Forces Families

Royal Russell supports British Military Families through their education by providing a 'home away from home' for pupils aged between 12 and 18. Pastoral care at Royal Russell has an excellent reputation for the exceptional care that we provide to each pupil and family at our school.

We create a safe, stable and secure environment for your child to flourish in both academically and socially. We recognise pupils as individuals, as well as part of a House. We understand that forces families require a stable and dependable education to empower their children to survive.  We also recognise that every family is different and can offer both a full boarding and a flexible boarding experience to suit your individual circumstances.

Our after school and weekend programme is filled with exciting opportunities for our pupils to develop as well as connect with pupils for outside their own class. Boarders master new skills and learn lifelong lessons and build friendships that help them to succeed in their adult lives. 

If you're a forces family and meet the eligibility criteria for the continuity of education allowance (CEA) we will be happy to create a bespoke payment schedule to illustrate the fees payable for your child/ren.
