Boarding applications are invited from any pupil from Year 7 upwards with passports from within the European Economic Area. Pupils with EU/EEA passports living outside the UK do not require educational visas to study at The Royal and they only need to pay boarding fees as tuition is free.
All boarding applicants are made directly to the School and parents must complete two application forms. Pupils in Years 7-11 must complete a Royal School Senior Application Form and a Boarding Supplementary Information Form and submit them together to The Royal. Students in Year 12 must complete a Royal School Sixth Form Application and a Boarding Supplementary Information Form and submit them together to The Royal.
The Boarding Schools Association (BSA), of which The Royal School is a member, has published a COVID-Safe Charter. The Royal is proud to announce that we are adopting the Charter and are working to ensure robust and safe guidelines for our boarders to return to school.
The Charter is a voluntary code which schools can adhere to and aims to give confidence to everyone that the School is following all appropriate measures to make the boarding environment safe for pupils and staff.
The Royal will continue to ensure the safety of our community and fully supports the measures outlined in the Charter. We want to make the process of returning or joining the school as easy and safe as possible.
The Charter can be found here.
