Word From The Head

Head Photo

From Morgan Thomas, Headteacher


I am delighted to introduce you to The Royal Alexandra and Albert School. We are an inclusive and ambitious school where every member of staff cares deeply about our pupils. Our strong boarding ethos is founded upon values that seek to foster independence, strength of character and academic success. We combine high expectations with meaningful, personalised support to ensure that our young people are happy and successful.

This is a place like no other: we are a state boarding school that provides life-enriching opportunities for all pupils to rival those of the independent sector. Our pupils have access to excellent facilities that include an equestrian centre, a swimming pool and extensive sporting arenas. The school is set in 260 acres of beautiful parkland landscaped by Capability Brown, but is close enough to major transport hubs, and London, to ensure ease of accessibility.

Pupils are taught a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum by highly skilled teachers to ensure that they are able to progress to their chosen education and career path. They also benefit from first class wraparound care provided by compassionate, knowledgeable boarding staff. We take the time to get to know our young people so that we can best meet their needs in their ‘home-from-home’. Our co-curricular offer is substantial and progressive, and our young people are able to experience exciting new adventures, as well as hone existing skills.

The broad age range of our pupils, with boys and girls aged 7-18, provides continuity and stability for the children. It also provides genuine diversity. We have pupils from all over the world and from all walks of life: flexi-boarding pupils who live locally learn alongside pupils whose families are overseas or whose parents are in the military and diplomatic services, as well as pupils who are supported by the School’s Foundation.

Our students make us proud: they develop confidence, life skills and learn to lead others. This means that they leave our doors having grown in ability and intellect, ready to make a sustained and productive contribution to their local, national and international communities.

I look forward to welcoming you to this vibrant and dynamic community in person.

Open Days, Visits & Events

14-10-2023 - Open Morning

The best way to find out about this school is to visit. We hold open events during the year where families can look around and get a better understanding of what we offer as a boarding school.

Every year there are four Open Mornings on Saturdays – one in September, one in October, one in March and one in May where there will be a presentation followed by a tour with some of our current pupils. As we have Saturday morning school, you will see the school on a typical school day. Your tour guides will be able to answer any questions you have about lessons, activities and boarding.
