Excellence Through Endeavour


We work closely with our parents to ensure that every child achieves their very best, in a happy, caring, calm and purposeful learning environment.

We have a comprehensive transition programme - with a variety of events planned over the coming months.

Our transition programme ensures that our newest students already feel a part of the RTS community before officially joining us.
