The School Patron
Royal Military Academy
The transition to Academy status of The Duke of York’s Royal Military School offers tremendous opportunities both for the current pupils and for the many generations of children yet to enter its doors. The Academy achieves excellent academic results and provides outstanding pastoral care to all its pupils. This, I know, is something that is particularly valued by the many military parents who send their children to the Academy and will, I am sure, prove to be equally important to all our new parents. I am delighted that the Academy will retain its strong military links and that it will build on the Academy’s ethos which has been so carefully nurtured for more than two centuries.
I have greatly valued my association with the Academy over 36 years and I now much look forward to my continued involvement as Patron of the Academy which, I am confident, will continue to go from strength to strength.
To the pupils, the staff and the parents of the Academy I wish every success for the next academic year and for the exciting times that lie ahead.
HRH the Duke of Kent, KG
