RGS Senior (Ages 11-18)

Senior Admissions

Thank you for your interest in the RGS.  We very much look forward to welcoming you through our doors so that you can experience for yourself what makes the RGS such a vibrant, welcoming and inspiring environment.  In the meantime, please take a moment to look at the further information below about our admissions process.

Our main entry points are at 11+ (Year 7) and 16+ (Year 12).  In addition, we may have occasional places available in Years 8, 9 and 10.  Historically, we have had a 13+ intake; we continue to welcome applications for Year 9 although entry into Year 9 from September 2027 will be dependent upon the number of places available in that year group.  We have, intentionally, a certain level of flexibility in terms of numbers and, as such, we would expect to be in a position where we can offer a place to students for whom the RGS would clearly be the right environment.  By assessing in mid-October of Year 8 and by providing a prompt decision, we are able to give confirmation early in the academic year – and reassurance for parents – as to whether we are able to offer places.

Students who have been either successful or unsuccessful in their 11+ application to the RGS may re-apply no earlier than entry into Year 10 (with assessment in Year 9) or subsequent years.

A wait list is available for all year groups (except Fifth Form – Year 11 and Upper Sixth Form – Year 13).

As a friendly and inclusive community, we have absolute confidence that irrespective of the entry point, students will flourish at the RGS being happy, confident and themselves, fulfilling their academic potential, immersing themselves fully in the broader co-curricular life of the School, and emerging as decent, grounded young men with life-long friends and an exciting future ahead of them.  We look forward to your son becoming part of our RGS family.
