Royal school dungannon


The Royal School Dungannon is a co-educational voluntary grammar school in County Tyrone, with a proud history that dates back to 1614.  The school is set in its own private grounds on the edge of a traditional market town. Classrooms are large and well resourced, with specialist teaching facilities in the Sciences, Design & Technology, Music and Food Technology, as well as extensive computer provision, and sporting facilities such as a modern sports hall and multi-gym, a floodlit astro-turf pitch, shooting range, rugby and hockey pitches and tennis courts.

There is a strong boarding community housed within the school grounds, offering five and seven day boarding options for both local and overseas pupils. All facilities have been recently refurbished to offer high-quality, modern facilities which create a home-from-home atmosphere.  Boarders are cared for by a dedicated team of teachers, matrons and tutors who take great pride in the high standard of pastoral care provided for boarders.   

There is a strong focus on both academic achievement and extra-curricular activities at the school.  A wide range of academic subjects are on offer at both GCSE and A-Level. 

Results are excellent, with the boarders being among the highest achieving pupils in school.  95% of Sixth-form pupils leave to go to university, with the majority choosing to study at one of the leading universities in UK or Ireland, including Oxbridge. 

Living in the Boarding community at RSD you’ll be able to make choices that matter and take responsibility for yourself, having a lot of fun and forming long-lasting friendships. Imagine living in a house with a bunch of your best friends.
