The Royal School Haslemere is an independent day and boarding school located on two sites in Haslemere (51°06′17″N 0°43′25″W / 51.1048°N 0.7237°W / 51.1048; -0.7237) and Hindhead (51°06′15″N 0°44′33″W / 51.1042°N 0.7426°W / 51.1042; -0.7426) in Surrey, England. It was formerly a girls' school and is now a diamond school, meaning the junior department and sixth form are coeducational while the senior school is segregated.

History[edit]

It was created from the 1995 amalgamation of the Royal Naval School for Girls (founded 1840) and The Grove School (founded 1864).

In November 2002, students from the school paid tribute to the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II by performing a song, Anthem 21, as part of a festival in London in honour of Britain's veterans which was broadcast on BBC One and BBC Radio 2. [1]
