BOARDING PLACES

Once you have contacted the Admissions department the entry process works as follows:

Step 1: Pupils are interviewed in the spring term (January to March) of the applicant’s Year 7.

Before the interview we will ask the candidates' current schools for comprehensive reports, which will cover most of our academic questions, and the most recent verbal reasoning test (VRT) score. If the school does not provide a VRT score a test will be scheduled on the same day as the interviews. Interviews, of a general nature, will be conducted by the relevant Housemaster or Housemistress (Hm) and we shall ask each candidate to complete a short interview questionnaire prior to the interview. We shall also ask candidates to bring along their most recent exercise books in Mathematics and English and the piece of work that they are most proud of completing during Year 7 which will form the basis for a brief discussion in order to help assess academic suitability. Following the assessment, conditional places are offered in Houses. 

Before the interviews take place, parents are asked to pay the Entrance Fee.

Step 2: Pass the entrance exams

Applicants must pass either the Common Entrance Examination with an average mark of at least 55 per cent or the School's own entrance tests in English and Mathematics (for those who did not prepare for Common Entrance).

 

For scholarship information please see the scholarship page. 

 

We will temporarily close our lists for new applications between mid-November and April of Year 7 in order to allow us to carry out this assessment process. From April of Year 7 we will be happy to consider later applications by means of a Waiting List Registration for places that may become available.

DAY PLACES

Speak to any of our day house pupils and they will tell you that day pupils at Rugby enjoy the best of both worlds. The only difference from boarding, is that day pupils go home to sleep - every other aspect of care, co-curricular and academic provision is just the same.

It's that incredible experience that has seen more and more children keen to become a day pupil here, and to satisfy the demand, we are delighted to be expanding both our day boys' and girls' houses from 2018-19.

Step 1: Entry to the day houses is decided on academic merit at 11+, in January/ February of Year 6.

 

The assessment includes a general interview with the Housemaster or mistress, with a second interview focused on academic suitability. Current schools will also be asked for a full academic report including a verbal reasoning score or equivalent.

If successful, a place in Town or Southfield is offered shortly afterwards.

 

Step 2: Pass the entrance exams.

Applicants must pass the Common Entrance Examination with an average mark of at least 55 per cent. Children from schools that do not prepare them for Common Entrance will sit our own entrance tests in English and Mathematics.

For scholarship information please see the scholarship page.

We are happy to consider later applications by means of a Waiting List Registration for places that may become available.
