Offer

Priority without guarantee, subject to places being available, will be given to siblings provided they are registered at least three months before the anticipated starting date and their sibling is attending Ruspini when he/she starts. This priority only applies to the offer of a place, not to the allocation of particular sessions e.g. morning/afternoon. Parents wishing to register siblings should do so as soon as possible following birth.

Whenever possible offers are made six months before the anticipated start date. Places are offered strictly in order of registration.

 

04

ACCEPTANCE

We ask parents to accept their offer of a place within two weeks. At this time, a deposit is also payable. Your child’s place is then confirmed at RMS for Girls and you will be invited to stay and play sessions to help your child settle as quickly as possible into Ruspini.

Joining in Years 1 – 6
With the rarest of exceptions, all Year 6 pupils are guaranteed a place in the Senior School and move seamlessly into Year 7.  It is because of the automatic entry to Senior School that demand for places in these year groups is highly sought after and places are limited.  Joining RMS prior to Year 4 is recommended.

ASSESSMENT

There is no formal assessment for entry into our Reception class instead we invite prospective Reception pupils to join us for a Taster Morning in January where they are observed by our highly trained Early Years staff.

Entry into all other year groups is by a more formal assessment which also takes place in January prior to entry.

Our 11+ entry assessments take place in January and includes English, Mathematics and Reasoning. The online CEM tests, devised by the University of Durham, have been designed to assess potential rather than prior attainment. We also ask girls to undertake a piece of creative writing and take part in a group discussion with the Head of Senior School, Ms Rachel Bailey and the Head of Year 7, Miss Helen Stanley.

Scholarship Assessments also take place in January.

However, this day isn’t purely about assessment. We know pupils perform at their best when they feel comfortable, therefore we give all applicants the opportunity to get to know us better. Applicants are invited to have lunch at the School and choose a fun activity, allowing them to create new friendships and familiarise themselves with fresh surroundings.
