School profile

The Royal Hospital School (RHS) is set in 200 acres of stunning Suffolk countryside overlooking the River Stour. Located approximately one hour from London and Cambridge, RHS is a leading independent, co-educational boarding and day school, rooted in 300 years of naval heritage but providing a full and broad education fit for the modern world. The school’s ethos is understanding each young person’s strengths, to help them to make the right choices at the right time, navigating through their critical formative years and ensuring their education becomes the foundation for their happiness and success.

RHS achieved the highest grading possible of ‘Excellence’ in all categories in the most recent ISI Educational Quality Inspection. This year a commitment to the wellbeing of pupils, parents and staff led to them being granted the prestigious Wellbeing Award for Schools. In addition, they were one of five finalists for 'Co-Educational School of the Year' in the Independent School of the Year Awards 2022.

Academic Families Director speaking to a Kazakh student

Choosing the best education for your child leads many families to consider British schools and universities. However, it is not an easy decision to make.

Our team works hard to understand the needs and strengths of your child, match them to the UK boarding school best suited to their needs, and support them throughout their time in the UK.

Quality you can trust

Academic Families has personal and professional experience with boarding schools. Many of our staff attended boarding schools themselves when they were young or have worked in them. We have all lived overseas and most of us are mothers, so we understand how important it is to find the very best education for every child no matter where that might be in the world.

From our headquarters in Edinburgh to our local staff across the UK, our team regularly visits hundreds of British schools. Our excellent knowledge of the UK education system, accreditation by the Boarding School Association (BSA) and certification from the British Council means we understand UK boarding education from the inside and out, and know how to ensure the best education for each child.

In addition, our guardianship service has been Gold accredited by AEGIS (the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) since 2016 and also by the BSA, so you know, with Academic Families, you're guaranteed to have the best local support anywhere in the UK.

Moreover, our team are trained MHFA Mental Health First Aiders so we are qualified to support our students with any wellbeing and mental health concerns.
