Visiting RIC and application

top uk boarding school

We do not hold formal open days. Instead students should visit the College for an informal interview together with the parent or guardian. Preferably this should be arranged in term time so there is an opportunity to meet teachers, see lessons in progress and get a real feel for how RIC works.

We look at school reports closely and these should be brought to interview. We always take up references from current schools.

We are not a highly selective school, accepting only students with glittering records of academic achievement. Our only entrance qualification is an honest determination to work hard. In our experience modest prior academic success at previous schools is not necessarily indicative of likely success at RIC.

Many students who come to us though are already highly achieving academically and are seeking to maximise their potential and chance of securing entry to highly competitive courses at leading universities.

Sixth Form Admissions

The usual points of entry into the sixth form are:

Starting a two year A level course having completed GCSEs, the IB Middle Years Programme or an overseas equivalent at another UK or international school.

Direct entry into Year 13/Upper Sixth having completed the first year of sixth form at another UK or international school.

Joining the College for an intensive one year A level programme

Joining the College for a one year or January-June A level retake programme having completed A level or the IB Diploma at another UK or international school.

The first step is to contact us to arrange an informal visit, interview and campus tour.

International Admissions

For overseas students unable to visit the College the international application form should be completed, giving as much information as possible about the prospective student, including the results of any public examinations already taken and submitted together with all recent school reports and academic transcripts. A reference from either a Headteacher or Head of Year is also required. An offer of a place can be made based on this information.

It is always preferable for international students to visit the College for an informal interview and campus tour. Where this is not possible Skype interviews can be arranged.

Special Educational Needs 

We are not able to offer places to children with behavioural difficulties or those with complex special educational needs that cannot be met in a mainstream environment. We are able to accommodate children with mild learning difficulties such as dyslexia.
