watch the annual first team rugby, football and netball fixtures with local friends and rivals King’s School at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium and Indoor Arena respectively. We host County hockey tournaments at the floodlit astro turf RGS The Grange, whilst Flagge Meadow hosts many fixtures for Worcestershire County Cricket Club. Athletics and Rowing complete the major games with training based at the Senior School site or on the nearby River Severn and there are exciting facility developments on the horizon that will see Tennis and Boys’ Hockey come to the fore.
The Senior School organises many major overseas sports tours which gives the pupils an opportunity to play against some of the best sports schools across the world and to experience a variety of cultures, often enriching their own lives as well as those that they come in to contact with through charity and volunteer work.
