We are delighted to share with you something of the character and life of the Royal School Armagh; its stunning setting and the extensive range of facilities.
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.
The Royal School lies on a historic and beautiful 29 acre campus in the centre of the fine, Georgian, Cathedral City of Armagh. It offers a safe and secure environment with easy access to the island of Ireland’s major arterial routes and airports. It is one of the oldest schools in Ireland, the oldest in Northern Ireland and offers the largest coeducational boarding provision in Northern Ireland. Now into its fifth century its continual existence has borne witness to the turbulent history of these islands. Despite its age, the school’s vision is fixed firmly on the future and on ensuring that the young men and women who come here are equipped for a life of leadership in a world of rapid change.
Choosing a school is a big decision so why not come along and sample the atmosphere for yourself? You can either attend one of our Open Evenings or make an appointment to visit the school on another occasion?
We would be delighted to share with you the school’s achievements and to help you make the right choice.
