About The Royal School Wolverhampton

The Royal School Wolverhampton is a co-educational, all-through free school based in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, for students aged 4-19. The school is non-selective and non-denominational.   

The Royal School was founded in 1850 as an orphanage by a local philanthropist and businessman, John Lees.    

Boarders can join the school from age 10 upwards and stay in one of its single-sex boarding houses. Boarding accommodation is in spacious and well-equipped 25-acre grounds surrounded by woodlands, offering a secure and peaceful environment with the convenience of an urban setting.

Values and vision 

The Royal School Wolverhampton aims for pupils to grow into confident and mature young adults with an awareness of their own potential, alongside an understanding and appreciation of their wider community. It has an extended school day, with its academic timetable running alongside a busy programme of extracurricular activity.   

The Royal School is home to students of many different nationalities, which it believes adds to the diverse learning experience of pupils and their effective preparation for the world outside of school. Teachers provide a unique cultural, academic and sporting mix that plays a vital role in every child’s success. The school has a long-standing tradition of a friendly, competitive house system and gives seniors the opportunity to take on leadership roles through the Duke of Edinburgh scheme and Combined Cadet Force.
