Description Royal Hospital School

Royal Hospital School is one of the leading independent boarding schools for students from 11 to 18 years old. The institution is located in Suffolk County, near the bustling city of Ipswich (5 miles), in a picturesque and calm countryside.

Royal Hospital School was founded in Greenwich in 1712 - initially its profile was only young men's education, mathematics and navigation. Then the institution switched to a mixed form of studying and adopted a classic, full model of British education. At the current location, near the banks of the Stour River, the campus has been functioning since 1933.

The total number of students reaches 700 people, and foreign students come here with great pleasure - here they are attended by representatives of more than 20 countries. The quality of education is emphasized by graduation statistics: approximately 90% of graduates enterwithout problems the selected universities of Great Britain, Europe and the world.

Each student has a personal tutor who closely follows his progress and achievements. If necessary, international students can use the services of a coordinator - he connects parents and children, helps them to interact - and also attends a supporting course of a foreign language EAL or EFL.
