Entry to the Royal Hospital School is normally at age 11 or 13, or into the Sixth Form although pupils may be accepted into other year groups subject to space being available. We recommend that in the first instance you visit the School during term time, when you can experience at first-hand the positive atmosphere and busy life of the Royal Hospital School.

If you are looking to move your child during the school year, please get in touch
