Joining Royal Russell

The Admissions Process

You will receive a warm welcome from the first phone call, during your visit and throughout the joining process.  We are happy to answer any questions and guide you through the admissions process.

We recommend that the first thing you do is come and see us. Our next Open Mornings are on Wednesday 18 March from 9.00am to 12.00pm for the Nursery and Junior School and Saturday 26 September from 8.30am to 12.00pm for Nursery, Junior, Senior and Sixth Form. Alternatively we are a welcoming, family school and would be happy to show you around at a time to suit you during the academic year. You will have the opportunity to see our school in action, view our stunning grounds and extensive on-site facilities.

If you decide that Royal Russell offers the education and experiences that you would like for your child, your next step is to complete our Registration Form.  Please download the form here or complete via Wisepay online here.   At this stage a registration fee of £100 (or £150 for a Boarding place) is payable.

We then give you all the information you need regarding assessments, interviews and taster days to complete your child’s application. This process will be different depending on the age of your child.

Once you receive an offer of a place, an Acceptance Deposit will be payable to secure the place.

Important joining information is sent out in May and prior to joining in September and we hold induction events, giving you the opportunity to meet other parents and your children the chance to make friends before they start.  If your child will be boarding with us, our House Staff are here to welcome your child into their House.  There are opportunities throughout the year to meet teaching staff and parents, through concerts, productions and social events.  

Children settle into life at Royal Russell quickly and easily and enthusiastically embrace their new experiences and routines. Our children are busy, productive and, above all, happy.

We look forward to welcoming you.
