RGS Guildford

The School’s aim is to encourage the growth of intellectual curiosity, independence, creativity and passion for learning within a scholarly community.

Located in the centre of the historic town of Guildford the RGS dates from 1509. In the last 500 years much has changed, however our pride in our school values remains a constant.

We successfully combine tradition with an open minded, forward-thinking approach to education suitable for the twenty-first century. We provide an education from 3 years old through to 18.

From the Prep School onwards, we foster an academic boldness that is essential to encouraging curiosity and creativity – an
insistence on how to think, not what to think. This is at the very heart of the RGS ethos.
