About Royal Russell School

Thank you for your interest in joining the Royal Russell team

Royal Russell is an Independent Day and Boarding School for boys and girls aged 3 to 18.

Royal Russell is different by design and offers an exceptional education as a family school by valuing what makes each pupil distinctively brilliant. Pupils are supported to realise their vision of success in an open community that reflects the real world and celebrates all achievements.

Located just 8 mins from East Croydon station, pupils enjoy the 110-acre campus, which contains incredible facilities to inspire learning and personal growth; from cutting-edge science labs, extensive sporting facilities, Chapel, Great Hall, spacious dining areas, Performing Arts Centre and beautiful Houses surrounded by green open space.

The School offers bespoke educational pathways to support children and is guided by expert tutors, teachers, coaches and pastoral teams.

There are more than 300 pupils in the Junior School, and over 800 pupils in the Senior School including approximately 250 pupils in the Sixth Form. The School also has around 180 boarders staying in the boarding houses on campus.  Pupils benefit from learning in a co-educational setting and as part of an open community that reflects the real world, celebrating both individual and collective achievements.

Royal Russell was founded in 1853 as a charity to look after orphans of families from the textile trades and is proud to have enjoyed Royal Patronage from its foundation, and for having Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as the School’s Patron during her reign.

What people say about us

The experience both our children have enjoyed at RR goes beyond education and has resulted in a genuine love of their school days and respect and affection of the teaching staff, and I believe their ties to the school will prove to be lifelong.

At all ages, pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is excellent, they are self-aware, confident, tolerant and respectful. Relationships throughout the school are excellent.
