Our school dates back to 1788, when Bartholomew Ruspini established an orphanage in London to support 15 girls. The difference Ruspini’s radical vision has made to thousands of individuals throughout the School’s history is profound.

The School has changed and evolved, and yet as we look to the future of the school, we aspire to broaden access to RMS so that girls from all socio-economic backgrounds will benefit from the fantastic education the School offers, just as girls did when Ruspini first opened the School.

To achieve our vision, we need the support of the entire RMS community. Join us in building an enduring legacy that echoes our founder’s vision. Every gift, whatever its magnitude, will have a tangible, life-changing impact.


RMS has given her our daughter opportunity to learn and to go further than she could ever have imagined. She is flourishing; she just loves being at the school. What the School has done for us is unbelievable.
