Admission Procedure

The Royal School (Crown Aided) is designated a Church of England Voluntary Aided School. This means that the Governing Body, not the Local Authority of The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, is responsible for the final decision on admissions to the school.

Applications to enter the school in Reception must be made to the Local Authority while applications to enter the school in Year 1, 2, 3 or 4 can be made directly to the school.

The Royal School values highly its Christian ethos, its close links with local churches and the Diocese of Oxford. We provide a distinctively Christian, yet inclusive, environment in which each child is motivated to acquire skills for life and a love of learning. As a church school, we welcome applications from Christian families, and those of other faiths or none. We ask all parents applying for a place at our school to respect this ethos and its importance to the whole school community.

Applications for entry to The Royal School (Crown Aided) must be received by the date advised by the LEA. Applicants are requested to complete a supplementary information form (SIF- available from the school office, the LEA or from the school website) 

Decisions on which children are offered a place will be made by the Admissions Committee of The Royal School during March and offers will be processed by the Local Authority. 

Please check the RBWM webpage for deadline dates and the procedure for applying for a place in the Reception class.
If you wish to appeal an admissions decision please contact the school office for a appeal form in the first instance.
