EDUCATION THE DUKE OF YORK’S ROYAL MILITARY SCHOOL THE DUKE OF YORK’S ROYAL MILITARY SCHOOL UPHOLDS ITS TRADITIONS WITH PRIDE AND OFFERS STUDENTS AGED 11 TO 18 A UNIQUE AND ICONIC PLACE TO STUDY – SET IN 150 ACRES OF COUNTRYSIDE NEAR THE COAST, FULL AND WEEKLY BOARDING IS AVAILABLE. The school has recently been reaccredited by the British Council with the highly sought after International Award Accreditation, and, in addition to a wide academic choice, ‘Dukies’ enjoy a full and active life that includes an excellent range of sports, music, drama and the chance to represent their school at special events. Students also participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, which includes camping at the Brecon Beacons. Centenary House is the dedicated sixth form centre where students studying for their A - Levels have en-suite accommodation. In a busy boarding school environment it is important that students have the opportunity for downtime, so Centenary House has four common rooms, each with SKY television, comfortable seating and basic cooking facilities. Every sixth former holds at least one position of responsibility at the school too, whether as a mentor, as a prefect, or within the ceremonial duty system. Open evening for sixth form is Thursday 16th November between 6pm and 8pm, and open morning for whole school is on Saturday 10th March 2018 from 9am to 12.30pm. To book either of these events, please complete the online booking form on the school’s website: www.doyrms.com. 80 per cent academic and 50 per cent sport scholarships are available for high achievers in the sixth form, students don’t have to come from a military family to study at the school, and there is no expectation for them to go into the forces when they leave after their A-Levels.
