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 by 2018. 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.
