Unusually, Red House School has a few places available for children currently in Year 8 wishing to join Red House in Year 9 in September 2020.

Year 9 is the latest year group we would recommend joining Red House School.

Year 9 is a very important year as children select the subjects they would like to study at GCSE.  In some subjects, such as English, Maths and the Sciences, they begin the work for their GCSE course during Year 9.

Visit Red House School

The best way to really understand what we do is to come and see us; we would love to show you around.

During your tour you will meet our dedicated teachers, see our wonderful facilities and have an informal chat over coffee with our Headmaster, Mr Ken James.

Joining Red House School

Children wishing to join Red House in Year 9 will be invited to spend a taster day with us.

They will sit the entrance assessment to allow us to gauge their potential.  The assessment is undertaken in a relaxed setting and the results are viewed in connection with their school report and school reference.

Your child will then join their current year group and spend the rest of the day enjoying lessons and experiencing life at Red House.
