The Royal School , Armagh was founded in 1608 by James I.  It has been regarded since then as one of the leading schools in Ireland and a school which achieves considerable academic success.  The school is co-educational with modern facilities.


The school welcomes children of all faiths and offers an excellent caring and learning environment for 650 pupils from the ages of 5 to 18 with accommodation for 90 boarders including a new dedicated sixth form boarding facility which provides an effective transitional step between school and university.  All pupils study for GCSE examinations and most continue to study for A-Levels and then progress to universities and colleges throughout the United Kingdom .


The school is situated in 27 acres of grounds.  It is close to the centre of Armagh - an ancient city which is widely renowned for its cultural, sporting and educational activities.  Features of the city include two Cathedrals, a Planetarium, an Astropark, attractive open spaces, excellent leisure facilities and fine Georgian buildings.  Armagh is about 45 minutes from the airport.


Courses are offered in 23 GCSE subjects and 20 A-Level subjects.  Facilities include science and technology laboratories/workshops, a computer suite, a lecture theatre, a study hall, a sixth form centre and a library.


School teams regularly participate in inter-school competitions.  Facilities for sport include playing fields for hockey, rugby and cricket, tennis courts, a running track, a squash court, a fitness room and a sports hall.  There is a wide range of non-sporting, extra-curricular facilities and school tours are regularly organised for visits throughout Europe .  Music is a particular strength of the School.



Mission Statement as agreed by the Board of Governors



The Royal School Armagh aims to provide its pupils with an education which in its wholeness will enable them to achieve their full potential in academic, social, moral and spiritual terms.  The values of the School, both implicitly and explicitly, reflect and are informed by the reformed tradition of the Christian faith.  The School welcomes the presence of pupils and staff of other Christian traditions, other world faiths and those with no religious convictions.
