Senior School Admissions

We always recommend visiting us in person and suggest an individual meeting with our Head, Mrs Pippa Smithson, and a tour of the school. Seeing the Senior School ‘in action’ gives you the opportunity to observe the interaction between pupils and staff and to get a feel for The Royal’s affirmative approach to education. 

Our main entry points are at Year 7, Year 9 and Year 12. For Year 8-10 entry please contact the Admissions Office on 01428 603052 or email admissions@royal.surrey.sch.uk  for further information regarding the admission process.

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME

Scholarships are awarded in Years 7, 9 and 12. 

The Scholarship Programme at The Royal School is a fantastic opportunity for those who excel academically or possess exceptional talent and potential in a particular discipline to develop their skills and passions whilst making a powerful contribution to our vibrant and forward looking school.

We understand the importance of treating every scholar as an individual and instead of a ‘one size fits all’ programme, ours is tailored to bring out the best in everyone and ensure they progress and thrive. Each scholar is paired with a staff mentor to ensure their continual development and support throughout their time at The Royal.  They will have regular one-to-one meetings to set targets, review and make the most of the opportunities on offer.

There is a fee remission attached to all of our scholarships.
