School Life


The RGS has a proud history and tradition of sporting provision, whether it is for the elite athlete or the beginner. Sport plays a major part in the curricular, extra curricular and social life of the school.

Sport at the Royal Grammar School fosters boys of all abilities, all of which are equally important to us. The school’s wide range of sporting activities includes inter-school matches, country and national competitions.

Our sport facilities are impressive, extensive and includes rugby pitches, indoor and outdoor cricket nets, tennis courts, astro-turf pitch, fitness suite, sports hall, grass cricket squares and an indoor swimming pool.

All members of the department, as well as a huge number of other staff, contribute to the excellent delivery of the National Curriculum and examination PE, as well as a full commitment to our extensive & rapidly expanding extra curricular sports programme.

The boys regularly compete in the national finals in many different sports. In recent years we have had boys who have gained international honours in rugby, hockey, fencing, hockey, rowing, gymnastics, golf, swimming, squash and athletics.

RGS sport has a proud tradition of maintaining a high standard in competitive schoolboy sport. With highly consistent results across all sports, RGS aims to give the best possible coaching and facilities and it expects the best back, to continue this tradition.

All students have access to recreational sports clubs where the emphasis is on friendly competition and exercise. These clubs run before school at lunchtimes and after school.
