Red House School has a few places available for children currently in Year 7 and Year 8 wishing to join Red House in Years 8 and 9 in September 2021.

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.

Joining Red House School

Children wishing to join Red House in Years 8 and 9 will sit an 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.

At Red House we are very proud of our…

• Small class sizes
• Unique family atmosphere
• Extensive co-curricular activities

• Bespoke education, tailored to the needs of the children
• Flexible wrap around care from 7.30am-6pm
• Holiday club which enables the school to be open 50 weeks of the year
