We know that success and enjoyment outside the classroom breeds confidence and self-belief within the classroom, and throughout their time at RMS, our pupils are encouraged to give everything a go.

Unless they try what is on offer, they may never know what they could have learnt, who they could have met, or how much fun they could have had. If your child wants to travel the world, discover new experiences or extend their talents and interests, they will be given every opportunity to do so at RMS.

Clubs

There are over 120 extra-curricular clubs and activities running every week in subjects as varied as Astronomy and Aerobics, Debating and Dance, Cookery and Army Cadets, Philosophy and Photography. Opportunities for leadership and learning, mental and physical challenges all operate alongside sports and the arts.

Trips

Students in all year groups are offered countless opportunities for travel, both in the UK and overseas. Trips have recently included exchanges in Asia and Canada, European language trips, Geography and Science trips to Iceland, Mexico and Indonesia, History trips to Vietnam and Germany, and Arts trips to the USA, Spain and Netherlands. We also support and raise money for a school in Ghana, and students travel here frequently to help at the school, and to see for themselves where the money they have raised is being spent. Experiences such as these help to make our pupils more aware of their place in the world, and to appreciate the value of diversity and difference.

Sport

Sport is an important aspect of life at RMS. All pupils are encouraged to participate and to improve their performance, no matter what their starting point may be, and success at every level is celebrated. We are fortunate to have an enviable array of facilities, including an all-weather pitch, 6-hole golf course, sports hall, fitness suite and indoor swimming pool, as well as 300 acres of parkland to explore. We field competitive teams in Netball, Hockey, Swimming, Gymnastics, Tennis, Rounders and Athletics, and also have links with local sports clubs to support pupils interested in Golf, Badminton, Kickboxing, Skiing and Sailing.

The Arts

Whether a pupil is a passionate amateur or considering a future in the arts, RMS will give her the courage to explore her creativity. Our Art Department is able to facilitate exploration of a vast range of artistic mediums and regularly exhibits pupil work in exhibitions.

Opportunities to perform as a soloist, as part of a rock band, orchestra, choir and ensemble group are plentiful, and our pupils are encouraged to take part in one of our many theatrical performances. Our senior singers and instrumentalists have undertaken international tours and a number of our musicians have succeeded in gaining scholarships at prestigious conservatoires.

We also produce countless sell-out productions ranging from Shakespeare to Sondheim. Our state-of-the-art facilities rival a professional Drama School with access to a green screen, recording studio, and brand new theatre ‘The Space’.
