Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs

The RGS adopts an inclusive policy and students with Special Educational Needs are offered the opportunity to join the School if they satisfy the School’s selection procedures.  Parents may be asked to contribute to any special resources.  Pupils with Special Educational Needs will have access to the whole school curriculum and be fully integrated into the School.  Exceptional circumstances, which may affect such access, will be dealt with on an individual basis in consultation with the Head of Learning Support, Head of Year, Deputy Heads, parents and the student himself.

Assistance With Fees

Assistance With Fees

A bursary at RGS Prep offers a life-changing experience, providing students with the knowledge, the values and the skills to flourish at school and beyond.  With our exceptional pastoral care and mentoring schemes, and our culture of mutual support and respect, we are proud of our commitment to provide a secure and nurturing environment for boys from all walks of life.  Our vision is to realise the talent of future generations by providing an excellent education to boys of all backgrounds as widely available as possible.  As a result, although entry is competitive, any parent who would like their son to come to the RGS should not be deterred from applying for financial reasons as bursary funding is offered to successful applicants on a means-tested basis as well as on the basis of academic merit.

Bursaries are available for those boys applying to join from Year 3.  There is no set number of bursary awards that may be made; the funds available will determine the number of awards granted.  The value of bursaries is set by strict criteria and is based upon financial need; these are rigorously means tested and reviewed each year to take into account the continuing financial need of parents and the satisfactory overall performance, at RGS Prep, of the recipient.  Applications for bursaries should be made when applying for a place at the School and before your son’s assessment date.  All information is kept strictly confidential.

The bursary forms can be accessed here and need to be submitted no later than 8 November 2021.

The bursaries are administered by the Bursar and should you require any further information or help, please do not hesitate to contact the Bursary Department by emailing jar@rgsg.co.uk
