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.

Our Open Events are an ideal way to learn about the life of a Russellian. Usually, we would welcome hundreds of prospective families to our campus for our Senior School Open Morning and again for our Sixth Form Information Evening on Monday 5 October. However, this year we have decided to hold a series of virtual open events in order to keep us all safe.

During these sessions you will have hear from our Headmaster and Senior Leadership team, watch a guided tour of our beautiful 110 acre campus and have the opportunity to ask any questions you have during our live Q&A. Spaces are limited so please click here to book your place at our next available date.  

We look forward to welcoming visitors back on site as soon as restrictions are lifted. 

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.
