Admission in Year 5 - Junior School
If you have any questions about the admissions or registration process for our Junior School, please complete the admissions enquiry form below and a member of our Admissions Team will contact you.
We understand that it has been a very difficult year for parents with so many schools varying their deadlines and processes, therefore, registrations past our deadline will be considered by our Registrar - Julie Foulkes-Hannam.
We are delighted that you are interested in Radnor House for your child, to register for a place please select the link below to complete our online registration form.
Pupils who join us to start their Radnor House Journey in Year 5 will not require further assessment to join the Senior School in Year 7 as they have already passed the entrance criteria at 9+.

Year 5 Entry 2022 Application Process and Assessment Details
We would advise parents to apply at least one year prior to entry. One class with approximately 20 places is available to girls and boys following a successful performance in the assessment.
An offer will be based on successful performance in assessments of Mathematics, English, reading and attitude to learning. Following the assessment, children who have passed our criteria will be invited to take part in a group interview activity at a later date. More details of the assessment process will be provided on registration. We will review a copy of their end of Year 3 full written school report, along with a reference from their school.
Apply now for entry in September 2022, the deadline for registrations was the Friday 19th November 2021. Applications received after the deadline will be considered at the discretion of the Registrar.
The assessments for Year 5 entry in 2022 will be held on mid-January 2022. This date may change due to Covid-19, any revision will be published on this website and all registered applicants notified.
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 2021 entry is Friday 19th November 2021.
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.
