The Royal Alexandra and Albert School is a low price state mixed boarding school in the South East area of England that doesn't compromise on quality education and surroundings. The grounds boast 260 acres of beautiful English countryside and is a lovely place to study and learn in the UK.

Mixed boarding schools in England offer a unique educational experience for students by combining the traditional elements of a boarding school with a diverse student body. Our school offers a variety of academic, extracurricular, and social opportunities for students to grow and develop. Here are some of the key features of the Royal Alexandra and Albert School:

  1. Academic excellence – We offer a challenging and rigorous academic program, with a strong focus on preparing students for further education and the outside world. We have smaller class sizes and a high teacher-to-student ratio than many none-boarding schools, which allows for more personalised attention and support. The Boarding School’s academic results are consistently high-performing in key government measures at GCSE; and our Sixth Formers have secured places at some of the country’s top universities.
  2. Diverse student body – Mixed boarding schools attract students from a variety of cultural, socio-economic, and national backgrounds. This creates a diverse and inclusive community where students can learn from, and with, each other. We also have a strong international program, with students coming from countries around the world, not just England.
  3. Extracurricular activities – We offer a wide range of extracurricular activities, including sports, music, drama, and clubs and organisations. These activities allow students to explore their interests and develop new skills, as well as providing learning and experience opportunities for leadership and teamwork. We also have strong community service programs, giving students the chance to give back to the local community.
  4. Student support – At the Royal Alexandra and Albert School, we realise that the transition to boarding school can be challenging, and therefore offer a variety of support services to help our students adjust. These can include academic support, counselling, and a range of wellness programs.
  5. Location – We offer the convenience of being close to the capital of England, the city of London, while still providing a safe and supportive environment for students to live and learn. London is a vibrant and diverse part of the UK with a wealth of cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities.
  6. Flexi-boarding – Some of our students are flexi-boarders, which means they stay at the school for an extended period of time, then return home in the evenings.

In conclusion, our mixed boarding school offers a unique and enriching educational experience for students. We have a strong academic program, diverse student body, extracurricular activities, and student support services. Our boarding ethos is one which supports the holistic achievement and welfare of the individual within the close-knit community of each boarding house and the wider boarding community.
