Residential Staff
For boarders, each House has residential staff, including a housemistress and a tutor, who provide academic and personal support to the girls in years 7-11. Sixth formers have their own separate accommodation.
     Extra curricular activities include the Duke of Edinburgh Award Schemes, outwardbound courses and language trips, as well as a wide range of weekly clubs and societies.
     There are opportunities for ballet, modern dance, instrumental and vocal tuition as well as speech and drama. Indeed, drama is integral to the English curriculum in years 7-9, while the performing arts flourish at GCSE and at Advanced Level. All girls study music from Reception through to year nine.
     RMS follows the National Curriculum, and there is a strong emphasis on English and maths in years seven to nine, with specialist teaching in science and modern and classical languages.
     Educational visits include First World War battlefields and urban field studies. Creative talent can be expressed through art, textiles, music, drama and design technology.
     The future of the girls when they leave RMS is strongly catered for, with comprehensive careers advice available. The welfare of the girls is also a prime concern, and there are on site a chaplain, three nurses, a doctor and counsellor.
     Here is an institution which has encompassed four centuries. Chevalier Ruspini would have approved, and all Masons should be proud of their association with this outstanding development carried out in their name.
