How to apply

If you are considering a place at RGS Springfield for your child, we recommend you begin by visiting the school.  We would be delighted to give you a personal tour of the school or meet you at one of our Open Days.

Following the visit, you are invited to formally apply for a place by returning a completed Registration Form, along with the £45.00 registration fee.  If applicable, we will then request a reference from your child’s current school.  We will invite your child into school for a taster day, where they will join their class, take part in lessons and enjoy 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 children joining in Years Two to Six, an assessment will be arranged, which includes Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning. Subject to acceptable assessment results, we would then formally offer a place.

On return of the acceptance deposit together with your child’s birth certificate, a place is 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, your child 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, in which case we will offer several sessions to make sure they are ready for Nursery. Once they have settled, we will write to offer a place.

If you have any questions regarding our School admissions process then please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01905 24999 or email us.


Independent and Private school Open Mornings and personal visits provide families with the opportunity to come and view the School and learn more about its history, ethos, facilities, curriculum and more. You can meet with the teaching staff and pupils and find out more about the advantages of private education. We look forward to welcoming you to RGS Springfield, a leading independent, co-educational Prep School.
