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.

Summer Learning


We sent an email on 31 March 2021 containing details on our Management Information System - Arbor and how to access it and use it. The video linked in the email shows you what to expect when you log on for the first time. You will also have been sent an email direct from Arbor with your log in details and password. Please complete the enrolement process as soon as possible.

Please do take the time to watch the video and log in. You will use Arbor throughout your time with RTS so it is vital that you take the time to log in and familiarise yourself with it. We would like you to update your contact details, add at least 2 emergency contacts, add any medical information that we need to know about your child, and how they will travel to school amongst other details.
