The Royal Liberty School, once an exemplary traditional English grammar school, now a state comprehensive boys senior (ages eleven to sixteen) school in Gidea Park in the London Borough of Havering in East London, United Kingdom.

The houses were previously known as Danes, Normans, Romans and Saxons. They are now known as Darwin, Neuton, Rutherford, Saulk.

History

The school was founded in 1921 in the buildings and grounds of Hare Hall and takes its name from the Royal Liberty of Havering.

Royal Liberty was the first school in Europe to install an electronic computer (an Elliott 903, similar to the 920 military version: See Elliott Automation, in 1965) (see RLS Old Boys External Link below).

The school, as a grammar school, operated a squadron of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), incorporating basic, army, navy, and air cadets (including a training glider). (More information would be appreciated).
