Royal Grammar School Guildford review by University of Cambridge student: Teaching was very exam focussed, and the school obviously did very well in that respect. But for those [including myself] that wanted more beyond the very restrained public exam syllabus, I can't say I was hugely catered for. Of course, STEP [the entrance exams for Cambridge] certainly filled that gap in many ways, as did olympiad exams and such. I certainly became incredibly and inherently lazy at school.
