About The Royal School

The Royal School is the only school in Surrey to follow the diamond model which enables children to benefit academically from single-sex classes at key points in their education. Pupils are educated together up to 7 years old and from 2018 at Sixth Form. From 7 years old to 16 years old they are taught in single-sex classes; the principal advantage of this teaching model is that boys and girls can be taught in different ways that maximise their learning in the classroom but still allows them to benefit from a co-educational social environment. We have a Junior School, a Senior School, an International department and a Sixth Form based on two sites in Haslemere and Hindhead. Only three miles apart, both sites are set in beautiful grounds with historic and modern buildings.

The Royal School creates high achievers within a mixed ability environment. In 2016 40% of all A level results were at A* and A and over 90% of our University applicants achieved their first choice University place.  Over the last two years over 60% have been awarded places at Russell Group universities.

SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS (16+)
Scholarships awarded in Year 7 or Year 9 are tenable for the duration of a pupil's time at the School, subject to the Scholarship Terms and Conditions and an annual review; In addition, pupils in Year 11 and external applicants for 16+ entry are invited to apply for Sixth Form scholarships. Awards are made for outstanding academic performance, excellence in Sport and Expressive Arts.

 
THE VALUE OF SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
All Scholarship Awards are an honour, carrying a nominal remission in fees of £1,000 per annum for Academic Scholars and £600 per annum for all other award holders. The Governors reserve the right not to make a scholarship award if suitable candidates do not present themselves.

Candidates who are successful in gaining a Scholarship but who require a greater remission in fees in order to take up their place may apply for a means-tested bursary. Forms are available from the Admissions Coordinator or Bursar.

 
DUTIES OF A SCHOLAR
A Scholarship Award is held subject to a pupil maintaining a good standard of endeavour and conduct during their time at the School. Awards are subject to annual review by Governors and there is an expectation that an academic scholar will set an example in the way in which they approach their studies and in their personal behaviour. All scholarship holders will play an active role in the life of The Royal School. The Governors reserve the right to withdraw an award if a scholar falls short of the School’s standards.

 
SCHOLARSHIP ELIGIBILITY AND PROCEDURES
Scholarship candidates should be of the correct age for entry (11+, 13+ or 16+). Pupils sitting for Sixth Form scholarships must be in the final year of their GCSE studies (or equivalent). The School’s entrance papers include scholarship-level questions and need no special preparation. The questions are devised to test ability and potential rather than achievement alone.

Admissions Process

Junior School

Applications are not restricted to September entry. Places may be offered to new entrants at any point during the academic year, subject to the availability of a place and following an assessment to ensure that the School is able to meet the needs of the child.

Once registered, children are invited to a two-day taster visit where they can spend time in one of our classrooms and meet peers and teachers. Assessments in Mathematics and English take place during this visit. The taster days are designed to be enjoyable and relaxed, and no preparation is required. Acceptance will be determined by the applicant’s level of attainment in relation to that of his / her peer group and his / her relative social and physical development.

The majority of our pupils will transfer to The Royal Senior School. All children wishing to transfer to The Royal Senior School sit entrance papers alongside external candidates.
