RGS Dodderhill is an independent day school for girls in Worcestershire. Part of the RGS Worcester family of schools since 2019, RGS Dodderhill maintains a strong academic record despite its relatively small size. Since it doesn’t have a Sixth Form, many girls continue their education at RGS Worcester.


RGS Dodderhill School’s rich programme of extracurricular activities ensures that girls develop or improve skills in competitive sports such as netball, hockey, rounders, athletics and gymnastics, and make the most of creative opportunities such as LAMDA courses and music lessons taught by specialists.


Rated as ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Excellent’ in all areas by both ISI and Ofsted inspectors, RGS Dodderhill maximises girls’ potential and self-esteem by encouraging a love of learning and high academic achievement, hence fully preparing them for the world of work.
