Boarding Prizes

I would like to state that I am so proud of our boarders this year. They have coped so well with all the pandemic has thrown at them, and it is hard to single out individuals. All have done so well with various levels of self-isolation, online school, lockdown with half of the boarders at home and half being able to attend boarding. Despite all of this rarely ever a moan and just loads of enthusiasm and energy. It is truly humbling to see how resilient they have been. I have every confidence that academically the Yr 13s and Yr 11s will gain some exceptional results, and we wish those leaving boarding and RGS the very best for their future.

Jon Scourfield, Head of Boarding
