THE RGS LEGACY



Established in 1879, Raffles Girls’ School (RGS) has always taken up the challenge to push boundaries, provide innovative programmes and forward-looking initiatives to nurture the best female talents in Singapore.

From 77 students in 1879, RGS now has a student intake of more than 1,800. The RGS girl inherits a legacy of excellence, not just in the academic domain but strives to be her best in a diversity of pursuits that gives her a balanced view of the world. RGS is where Singapore looks to for excellent woman leaders in diverse fields.



A NEW CAMPUS, A NEW HOME



To facilitate the continued growth of the school and the expanding needs of our students, the school has been given the ‘go ahead’ to build and move to a completely new campus that is planned to be ready in *2019. Located along Braddell Road, the new RGS campus will incorporate vital design elements in line with the school’s education philosophy, values and priorities.

It will be a campus...

...that sets a new benchmark for learning spaces that are student-focused, environmentally-friendly and inclusive of the community around us;

...that is future-oriented with versatile learning spaces to support the unique and distinctive character of RGS, encouraging intellectual discourse, research, innovation, creativity and leadership development;

...with facilities that enable RGS to foster a healthy balance of academic excellence and sporting prowess, and also continue the legacy of nurturing talents in the performing and visual arts.

The new RGS campus will be one that is future-ready to lead the dynamic educational landscape in Singapore; a campus that is not merely school buildings but a home for girls with aspirations to push boundaries and for them to learn to contribute to the greater good; and a school with a heart and a sense of stewardship towards its wider community.
