It is the only school in Bath to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Extra curricular activities: RHSB girls get involved in just about everything offered on the extensive list of clubs and activities, during lunchtime and after school. Whether it’s cricket or French, swimming or science club, debating or digital photography, the school encourages girls to try something new. They meet challenges, develop passions, have fun and make new groups of friends.

Pastoral care: Pastoral care and academic development go hand in hand. Girls perform best when they are happy and secure, so the caring and supportive community gives girls a real sense of belonging. Student wellbeing is a key priority for Royal High School Bath and the school understands the pressures, uncertainties and challenges moving from childhood to adulthood. The pastoral care aims to nurture and support each student throughout their academic career, making sure every girl has a positive experience. Students have access to in-house counselling provided by a UKCP registered psychotherapist and a MBACP registered counsellor who both specialise in young people, as well as a wellbeing coordinator, who is on hand to listen and support.

Outstanding characteristics: The school is a mix of day and boarding girls, a happy, thriving community, free from stereotypes. The girls build confidence and high self-esteem, whilst fostering the RHSB learner qualities; creative, brave, sparky, inquisitive, collaborative, reflective, underpinned by the core value of kindness. Royal High School Bath is part of The Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) which has 25 UK schools and academies nationwide. RHSB is an innovative, high-achieving school, providing a wonderful environment for girls to excel academically, thrive emotionally and develop socially. The Royal High Prep School is situated in the beautiful grounds of Cranwell House in Weston, with a dynamic curriculum and opportunities for outdoor learning, which fosters an interest in ecology and conservation. Girls develop a deeper understanding of their studies, to help them see the connections within and between disciplines.
