Year 7 Entry (11+)
We are delighted you are considering Royal Russell for your child.
We will meet and assess your child when they are in Year 6 for entry at Year 7. We do this by gathering information from a selection of sources including the Assessment Day and a School Report from your child's present school.
See below the application timeline and information on registration.
The Assessment DayThis consists of a number of activities within a day spent at Royal Russell. We believe the day gives us an opportunity to get a well-rounded view of your child, rather than depending solely on assessment results. The day will include:
Assessment - assessment in English, maths, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. We use the Atom Learning platform to carry out these assessments on a PC during the assessment day. You can view tasters of the assessment, by clicking here https://app.atomlearning.com/public/taster/royal-russell-school
Interview - we interview all candidates and ask them to bring a piece of work or an object of interest as a starting point for a discussion.
Lunch - candidates will have the opportunity to relax with their peers over a delicious Royal Russell lunch.
An activity of their choice - all candidates will take part in an activity with their peers. We offer a range of activities for candidates to choose from and these may include sport, cooking, art, debating, design and technology or computer science.
