School Life



The Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe, is a selective state school for boys with a Sixth Form of approximately 415.

Our school policy is for students to study 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 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 2023: all students missed four months of face to face contact in Year 10 and had limited teaching provision during that time due to many technical issues for both teachers and students. They missed a further three months of face to face contact in Year 11; remote provision was better.
