The Primary Years

To spark curiosity from an early age, we use a student-based learning framework in our primary school. This means we design learning experiences that recognise and respond to the individual needs of each of our students. In doing so, our primary students can absorb knowledge in a way that works best for them. 

We believe that real learning, especially at such a young age, shouldn't be limited to the classroom. ”Mr Bruce Saxby, Acting Head of Primary

To encourage our students to be as creative and stimulated as possible, we offer a broad range of co-curricular opportunities. RGS primary students can make the most of our extensive facilities, which include specialty music, art, computer and cooking rooms, an indoor multi-purpose hall and modern classrooms.

A balance between male and female teachers ensures your child will have high calibre role models to guide them through this important life phase. Specialist teachers provide in-depth knowledge in subject areas such as art, physical education, cooking, music, STEAM and Japanese.

With all this on offer, RGS primary students emerge from their primary schooling years as articulate, confident and resilient learners, ready to continue their education in the secondary school.
