How to Apply
We have multiple entry points for children applying to join Rendcomb College.
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.
Contact the Admissions office today to discuss entry to Rendcomb College:
A typical admissions journey entails the following steps:
- Initial enquiry and/or Open Day visit
- Personalised visit
- Offer of a place
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.
Once a child has been offered a place at Rendcomb College, we offer the opportunity for them to join us for a Shadow Day. Children are teamed up with a ‘buddy’ who has similar interests and they attend lessons and activities during a typical school day. Shadow Days allow children to adapt and engage with school life here at Rendcomb and also encourages a smooth transition while moving schools. The Shadow Day experience is not mandatory. For Senior School children, we can also offer an overnight so that they can experience a taste of boarding life and get to know the Houseparents and their team.
