RGS Dodderhill is an independent girls’ school located near Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire. Founded in 1945 as Dodderhill School, it merged with the RGS Worcester family of schools in 2019. [1]


Although pupils’ strongest achievements are in the areas of sciences, English and mathematics, children who have an affinity towards art, music or performance are also very well-catered for. A varied sporting activities programme is on offer, challenging and engaging girls in a variety of competitive sports such as netball, football, cricket, hockey, athletics and gymnastics.


The small class sizes enable an extensive pastoral care provision, personalised and individualised so that each child’s needs and demands are instantly addressed. The family feel pervades the school’s community, allowing girls to access their Senior Years with a ‘can do’ attitude. [2]


Noted for its strong academic record, RGS Dodderhill actively promotes children’s personal development and secures their well-being while simultaneously boosting their appreciation of culture. As a result, they grow in self-esteem and an awareness of their abilities, entering the next stages of their lives with confidence, strong academic qualifications and a refined aesthetics sensibility.
