The Royal High School Bath is a leading independent Day and Boarding school of choice for girls aged 3-18

Laughter and a lifelong love of learning, collaboration and camaraderie, drive and determination, inspiration and involvement, aspiration and achievement - those are the qualities that we hope will emerge from the snapshots of life here at the Royal High School Bath. We are a leading independent Day and Boarding school of choice for girls aged 3-18.

From a group of giggling, three year old girls holding hands in the playground of our ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rated Nursery; to a revitalised Junior School where a passion for discovery and exploring new horizons is ignited; to our exceptionally high-achieving Senior School where lifelong friendships are forged and academic, sporting and personal triumphs are shared; and onto our dynamic Sixth Form College buzzing with confident, capable young women ready to take on the world, the RHS journey is a seamless one, with four life-enhancing experiences along the way.

This all-through, all-girls education is unique in Bath. We embrace all-round excellence and help every single girl to be happy and to be who she wants to be. We do this with a rich and exciting curriculum, with every opportunity for girls to focus on their strengths but also to develop their skills and talents across the broadest academic, social and personal spectrum. The school develops the confidence, capabilities and character needed to underpin success at university, throughout careers and in achieving ambitions in every aspect of life. These qualities are evident in the women who remain an integral part of the school’s global community through the RHS Alumnae network.

We are the only school within The Girls’ Day School Trust to offer boarding in addition to day provision and the only one to offer the International Baccalaureate at Sixth Form.

The Royal High School Bath isn’t a foundation for life, it is life, filled with fun and friendship and excitement, but also with risks and challenges that take courage and determination to overcome - and that is the essence of the learning process, aspiring to great heights, wanting to discover more, occasionally stumbling and ultimately using that experience to become better and stronger, with the confidence to reach even higher.

Academic rigour and a strong work ethic underpin ambition and achievement in a school, which champions tolerance, responsibility, commitment and respect for both the individual and society. Our girls discover what they can do well and learn to do it better than they ever thought possible. Those talents are nurtured by dedicated teaching staff and celebrated by their friends, their peers and by the school community as a whole.
