How to Apply

We have multiple entry points for children applying to join Rendcomb College.

Our Nursery welcomes children from the term they turn 3 years old and the Junior School welcomes applications throughout the year for all year groups; from Reception through to Year 6.

Our Senior School has three main entry points; at Year 7, Year 9 and Lower Sixth/Year 12. Entry into other year groups is also possible dependent on availability. We also understand that family circumstances and work commitments do not always fit into the school year and therefore we welcome applications for the Senior School throughout the year.

A typical admissions journey entails the following steps:
  • Initial enquiry
  • Personalised visit or Open Day visit
  • Registration
  • Assessments
  • Offer of a place
  • Acceptance

Registration adds your child onto our entry lists and can take place at any time throughout the year. In order to register your child, the Registration form should be completed and returned to the Admissions Office together with the non-refundable Registration Fee of £100. Please note that registration does not necessarily guarantee a place.

Offer of a place and Acceptance

For successful applicants the Acceptance Form is sent alongside an offer of a place for your child (both conditional and un-conditional) from the Head of College or Head of Juniors. The Acceptance Form is signed by both parents and returned to the Admissions Office with the Acceptance Fee (£250 for Junior School Students, £500 for Senior School UK students, £2,000 for EU students and £11,000 for international students). This Acceptance Fee acts as a deposit and is refunded at the time the pupil leaves Rendcomb College.

Shadow Day

Once a child has been offered a place at Rendcomb College, we offer the opportunity for them to join us for a Shadow Day at the parents' request. Shadow Days provide children with the opportunity to become more accustomed to life at Rendcomb College should this be required. The Shadow Day is not mandatory.
