Royal Russell School educates over 1000 girls and boys between the ages of 3 and 18 and is situated on a beautiful green campus of 110 acres in the Shirley Hills near Croydon, only 30 minutes from Central London. We have over 150 boarding students in the Senior School, and are proud of our day and boarding facilities that rank amongst the best in the South of England. Our pupils, parents and staff experience a warm and friendly environment with strong pastoral care for every pupil alongside a comprehensive co-curricular and enrichment programme. In March 2016 the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) judged the school as ‘excellent’ in all areas and in October 2018 we successfully passed a full ISI compliance inspection.
Mathematics is one of the strengths of the school, with consistently excellent outcomes and high value added at GCSE and A level. Maths is the most popular A level subject within the school, and students consistently provide positive feedback about their Maths learning. As well as delivering great lessons, the department provides additional stretch and challenge for the most able through extension opportunities, and also provides small-group support for students who need extra time to develop their skills.
