A huge, warm RGS welcome to new students

What a momentous day for students and staff as we welcomed our new Year 7, 9 and 12 students to the RGS family on induction day. Whether playing football on the green, cooling off in the library, joining new clubs and societies or chatting on the grass, everyone was busy making new friends, while boarding students had already started to get to know each other as they settled into in their respective houses. Thank you to school officers, above, for helping welcome our wonderful new starters.
