Our admissions process is run by Surrey Admissions for all transitions from Junior or primary school. We run our own in-year admissions process.
We understand that moving to secondary school can be a challenging as well as an exciting time for our new students. We work hard to ensure that the process of moving to secondary schools is as smooth as possible.
Prior to your child joining us, our Head of Year 7 works closely with our partner primary and junior schools to ensure that transition to Rodborough is as seamless as it can be. The transition process is supported by group and individual meetings, taster days and information meetings for students and their parents. Care is taken to ensure that the tutor groups contain a mix of students from different schools and backgrounds yet allow students to feel confident that, wherever possible, they are with someone they know. To help our new students settle in quickly, we run a series of team-building activities in the summer term and during their first weeks at Rodborough in order to encourage them to make new friends.
For those moving to the area within the year, we run a buddy system for the first few days of a student’s time with us. This supports them with the change to a new school and helps establish new friendships.
