About Royal Grammar School

Located in the town of Guildford, Surrey, the Royal Grammar School is an independent day school offering a selective education for boys aged 11-18. The secondary school has places for around 900 pupils, many of whom attend the school’s sixth form. 

The Royal Grammar School, originally known as The Free School, was first established in the early 16th century, and it did not accept fees between 1944 and 1977. Despite its age and historical importance, the school has benefited from extensive redevelopment and modernisation, including an updated sixth-form centre and science labs.

The Royal Grammar School takes a great deal of pride in the personal development of its pupils, and expects the highest standards in terms of work ethic, behaviour and academic performance.
