  • The Royal Hospital School (usually shortened as "RHS" and historically nicknamed "The Cradle of the Navy") is a British co-educational independent day and boarding school with naval traditions. The school admits pupils from age 11 to 18 (Years 7 to 13) through Common Entrance or the school's own exam. The school is regulated by Acts of Parliament. The school is located in the village of Holbrook, near Ipswich, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. The school's campus is of Queen Anne style and set in 200 acres (0.81 km2) of countryside overlooking the River Stour on the Shotley Peninsula in an area known as Constable Country. The Royal Hospital School was established by a Royal Charter in 1712. It was originally located at Greenwich Hospital in Greenwich. The school moved in 1933 to East Anglia. The school is the only UK independent boarding school to have ever been continuously granted the Queen's Banner and it flies its own Admiralty-approved Royal Hospital School Blue Ensign. It is one of only two UK schools whose students have the privilege of wearing Royal Navy uniforms, the other being Pangbourne College in Berkshire. The school is affiliated to the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference (HMC). Bernard de Neumann notes the school's significance and impact in British history: "Just as, according to the Duke of Wellington, the Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton, it may justifiably be claimed, that the establishment of... the British Empire, was charted and plotted in the classroom of... the Royal Hospital School."

  • La Royal Hospital School (RHS), historiquement surnommé The Cradle of the Navy « Le Berceau de la Marine », est une école-internat mixte et indépendante britannique. La Royal Hospital School a été créée par une charte royale en 1694. Elle a d'abord été situé à Greenwich dans ce qui est aujourd'hui le National Maritime Museum. Elle est située depuis 1933 dans le village de Holbrook, près de Ipswich. À l'origine, elle était destinée aux orphelins des marins britanniques ce qui fait qu'elle arbore une version du Blue Ensign et est la seule école indépendante à avoir des uniformes de la Royal Navy, ainsi que le soutien de la Reine. Le Collège de William et Mary situé aux États-Unis est une institution sœur. (fr)
