Royal High School Bath

Bath  |  Approx 600  | 3-18 years

Providing an outstanding, girl-centred, contemporary education in the beautiful city of Bath.


We’re proud to be the only boarding school in the Girls’ Day School Trust, the leading network of independent girls’ schools in the UK.

As a GDST school, we specialise in girls’ education and preparing our students to succeed in today’s fast-paced world. Our new £2m Steinway Music School, newly renovated boarding houses and brand new art block highlight our commitment to our students’ success. Whether our girls go on to be a music producer, a civil engineer or a CEO, we support each and every one with their individual ambitions.

Mrs Kate Reynolds, Head of School, said: “Girls’ schools have a very important role to play in enabling young women to reach their full potential and make their mark on the world. The balance of a nurturing yet challenging school environment is what makes us so successful here at Royal High. Our girls are treated as individuals and are inspired to be successful young women of the future.”

Royal High School boasts exceptional academic results and our girls are adventurous in both their thinking and their ambitions. With a reputation as supportive and stimulating, our girls realise new talents, fulfil their potential and go on to have bright futures.

We’re the only school in Bath to offer our Sixth Form girls a choice of A-level and IB pathways. They get the choice to carve out their own exciting futures and we support them on their way. This year, 86% of our girls met the entry criteria for one of their chosen universities with 75% accepting their first-choice university. 2020 has been another strong year for STEM subjects with over a third of our girls going on to study courses as diverse as Medical Bioscience at Imperial College, Physics at Kings College London, Civil Engineering at Sheffield and Industrial Design and Technology at Loughborough.

We’re proud to offer our students the option of full, weekly and flexible boarding to suit their needs. Our boarding houses are home to girls from across the UK, and globally, making a truly diverse learning institution. We make sure our boarders are part of a welcoming community with an exciting evening and weekend activities programme to enjoy.

Our School House is home to boarders aged 11-16 years and is located in our stunning neo-Gothic main building. With spacious common rooms, quiet study areas and fashionable mezzanine bedrooms, our girls are supported both academically and pastorally. Gloucester House offers Sixth Formers an exclusive space to socialise, study and enjoy their home from home. Here, girls benefit from having more independence, while still remaining an integral part of our school community.
