Introduction

 

Located at Claines, RGS The Grange is one of the three junior schools of RGS Worcester. It occupies a 50-acre site, situated approximately 3 miles north of the Senior School. [1]

 

A co-educational facility, RGS The Grange is characterised by strong academic provision, delivered through a challenging curriculum which encompasses a wide range of subject areas such as maths, English, science, DT, IT, art, digital media, history, geography, sport, music and French.

 

The co-curricular ethos is centred on the efforts to encourage pupils to explore their capacity for all-round learning. An array of pursuits is on offer, ranging from choir, writing, construction and music theory to fencing, iPad and coding, yoga and chess.

 

In the most recent ISI Compliance Inspection for the school, it was concluded that The Grange successfully meets all criteria and hence no recommendations were made. According to ISI, the school provides a secure and stimulating learning environment, enabling children to nurture their sense for aesthetics while growing in character, intellect and overall well-being.

In line with the motto ‘From tiny acorns to great oaks’, pupils at The Grange face new situations and challenges with high levels of social and emotional awareness and hence thrive in all spheres of life throughout their later years.
