The task of The Worcesterian is to celebrate all that goes on across the academic year.
The Worcesterian 2020-21 chronicles an extraordinary year in RGS Worcester’s history when the Covid-19 pandemic continued to affect schools, meaning safety measures continued to be in place. An eight week period of ‘lockdown’ at the start of the Lent term 2021 required a move to remote learning using our Digital Learning Programme, and the cancellation of Public Exams required Academic Departments to assemble Teacher Assessed Grades for the Exam Boards.
The Worcesterian 2019-20 is different to previous editions because it chronicles an unprecedented time when the whole world took on the challenge of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and shares some of the experiences. I hope that it is of interest to everyone, not only for the content and memories but also for the togetherness that it demonstrates – for me, the overarching theme of our RGSW community over the last year.
The Academic year 2018-19 saw significant developments at the School which demonstrate the innovative approach to education at RGS Worcester.
We saw the addition of a fourth school to the RGS family with Dodderhill School joining in April and becoming RGS Dodderhill, providing even more choice for parents and pupils in the RGS educational offering.
The academic year 2017-2018 was truly exceptional with achievements across so many areas of school life. RGS pupils rose to the challenge academically and had a successful year in Debating, team and individual sports as well as full participation in CCF, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the fiercely contested House competition.
2016-17 really has been an exceptional year at RGS Worcester and one that the whole school community should reflect upon with a sense of great pride. We were perhaps inspired this year by the words of Sir Ranulph Fiennes who visited RGS in September and gave an extraordinary talk about his adventures, thanking me for the visit to such a “great school”.
We hope that you enjoy reading The Worcesterian 2015- 2016 and that it provides a fitting tribute to a very successful year. Our challenge is to continue to build upon such strong foundations in providing the very best independent education for our pupils at RGS Worcester.
