The RGS Sport & PE Department is a strong, enthusiastic and forward thinking team, which comprises of full time PE specialists, residential sports tutors and a part time sports administrator.
All members of the department, as well as a large number of non PE staff, contribute to the excellent delivery of the national curriculum and BTEC Sport, as well as a full commitment to our extensive and rapidly expanding co-curricular sports programme.
The boys regularly compete in the national finals in many different sports. In recent years we have had boys who have gained international honours in rugby, hockey, fencing, rowing, gymnastics, golf, swimming, squash and athletics.
RGS sport has a proud tradition of maintaining a high standard in competitive schoolboy sport. With highly consistent results across all sports, RGS aims to give the best possible coaching and facilities and it expects the best in return, to continue this tradition.
With its origins in the 13th Century, the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe, was granted a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1562. Much has changed since, but RGS continues to enjoy a reputation as one of the leading state selective schools in the country having been consistently rated ‘outstanding’.
We have high academic standards, excellent examination results and consistently feature as one of the top 60 state schools in England. Almost all students progress to university with 15–20 attending Oxford or Cambridge each academic year. We offer a huge range of co-curricular experiences, the extent of which is, I believe, unparalleled in the state sector.
Our innovative teachers deliver a high-quality classroom experience underpinned by our RGS Ethos of Learning. Exceptional pastoral care ensures that, in a large school, every boy is known as an individual.
We encourage all Wycombiensians to be self-confident, positive, healthy and enquiring young men who acquire the qualities of tolerance and respectfulness embodied through a modesty of manner.
Most of our students are day boys. Boarding, however, has a unique capacity to shape the lives of young people and RGS offers this provision to 70 boys as one of 40 state boarding schools. Boarding plays a substantial role within the life of the School.
