The Royal School Armagh

College Hill Armagh Co. Armargh BT61 9DH

“The Royal School, Armagh was founded in 1608 by James I.  It has been regarded since then as one of the leading schools in Ireland and a school which achieves considerable academic success. The school is co-educational with modern facilities. 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 school welcomes children of all faiths and offers an excellent caring and learning environment of over 700 pupils from the ages of 5 to 18 with accommodation for 90 boarders including a new dedicated sixth form boarding facility which provides an effective transitional step between school and university.  All pupils study for GCSE examinations and the vast majority continue to study for A-Levels and then progress to universities and colleges throughout the United Kingdom.”
