How to apply
If you would like to consider a place at RGS Springfield for your child, we recommend a visit as the starting point.
We would be delighted to give you a personal tour of the school or meet you at one of our Open Days. If following the visit you think your child would enjoy the learning environment that we have created, you can formally apply for a place by returning the completed Registration Form with the £45.00 fee. If applicable, we will then request a reference from the current school and, on receipt of this, we will invite you to bring your child into school for a taster day to join their class for the day and enjoy lessons and making new friends.
Children coming into Reception and Year One will be informally assessed by their class teacher to gauge their working levels. Places will be offered following a successful taster day.
For those children joining in Years Two to Six, an assessment will be arranged. The assessment involves Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning. We would then formally offer a place, subject to acceptable assessment results (if applicable) and on return of the acceptance deposit together with your child’s birth certificate, a place is then confirmed. You may, of course, enter your child for future years but we would not normally complete the paperwork until the year preceding admission.
We understand that relocation and house completions do not follow termly patterns and welcome children to join at any convenient time. Where we may not have a space available, we will offer a place on our waiting list and will contact you should a place become available.
When joining Nursery, depending on the age of your child will determine when they will be invited in for a familiarisation session. Parents are welcome to stay with very young children to help them settle for a while before leaving them in the hands of our capable staff. The youngest children may take a while to settle as it is a new experience for them and we may offer several sessions to make sure they are ready for Nursery. Once they have settled happily we will write to offer a place.
For any questions regarding our School, please contact us on 01905 24999 or email us.
In order to register your interest, please complete the attached and return to us with a £45.00 fee. Once an offer has been made, a deposit of £100.00 is required to secure the place.
Please note – we ask for a deposit of £500.00 for any child entering RGS Springfield below Reception. If a parent has an older child in Reception or above, this will not apply. £400.00 of this amount will be refunded as a credit against fees when your child is in the Michaelmas Term of Year One. The remaining £100.00 will be held against your account as is all normal for all RGS pupils. Parents removing their child prior to Reception at any stage will forfeit their deposit entirely.
