Joining Royal Russell

At Royal Russell, we make our admissions process as clear and straightforward as possible.

We recommend that the first thing you do is come and see us. Our next Open Morning is Saturday 22 September from 8.30am to 1.00pm. We are a welcoming, family school and would be happy to show you around at a time to suit you during the academic year, so there is no need to wait. You will have the opportunity to see our school in action, view our stunning grounds and extensive on-site facilities, meet our teachers and, most importantly, meet our pupils.

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 one 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.

Upon receiving 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, we hold induction events, giving you the opportunity to meet other parents and your children the opportunity 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.
