Royal Masonic School for Girls

RMS has proudly educated girls since 1788. Our history is long and distinguished, but our focus is firmly on the future, and we never stop questioning what skills and attributes young women need to thrive in the 21st century.

This pursuit of innovation and excellence, combined with a relentless commitment to educating the whole person, is what defines an RMS education today.

Life at RMS is designed for and around our students, and their capacity to learn, lead, express themselves and build deep relationships with their friends never fails to impress us. Our academic vision is ambitious and innovative, and we are wholly committed to the pursuit of excellence. Through our broad and exciting co-curricular programme, we provide ample opportunity for students to explore their passions and find their niche. Most importantly of all, we provide exceptional, pupil-centric pastoral care. RMS is a genuinely kind school; one that understands life isn’t always easy.

So who is an RMS girl? The students who thrive here are enthusiastic and get stuck in. They are active learners who readily hone their talents and they are resilient and warm-hearted; characterised by integrity rather than entitlement. It would be unfair to expect all of this from the off, but with the support of our experienced, dedicated and kind staff, they will become young women that we are all proud of.

Results
Our results are consistently good both at GCSE and A level (2022 – GCSE 69% Grade 9 – 7, A level 55% A*/A). Popular university destinations include Durham, Leeds, Exeter, Southampton, UCL, Nottingham and Oxbridge. The courses pursued are as diverse as the students themselves and range from art to neuroscience and conservation to engineering.

Location

RMS is extremely fortunate in its location. The stunning 300-acre campus is only 15 miles from Heathrow Airport and a 30-minute train ride into Central London. RMS is ideally placed for boarding and day pupils alike. Students can also travel to school using our extensive coach services.

The school offers wraparound care for our younger pupils and the library is open until 9pm for Senior students. The Dining Hall caters for breakfast, lunch and tea for those wishing to take part in the many after school activities.

Scholarships and Bursaries

RMS offers academic, art, drama, music and sport scholarships at 11+ and 16 +. Scholarships do not exceed 25% of fees but maybe supplemented with means tested-financial support.

Means-tested bursaries however are not conditional on scholarship success, RMS offers a number of fully-funded transformational bursaries to girls joining in Year 7 or Sixth Form.

Boarding

The school offers flexi, weekly and full boarding from Year 5. The boarding community is vibrant with over 20 nationalities represented, and 50% from the UK.  The majority of our boarders are full boarders. As we do not have Saturday lessons boarding is a real home-from -home environment, weekends are filled with activities and time to study.

Bursaries & Scholarships

The Royal Masonic School for Girls is committed to demonstrating that we provide public benefit and we regard it as educationally beneficial to widen access to the education we offer; this has always been a distinctive feature of RMS whose foundation was essentially charitable.

Scholarships and exhibitions are offered to encourage and reward excellence; they are awarded in recognition of outstanding achievement or promise in a particular sphere and involve financial support up to a maximum of 25% of the annual fee. Scholars will be given regular opportunities for prominence and leadership within their given specialism. Academic scholars will be expected to maintain high standards of work across the curriculum.

Bursaries provide financial assistance to enable suitable girls whose parents could not otherwise afford the fees to benefit, or continue to benefit, from an education at The Royal Masonic School for Girls. These awards are subject to means testing.

The number of awards made each year will vary according to the quality and circumstances of candidates and the availability of funds. Unlike many other schools, RMS does not have a separate endowment fund for such fees assistance which is all financed directly from school income within a budget authorised by the Governors. Please note that, due to the limited funds available, it is not usual for Bursaries to be awarded to pupils below Year 7.
