The Education of the whole person
It was T.S. Eliot who said: “It is only by taking the risk of going too far that we know how far we can go”. The school is dedicated to whole person education and to providing experiences both inside and outside the classroom which aim to extend pupils in every possible way, leading to increased self-esteem and confidence.
The Royal School is wholly committed to whole person education. Pupils acquire confidence by being encouraged into new experiences outside their comfort zone. Increased self-esteem accrues from successful participation in such activities. In light of this, as many extra-curricular activities as possible are offered by the staff at the school.
Our Mission Statement
The Royal School Armagh aims to provide its pupils with an education which in its wholeness will enable them to achieve their full potential in academic, social, moral and spiritual terms. The values of the School, both implicitly and explicitly, reflect and are informed by the reformed tradition of the Christian faith. The School warmly welcomes the presence of pupils and staff of other Christian traditions, other world faiths and those with no religious convictions.
