Our admissions process is designed to find out if we are the right school for your child, a place where she will thrive personally and academically. We hope that RGS Dodderhill will be that place.
The next step is a visit so that you can meet our teachers and pupils, explore our classrooms and grounds and get a feel for whether we are the right school for your family. In an informal interview with our Headmistress, Mrs Atkinson, you can discuss your child and her interests, abilities and expectations.
Your child may see the school for the first time at an Open Morning or on an individual visit but the best way to find out if she will be happy here is a Taster Day. She will spend the day with her prospective classmates, enjoy all that a typical day at Dodderhill has to offer and get to know her way around the school.
The admissions process varies depending on the year group your child is planning to join.
Taster Morning with their teacher and future classmates.
