The Royal High School Bath has been shortlisted for the prestigious TES Schools Awards 2017.

The junior school has been included in the shortlist for the award for Creative School of the Year.

The TES Schools Awards, also known as TESSA’s is run by The Times Educational Supplement and is in its ninth year. The awards celebrate the innovation, achievement and dedication of the staff in schools across the country.

The Royal High Junior School is the only school within the south west to be shortlisted in this category, and the only Bath school in any category.

Head of the Junior School, Heidi Hughes, says “I am absolutely delighted that The Royal High Junior School has been shortlisted for this award. At RHJS we teach a little differently; we truly believe that creativity is at the heart of enjoyable and effective learning, and to have this recognised by the TES Schools Awards is fantastic”.

To see the creativity in action for yourself, you can visit the Junior School Open House on Thursday 18 May, or schedule a bespoke tour or taster day for your daughter. Call the Junior School Administrator, Diana Rejiester, on: 01225 422931.
