The first cohort of pupils at the The Royal School in Haslemere to sit exams since 2019 achieved a strong set of A-level results ensuring they were ‘future ready.’

The results saw 92 per cent of students achieve A*- A for their EPQ, a popular option for many at The Royal School.

They cited the high-quality online provision, the flexi boarding with extra academic support in the run-up to exams and the consistent, individualised care from teachers as reasons for their success.

Suzy D will study English at Nottingham University after being awarded A*, A*, A, A in EPQ (Extended Project Qualification).

She said: “I cannot put into words how special The Royal is.

“The teachers, community, and friends I have made over the past eight years have inspired me to follow my dreams and be prepared to face the future confidently.”

Among the highest performers were Nick E, awarded A*, A, A, who will be reading politics and international relations at Birmingham University.

He said: “What a place The Royal has been! I could not have asked for better teachers who have gone the extra mile to support me achieve my personal best.”

Pippa Smithson, head at The Royal School, said: “I am delighted our pupils’ results are opening doors for them to exciting, successful futures.

“Most importantly, I am proud of the fine young people they have become.

“They are a talented cohort with an impressive can-do attitude, warmth, and confidence that will stand them in excellent stead for university life and beyond.

“Our ‘future-ready’ ethos provides opportunities beyond the traditional curriculum to equip students with confidence and resourcefulness to be practically, emotionally and intellectually ready for the future.”

The different courses Royal students go on to read at university reflect a school culture that celebrates individuality and diversity.

This year, courses range from traditional degrees such as history and English to highly-specialist degrees such as software engineering and medical sciences to vocational degrees like journalism and communications.
