The Royal School

The Royal School Wolverhampton is opening its doors to new opportunities for children across the area….

The Governors and Leadership team intend to formally submit an application to become a Free School with an envisaged date for opening as September 2015. If successful, the change to the School's status to become a state-funded independent school will mean that pupils (from the UK and European Union) in the Junior, Senior and Sixth Form will no longer pay fees from this date.

As the 87th best preparatory school in England, The Royal has an outstanding record of educating local children and our Senior School pupils have even outperformed highly successful selective local schools particularly in the 'hard subjects' of mathematics and sciences.

To find out more information about how your child can be part of The Royal School's outstanding international community please visit, telephone 01902 341230
or email .  As our phone lines are very busy, you can also register your interest in the Free School by submitting an online prospectus request or attend our next Open Day events.

Open Day

Friday, 6 March , 10 am - 3 pm

Year 7 Applications

At this point in time, The Royal School is considering applications for Year 7 as an independent, fee paying school.  The School will not hear whether it has been successful in its application to become a Free School until late March 2015 and a positive outcome is not guaranteed. Therefore, we are required to proceed with the normal process for pupils to secure a place. In September 2015, there will be up to 50 places available for incoming Year 7 students. Attached here please find the information on how to apply for a place and the dates for the assessment test, which will take place on March 21, 2015. Places for September will be given based on the fact that they are fee paying places. However, anyone on the School roll for September, 2015, will be guaranteed a place if and when The Royal School is given Free School status – this cannot be guaranteed at this stage.
