The Royal Alexandra and Albert School offers scholarships to applicants who demonstrate leadership qualities as well as those who excel in music or sports.  As a school we place great emphasis on academic achievement whilst cultivating pupils’ abilities outside the classroom. 

The school offers opportunities for pupils to develop leadership skills in many ways including the Sports Leadership programme, the Global Leader Award, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Cadets and many other ways.  This is helped by the fact that we have pupils from age 7 – many Sixth Formers enjoy leading activities for younger pupils.

In 2020 we became the first state school in England to become and All-Steinway School.  The School will be joining an elite group of 25 schools in England that use exclusively Steinway pianos for music tuition.   By offering music scholarships we aim to attract pupils who would benefit from the unrivalled opportunities presented by our Music Department working alongside Steinway musicians.

Within our extensive grounds and parkland setting, we have excellent sporting facilities including 6 rugby pitches, cricket pitch, all-weather sports pitch, all-weather running strip and riding stables.  Sports scholarships are offered to pupils who will benefit from a top-class training regime, specialist coaching and facilities.
