Royal Grammar School Newcastle

Newcastle upon Tyne Royal Grammar School is a leading independent day school for boys and girls aged 7 -18 years.

RGS is a thriving place, with over 1280 students on the current school roll, more than 250 of whom are in the Junior School, which shares the same site as the Senior School. The Sixth Form of more than 340 students is one of the largest in the independent sector.


Square One originally engaged with RGS with a view to consolidating all energy procurement activities in the knowledge that they would   benefit from our proactive approach and high level of service.

What we did

We compiled a detailed portfolio of each meter point including both consumption and rates. This allowed the client to gain a very accurate understanding of overall cost and usage in its entirety.

Having established the existing contract status, we were able to monitor market conditions, track pricing trends and provide a proposal to tender,  ensuring that energy was purchased at the right time and for the optimum contract term, thus minimising costs to the school and protecting the client from future increases and market volatility.

RGS Newcastle undertook the development of a new swimming pool and sports facility. Square One were able to support the application for an increase in available capacity and new gas supply, ensuring that all documentation was correctly submitted to the relevant parties and quotes received in a timely  manner. We subsequently negotiated a new supply contract and meter installation in line with the clients requirements.
