They will also be asked to complete a computer adaptive cognitive ability test. We will contact their current school to request a reference and predicted grades at GCSE.

Conditional places will be offered subject to the results of the entrance procedure and will be based on expected grades at GCSE.
Learning Support Examination Access Arrangements
We are able to grant access arrangements such as extra time or use of a computer for the examinations to support those applicants with a diagnosed learning difficulty or disability. The request should be supported by a written report from a recognised expert, dated within two years of the January assessment date. A written request for special access arrangements must be submitted along with the written report, by the published registration deadline. Evidence of history for the need of this provision will be sought from the applicant's current school.
Please send copies of any relevant reports confirming the details of the specific arrangements along with the registration form. The specific arrangements for the examinations will only be confirmed once the relevant reports have been received and reviewed. The deadline to apply for access arrangements for 2020 entry is Friday 15th November 2019.
Radnor House, as a co-educational school with a family centred ethos, prioritises the admission of siblings who wish to be educated at the same school. To facilitate this, preference will be given to applications from girls and boys who have a sibling currently being educated at the school who fully meet the entrance requirements.
Admission of a sibling to Radnor House is dependent on the availability of places and on the sibling successfully completing the published assessment criteria for admission to Radnor House.
Scholarships are awarded for academic excellence, usually at Year 7 and Sixth Form entry points, but may be awarded at other times at the discretion of the Head. We also seek to reward those who adhere most strongly to the Radnor House values of excellence, courage, respect and perseverance, with such awards usually being given to existing pupils at key transfer points within the school.
Limited bursary assistance may be available in exceptional circumstances, usually to provide short-term help when parental circumstances change. Resources are not available to fund long-term or substantial levels of financial support. All enquiries about bursaries should be made to the Head in the first instance.
