“RGS provided me with a great mix of work and fun throughout my GCSE’s and always showed us that working hard reaps rewards. The strong sense of community at RGS was even more important during the last 18 months, I’m sure this helped in supporting us through our GCSE courses – knowing the teachers were pulling out all the stops to make lessons as fun, inspiring and motivating as possible, while working remotely. Some of my favourite memories so far have been made within RGS classrooms, we have great teaching groups who have now become good friends.”
“During the last three years of our GCSE course, I have received a vast amount of support by the RGS teachers who have been amazing by sacrificing their time to ensure we are confident in our learning.
