School Life


The Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe, is a selective state school for boys with a Sixth Form of approximately 400.

Our school policy is for students to study a minimum of four subjects in Year 12 in order to enrich their knowledge, develop their skills and properly access subjects they are not familiar with at GCSE level. In addition, they may also opt to study the EPQ or a new language as a 5th subject and must follow a broad co-curricular programme. The majority of students will then study three subjects in Year 13 to full A level with 20% continuing to study four.

Our predicted grades are based on the student’s performance during their time in the Sixth Form to date and most particularly on the results they gained in the Year 12 end of year school exams.

For university entry in 2021: most students have missed 4 months of face to face contact in Year 12.  Work was set and marked remotely with limited opportunity for interaction. The usual broad co-curricular programme, including preparation for university applications, has been extremely limited due to C-19 and will remain so throughout Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021.
