Though schools are primarily about people, they work better in quality buildings. Having occupied its present location since 1906, the Royal Grammar School is very fortunate to have fine core buildings, clustered round a magnificent hall. In recent years, however, the RGS has continued to invest heavily to ensure it has the finest facilities of any school in the north of England. The school is currently well into an exciting multi-million pound building programme which has already seen some exciting new developments take place and there are plenty more to come.
The school has invested heavily to ensure it has the finest IT facilities and all classrooms have interactive whiteboards and projectors. There are 13 computer suites available to students and there is wi-fi accessible across the school.
Our computer science dpeartment (Founded in 2018) is well stocked with physical computing equipment and agile devices.
Our students travel to school from all over the region and the RGS is well located, close to the centre of Newcastle and a two minute walk from Jesmond Metro Station.
