Royal Grammar School

Newcastle

    The main entry point to the Senior School is at Year 7 (age 11) where we currently welcome about 72 new students from a wide range of schools and 72 students from the RGS Junior School.

    Year 7 applicants sit papers in English, Maths and Reasoning. A number of children are invited back for a brief, informal interview. This is an opportunity for us to get to know them better before deciding whether we can offer them a place in our Year 7. We also request a report from their current school.

    Important dates for September 2018 applicants to Year 7:

    • Deadline for registration: Friday 15th December 2017 (or Friday 1st December 2017 if applying for bursary assistance)
    • 11+ Examination: Saturday 13th January 2018
    • Interviews: 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th and 7th February 2018
