Welcome to the Junior School

As Headmaster of the Junior School, I believe that we are uniquely placed to offer your child the very best educational experience.

Children who join Royal Russell embark on an exciting and fulfilling educational journey where they develop and flourish both academically and socially.

With our team of highly talented and dedicated staff, broad and enriched curriculum and wide range of experiences and activities, we are able to inspire and challenge all our children and identify and nurture their individual talents.  We ensure they achieve to the best of their ability and equip our girls and boys with the skills for independent, life-long learning.

We offer small class sizes, a well-resourced environment and extensive and impressive on-site facilities for sport, drama and music within our stunning 110 acre estate, shared with our Senior School. 

Royal Russell is a happy, sociable and unpretentious school, where pupils' effort and achievements are valued, recognised and rewarded.  Our girls and boys are confident, enthusiastic individuals, with lots of character and energy, who enjoy their time at school.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you what makes Royal Russell such an exceptional school.

Mr James C Thompson

Pupils throughout the junior school and senior school are particularly well educated and show excellent levels of subject knowledge.

Pupils have excellent levels of skill and understanding in numeracy, literacy and science. They present their work with a high degree of pride in its appearance and organisation.

The most able children are appropriately challenged by the activities provided, and are able to think critically and independently.  The younger children communicate effectively and listen attentively.
